Future of the AAC in Germany.

#1
Gents,
Im currently on the AAC pilots course and am wondering about whether or not 1 Regt AAC will be remaining in Germany or if they are coming back to the UK.
Any heads up is appreciated.

At a recent briefing here in JHQ before a mixed Service/civvy audience,Comdr Rasu announced that the ONLY units (apart from the Osnabrück Gar, which almost closed) which are definately going are Arrc plus supporting elements, and that will be summer 2010. Other Units may follow as and when. That statement ran slightly contrary to previous announcements. As far as I know 1 Regt AAC will have a future in Germany for some time to come.

Just be wary of announcements of, and/or major building work going on at 1 Regt.

History has shown that such major expenditure is just a precursor to the abandonment of said facilities.

2012 - 2525 Possibly, Dishforth, Benson or Yeovilton..... was the last I heared but that will probably change again, get on the bus, get off the bus.

Weather is lovely here at the mo, and the fags are cheap. However we are not getting much sleep due to the locals and Turks sounding their horns every few nights. Come on over and not get picked up on a promotion board with the rest of us.

Satire. (Just so that you can spot it in any future threads)



I always have been bitter and twisted. Its my most endearing quality.

Along with being FAT and rancid and of course the type of chap who completely abandons his 2 best mates when they are on tour. So A C*nt really then.

Latest on 1 Regt, by the way, is disbandonment, once they realise that there is no Lynx, future, Super or otherwise, left in Hanger 1, and all the aircrew are maintaining currencies in 1 of our 3 Bedfords.
I think the promotion board may already have disbanded us anyway, if the full screws and stripeys results are anything to go by....ie Nil. It would seem that being on OPs constantly is no longer merit enough and one must be able to tinker with some AH bits of kit. Well I for one would rather remain blissfully unpromoted (and I shall). Long live the Lynx...the Lynx is dead. Hip Hip Hurrah.
Harrrumph.

Not at all......If everybody else can get picked up!

Spend a little more time and effort on your jobs instead of blagging on about cheap beer, fags petrol, Blah, Blah, then you may get picked up......

P.s Hold on cheap beer Petrol.....Are ther any posts for me there? :?

Fully agree with you GG! Suprised and saddened to see not a single 1 AAC Cpl pick up off the last board.... heres to next year. Certainly enjoyed flying with you all! Missing the Regt , well, actually....errr.....

As to the question of 1AAC moving or otherwise, it has been talked of for sometime now. Where would we go? Who/What base would be ready to accept us now? Finally - if the decision was made tomorrow, it would take some considerable time to action - so fear not. Germany is a fantastic place to live - not that you'll spend much time there!

Duty rumour has it that with the onset of future lynx, the AAC needs to bin 2 Lynx squadrons, and as all airfields over in the uk are either owned by the crabs or turned into detention centres for all the foreign, money-grabbing cnuts that now infest our island, the 2 sqns in Germany are prime candidates for the chop!

See the latest Defence Estates post from the MOD website. There is a report on the restructuring of garrisons. It details locations that are closing and area's for 'super-garrisons'. Not read it yet, but we seem to be pulling out of Germany in the long run.

One of the 'Super-Garrisons' is Gutersloh, hence all the building work on accomodation and the like that is happening there at the moment. The issue of 1AAC is different im afraid.
