Ok, so i've passed selection for the army as air tech, but have been told i could be waiting a while for my start date. I have also applied for the RAF and could be in for August. But that doesnt particularly bother me. Im just wondering what your opinions are for the job in each force because i cant make my mind up. here are some points i thought of -raf has better postings for air tech, more bases -raf has more aircraft -army seems to have better promotion aspects, so better pay faster etc. -army has quicker route to being fully qualified, so get on to tech pay faster. -the "green" side of life of the army appeals more, but would i get much as an air tech? So to make things more complicated, im also looking at VM in the army because i have been told there is more of a chance to get more stuck in, so to speak. im just wondering what your opinions are on the trades in both services, and which would be better in terms of variety, and (forgive the cheesyness) adventure.
