Hi all, I was wondering if you could help with a couple of questions. In relation to applying for Tech (with a leaning towards Avionics) what exactly does the 'soldier first' ethos actually translate into? I suppose I mean the sort of non-trade training you would do post Phase 2, and particularly what the 'soldier' role would be whilst in sandy places. I could imagine that Mechanics / Electronic Techs might be needed to go along on operations (I may be mistaken), but there seems to be less scope for Avionics guys to do anything than work on the aircraft when they're back at base. Am I way off..? Also - Adventurous Training. Sounds like a huge Army perk, and I'd love to get some skiing/diving/gliding but - without wanting to sound immediately cynical - how much of this would actually be available these days? How often are you allowed out on these things? Thanks in advance, T.
