My GCSE's from school all those years ago are poor, have a NVQ 3 in motor vehicle studies so am technically minded so to speak so maybe that's an option, although I read you need certain quals for the roles you mentioned??
lol going as quickly as I can, barb maths and literacy all squared away, medical forms are now in so just waiting approval there, training ass off for good 1.5 run time currently @ 9.30 mins, those bloody heaves/pull ups I'm worried about!
in your shoes i would join the REME as an air tech, not only do you get let loose with spanners and hammers, you will also be trained to fix the world with black nasty!
good luck in whatever you go with!
Hey El Tel
Join as whatever you feel is the right choice for you mate. As for age I'm not that much far behind you at 27 (28 in june) and applying as long as you pass everything age shouldnt matter according to my AFCO. Just made decission on my job choices with AAC Groundcrew at no. 1 as always wanted to work in aviation. No chance of me getting REME aircraft tech as grades not good enough in GCSE's.
