I know there are some aviation trades in RLC but are any of these open to reserves?
I'm wondering if there is any use for HHI.
My bad, in my defence it was a long time (and a significant quantity of alcohol) ago.HHI isn’t a trade - it‘s a specialist qualification that pretty much any trade can apply for. It used to be a two week course at BZZ (JATE). I’m well out of date, but pretty much the only requirements were that the applicant had to be an SNCO or officer. Plenty of TA folk did the course, as if they couldn’t make Annual Camp, they needed a 2-week course to qualify for bounty, and this was one avenue.
@shiny_arrse - Crabs never had Super Puma
47 AD had a TA/Reserve troop as part of the regular sqn at Brize. @Sexton Blake may be able to advise.There has been a TA air despatch squadron. It was headquartered somewhere in the South-West near Lyneham - possibly Cirencester. It disappeared following a defence review sometime this century. There was once a thread about it on here.
395 Troop (TA Air Despatch as was) were co-located with the regular Sqn at RAF Lyneham.South Cerney, I thunk.
