Hi all, Just a question out of idle curiousity for the front seaters out there, do you consider that successfully passing the APC and then going on to fly was the pinnacle of your Army career? Did you also consider that it was worthwhile in the end and has it opened many doors for you? My curiousity has been tweaked by finding out how many pilots that I used to fly with, don't fly any more, and haven't continued into the aviation industry on leaving the air corps behind. Do many non AAC pilots complete the course and then after completing their time bar, go back to the Royal Signals for example? I remember an old WO2 once likening flying a lynx around the north German plain as being about as exciting as driving a bus, at the time I thought that there was no way that one could ever get bored with flying but I guess that's not the case with all people. No hidden agendas or anything with my query, just idly wondering if anybody out there passed the APC and then found that army flying wasn't the be all and end all that they always thought it would be. Cheers Issi.
