IA 's who are on flying duty, say on 5 Sqn, get supplement 3 wages and RRP.
Do they get RRP(F) or RRP(FC)?

Don't forget, you need to be able to do this to qualify.

Mr Brown

My understanding is that ATC have a fast track to substantial Sgt upon passing the ATC Course and NCAITC. In summary; they followed the same training pipeline as NCA to a ground trade.

Thanks Tiger Mate, I'm aware of that, it was this comment that mentioned ATC fg that was new to me?

Thanks again for responses, decided that I have nothing to lose by applying now. Going to give it my best and if I get told to go and get 'more rounded' experience as happened to Unchecked, then that'll be a good opportunity for the traveling/volunteering.

Hadn't considered the residency issue that muppetofthenorth mentioned so thank's for highlighting that. Even if there are ways to circumvent that barrier, it's definitely worth considering.

I'd give it a miss if I were you. It's a non job.
Gibraltar, Iceland, Norway, Denmark, Holland, Germany, Spain, France, Italy (mainland and Sicily), Greece (mainland), Malta, Cyprus, Oman, Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, Canary Islands, Azores, Ascension, USA (all of the Eastern Seaboard border to border and Hawaii), Canada (Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, Vancouver Island), Indonesia, Fiji & Australia.

Many of me muckers will have a shedload more, but I confess I was I a bit of a slacker when it comes to collecting the old jolly ticks.

Pensions nae bad for a non job either.

Would be great to hear as to how his application is progressing. Hope it's going well, OP.

Travel is of course an essential part of the job and a big draw for many, visiting the above list makes it look very glamorous, and sometimes it is but many times visits to these places will be fleeting and unglamorous.
I could add a similar list but with the addition of a many great crap holes that I couldn't get out of quick enough, lots of visits to dry, sandy parts and other places not seen in any holiday locations.

I think you might have overthought my point old chap

I could of course bold all the ones where I found "glamour" (admittedly, frequently somewhat "fleeting")...but that might come over a tad immodest
