No I don't want to become a winged god I just have a query. The missus has a work mate whose hubbys in and is, as the wife has been informed, going to transfer to become a pilot. No probs with that, except he's in in late 30's with only a few to push. Also not much of a flyer rank wise. Now a mate of mine who was a very young sgt applied for the pilots course years ago, did all the tests and homework etc no problem, but was refused due to age, he was late 20's (or was it early 30's ????) Question is, has the levels dropped (in an age sense) or is this guys bullshitting his missus. Another story going is he is posted to Germany but she can't join him for some 6 months due to lack of pads So on the level ? minor Walter ? or chancing it with the old lady ??
