        If I could financially leave the RAF and get a well paid job I would.

        I dont want to work aerospace when I leave like so many other ex RAFies.
        Leave in green Overalls and come in the next day with blue ones and an extra 12.50 an hour.

          Whats the pay, work and shifts like - do you need any qualifications? Is it hard like boot camp for first year? I might join...

            Basic training is nothing like it used to be. When I went through we got all the shouting and our stuff getting thrown out of the window if it wasnt up to scratch

            But pay from day 1 thanks to "pay 2000" is rubbish. I remember getting 100 quid a week during basic training.

            Shifts can vary. depending on Aircraft type or location.

            Such as heavy lift VC10 or Hurc they do "roughly" 7 days 7 nights and 4 off.

            Fast jets do week of days weekend off then nights monday to thursday weekend off.

            If you in a bay or any other section you could be permanent Day shift 8 til 430. Finish 1230 fridays then weekend off.




            I should be on permanent days but BAE got behing schedule so were picking up the pieces.




            Oh on qualifications I cant comment coz the system has changed. But I joined up as a mech with only 2 C grade GCSE`s

              i had a good look round a VC10, C-17 and L1011 on night stop in birmingham last week.

              vc10 is a noisy bugger, and the c-17 is unbelievably quiet for a 4 jet, and it took off in about 3 yards lol

                  Left the RAF on redundancy last April, after 17 years i'm still working on aircraft as its money for old rope. Working in Bahrain at moment as my new job has a reserve forces role and we do 6/8 weeks out here every few months.

                  Cheers
