Does any body know if it is possible to join the Army Air Corps TA, or is a closed shop for ex regular member`s. I was chating to a mate who recons they have no training team to take strait from the street. I have 2 years TA time in the RLC does that count..
The AAC TA ground crew is open to anybody who is Ex regular services ie.. Navy/RAF/Marines no formal ground crew experience is necessary. If you are currently serving in the TA with over 3 years in (I think) you may also apply although dont expect to keep your rank, as promotion is slow due to the size of the Regt.
No drill nights they only meet up once a month normally the 2nd weekend of each month accommodation and 3 meals a day are provided.
Moral is good and few people leave due to the Relaxed attitude. Its a case of work hard play hard and treat all as grown-ups that volunteer to be there
All pilots must have done the Army Pilots Cse, as a regular to join and places are very hard to get.
More details can be found on the following number:
The TA AAC at netheravon is a good crack.
As bob said we get treated like adults, work hard but play even harder. There are various camps every year most of the time working with regs.
Rank is hard to come by, however, there is no bullshit and every rank helps out and digs in.
Give it a whirl
