Avionics and Aircraft Trades becoming pinch-point trades?

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Have just been told by a reasonably reliable source that as of 20th Sept 2007 Avionics and Aircraft trades have become pinch-point trades.

    On the basis that Booties and Crabs who fall into that trade group are currently receiving large (9-10K) retention bonuses and Sigs trades are also rumoured to be receiving the same sort of thing are we next?

    As there seems to be quite a few people signing off or seriously considering it, will we get the same thing coming our way?

    Any info?
  2. Haven't VMs and Reccy Mechs been pinch point trades for ages ? I didn't see them getting an FRI.

    Fingers crossed, needs to be targetted correctly i.e at the young lads doing the tours.
  3. There are a number of trades in the RLC that have been OPP for well in excess of 5 years or more and not one penny! So don't buy the XR2i just yet
