Can't decide what to have as my first choice,driver port op,air dispatcher or air Corps soldier/ground crew. Any one give me advice on what is the best option/career move and what has more chance of promotion.

Even though my wife knows what is going to happen and how much strain will both be under anything got to be better then stacking shelves in a supermarket.
Thank you mate that's helped a lot, with port op your based at marchwood Southampton and not moved very often and your rarely get deployed that much.but the air assault brigade looks very excting. Cannot wait for my assement now I have put so much work into my fitness and basically changed my whole life around because of it.
That's why port op is a good option as it is still in Southampton where we live. But she gets that I want to experience a lot more that's why, aac is so appealing and I know that I will get to see the world doing that job. Where as port op I have been told you don't get posted away very often. But if any one can tell me what marchwood and port op is like?There's knowing she and the kids aren't going to see you for potentially months at a time and then actually experiencing it. Still, if she has family and friends nearby to support her while you're away.
I'm on course with several AAC atm and they seem to get some pretty decent postings from what they've said as they're attached / supporting all sorts of various units located everywhere. Sounds alright!
Thanks for the help mate spoke to a lot of lads on fourm and I now have a nco giving me a lot of info. I was wandering does any one know if there is anything the same for the air core as these are my two choices and I cannot decide.Have a look at 17 Port and Maritime Regt RLCs Facebook page. I`m sure you could get some pointers there.
I was there in 1978 - 79 at the REME Wksp. I suppose it might have changed a bit now though.
