My son wants to join up as an Air Despatcher so he can fly and then hopefully get in to another flying job with the AAC. As an ex member of the RAF my only experience of air dispatchers was 47 AD at Lyneham in the early 80's. Can anyone tell me where he is going to do his basic training, what he will be doing when fully trained and where is he likely to be stationed? I'd prefer him to do something technical as he has A levels but neither I nor the staff at his recruiting office can persuade him otherwise. The Army website makes things all sound as glamorous as possible but I know from my own experience that a good many jobs can turn out to be totally unrewarding, will his choice be the same?
