Hello, I'm a civvie fixed-wing pilot (CPL/IR/ME). Before getting into aviation, I did a SSC with the slime, then five years in the TA infantry. Given all the "overstretch" I recently went back to the TA to ask about rejoining as a squaddie, but apparently at 42 I am considered "too old" for infantry selection. I therefore wondered if my quals might be any use to AAC? I know that civvie pilots are crap, AAC is inundated with candidates, and AAC TA recently disbanded etc. But I have a fair bit of time on Islanders and King Airs, and the cost of training me in AAC procedures/tactics on (say) King Air is likely to be small compared to training an ab-initio pilot. I already have a reasonable idea how to do all the soldiering part of the job. Is this worth a shot? I'd happily rejoin full time if there was a path within the system to do this.
