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. hope to join as a ground crewman in AAC in 2012. How hard is it to become a pilot as an NCO later on?
  2. Not a problem, as long as you can pass selection for pilot.
  3. Thanks for the reply. Have my fitness test hopefully in the next few weeks, what would you suggest to someone heading into phase 2 in AAC as groundcrew? ( hopen i get it, no places till the new recruiting year)
  4. Just bear in mind that you will be competing with other very good and capable Groundies.
  5. I would be thinking of going on to aviation crewman and then pilot but wouldn't be expecting to get there within 4 or 5 years. I know it would take longer
  6. Could you let me know where these guys are? You have kept them well hidden for the last 18 years!!

  7. Does anyone know if there will be many groundcrew places come April. No dates in this recruiting year. Will there only be a small few places, making it very hard to get a place?
