Army Air Corps (Volunteers)

6 Regiment Army Air Corps (Volunteers) is an Attack Helicopter Ground Crew Regiment equipped to support the Regular Army in providing vital Attack Helicopter Support. We are looking for people to train as: Re-arming and Re-fuelling Specialists, Command Post Operators and Signallers, Drivers, Logistic Specialists (Chefs & Supply) and Clerks.

We also look for individuals with the leadership skills, confidence and maturity to become Officers.

7 Regiment Army Air Corps (Volunteers) is unique within the TA as we directly support HQ Land Command with battlefield helicopter tasking. During peacetime this mainly consists of liaison flying, regular and TA exercise support, TA and cadet familiarisation flights and general Regiment training.

No previous military experence is required to join as a member of our groundcrew as we will provide all the training that you require, that being said we are always more than happy to receive enquiries from ex-Regular, ex-TA or serving TA personnel.
Don't do this to me....would love to join up again and this would be ideal for me....not sure how the Pilots would react to a grunt with more knowledge of thier systems than them but hey it would be fun finding out.

Unfortunately the fitness had plummeted in the last 4 years and the wife would rip body parts off me if I joined up again.

Oh well..sounds like a good chuckle for those involved.

That would be a bite then? :D

First time I've seen this however

The upper age limit is normally 32 but there are instances where you could join up to the age of 40 or even older if you have previous military service. Contact us for further information.
Is this policy now?

Frog P , haven't you got anything nearer the Midlands? Don't fancy fighting all the caravans to getting back after a testing weekend....
3 and 4 Regt AAC are based at Wattisham, hence the 202 Bty, Bury St Edmonds re-badging / re-training process.

The TA Re-balancing document states that a new Sqn within 6 Regt with be formed at Dishforth, which is where my interest lies (North Yorkshire to Wiltshire is a long drive, even at small o'clock on a Saturday morning). However...

...the results of the Defence Airfield Review and JHC's Project Belvedere could mean 9 Regt have to move South, so nothing is certain at this time.

(All open source BTW)
Funnily enought white horse, I just PMd him with a similar question. Positive reply so hoping something happens soon as I need a challenge and this sounds gooooooodddd !!!!!
6 Regt AAC(V) is looking for people to train as Re-arming and Re-fuelling Specialists, Command Post Operators and Signallers, Drivers, Logistic Specialists (Chefs & Supply) and Clerks.

The link below describes Regular Army training for AAC Groundcrew. There is an Implementation Team at 6 Regt now working to design TA equivalent courses:

AAC(V) recruiters are scheduled to attend IWM Duxford on the weekend of 20/21st May.

TAC phone number is: 01284 753407

I applied to 7 Regt back in January/February, and got all the paperwork in to the admin people, but i've heard nada since, except for the one time that i called up asking about it. Not getting much info out of them, to be honest. Frog Prince, can you PM me with some info on why this might be? I assume you're with 6/7 Regt in an official capacity.

Certainly ! There is no excuse for this - I apologise.

My best guess at the minute is that your security clearance has yet to come through (are you a transferee or a new recruit ?). However, I know from personal experience that - er - how can I put it ? - the cogs do not always turn smoothly. I'll PM you and follow up at Nethers this w/e.

Please be stick with it. The groundies with 7 Regt are a good bunch, there is little or no shouting and bawling, just getting on with the task in hand. The Regt is off to the continent in the Autumn to conduct mountain flying and - guess what - the groundies go too ! (Swish, swish..)

blimey! kinda puts my current signal postion in the shade.

frogprince, 2 questions, what nights do 7 regt train on?
And are there going to be anymore Army Air corps recruiters touring the country, eg: airshows and the like?
cheers. :)
