Hi all.


I just wondered seen as I've just formally submitted an application if anyone else on here had any experience of being a current serving or has been ex member of the Royal Air Force Reserves?
Not done it myself, but do have a son who is an NCO ground engineer on the fast jet fleet, if that's any use

Likewise @paully @lbaspotter , not myself but I used to work with someone who joined the RAF also working as a ground engineer. I've not spoken to him for a long time but the last time I did he said he was really enjoying it. He'd been stationed out in Cyprus for sometime but he'd travelled to many places with the RAF.

Forgot to update. I attended the open day at RAF Brize Norton in March and have a very informative day with 4624 Squadron. I was shown around the base and told everything i will need to know regards joining the RAF Reserves also had the chance to have a look around the 99 Squadron Boeing C17, . For security reasons i wasn't allowed to take any pics bu can confirm that is one big aeroplane.

Tomorrow i will be sitting the AST (Airmen Selection Test) here at the AFCO in Leeds

Bad news is that I failed the AST (Airmen Selection Test) on the first attempt.

Good news is that i can have a 2nd attempt in 4 weeks. So I'm resitting the AST on Tuesday, May 7th. Gone and bought a book so to better revise some of the questions and will allow me to put more effort into it this time around. I just bloody hate working out Fraction's.
