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. PremiAir are looking for floaters, and a permanent pilot for Central Counties ASU at Halfpenny Green/Wolverhampton Airport.

    Give Jim Laird(Chief Pilot) a ring on 01895 830930. Don't bother going the "correct" route via Human Resources at Blackbush.
  2. Whats the starting date?
  3. Do you need to be able to fly a plane or can the seat of your pants count?
  4. The job will be available from early 2008.
  5. Gowddammit.

    Do they need a clerk?
  6. The floaters are required now, and the Central Counties job is February.
  7. Just saw this...not being air type person whats a floater ...

    there is only one kind of floater I know...!!!!!!!! :?

  8. The police and ambulance air services (or the contracted agencies who supply the pilots) usually have pilots permanantly based at each of their locations. A floater is a chap who isn't permanantly attached to one of these and can be sent to an ASU (Air Support Unit) if the unit needs a bloke for a short while (if a permanant pilot is ill or if they are temporarily short of chaps). Its a good way of getting a foot in the door of '10 Regt AAC'......a posting we are all after. ;)
  9. Thanx for that........ :D
  10. If its by the seat of your pants thats most of the AAC aircrew out then!
  11. Not sure if thats a compliment or a slur! :D
  12. I'd see it as a slur, most AAC pilots have worn the seats of their flying suits out and are showing thier Homer Simpson pants
  13. Some of us still have the silky skills and fine figures. Still wearing the pants even if they are dark blue now!
