ATR Pirbright 28th July

#1
Bad new's.. Just got a phone call from the AFCO telling me its been changed.

I now start on the 25th of August at Bassinbourn in Royston..

That makes it a 21 week wait since passing ADSC.

If anyone else's date gets changed to 25th of August and at bassingbourn let me know I want to know if its just me.
apparently its becuase there will be no training staff in Pirbright on the 28th.

Hows your training going then?

I start basic on the 28th at Pirbright aswell. Starting to buy bits and pieces of kit myself, and I know what you mean about the old credit card!!! Looking forward to it now, but also starting to get a bit nervous when I think about it. Just want to get there now though, as I will have waited 6 months between passing selection and starting phase 1. Good luck to you all I will see you there.

Phew 6 months! You must be going the more popular tech jobs. Ive been through 3 jobs in six months, ha! Fair play for sticking with it for that long though, its only round the corner now.

Likewise i cant wait to be there, good time of year to doing it aint it? Cant say im looking forward to the post run betty swallacks though :) . The food aint half bad either from the rumours ive heard.

BTW theres a few pirbright vids on youtube if you havent seen them. The barracks look waaaay better than you'd think.

I am going in the AAC so dont think its a tech job as such, just assuming that there are not many vacancies in the AAC. It will be 9 months from walking into the AFCO to starting basic so you could say its been a while!! Not complaining though as I am sure it will be worth it in the long run. I think the hardest part has been keeping up with the training. Have been training 5 days a week since March and it gets boring after a while. Hopefully the PT at basic will be a bit more interesting than running and working out on my own? I am sure it will be alot harder though?!! Good luck to all who are starting on the 28th and I look forward to seeing you there.
