Is anybody in here in the ADF or has been in before? Wouldn't mind a chat if there is. Cheers
Thanks mate, I'm looking to get in as a helicopter pilot. The training is in Canberra now by the sounds of it. Very intense training and medical assessments but once past that I think would be so fucking cool being in charge of the blackhawks and seahawks and the rest. There's a bit of survival at sea training too which sounds crazy but to pass all that would be so self satisfying and rewardingNope i thought about it though have some family who serve. Is pretty tough i think you do 6 months training (which is in Melbourne i think) then they place you somewhere where they think you will be best served and you will be there for 4 years they might move you around here and there depending. If you want to stay on after 4 years is up to you.
Thanks mate, yeah Navy also have helicopter pilots. How far into training is your family member?Raaf and army both have helicopter pilots, if your looking at raaf then you'd be going into Victoria (Edinburgh) for enlistment and initial training, then of to either NT or Williamtown for flight training, most training was run out of Wagga but has been moved around a fair bit lately . If your looking at Army helicopter pilot then it would be Williamtown. Previous experience and current family member is going through helicopter training in the army at Williamtown.
I'm going to say about a month ago, around the same time my son and he stopped playing some pc game, he was pretty cut when his cousin couldn't play with him . He is an officer in the army and was trying to commission into the Raaf but was denied so he was given priority for helicopter training. Guess the army wanted to keep him.Thanks mate, yeah Navy also have helicopter pilots. How far into training is your family member?
It's a lonely life as a navy vet.My son is in the Navy and is training to become a clearance diver. Very demanding but he would not do anything else.
Means it would be fun to knock off armed BLM idiots. Unclear?What is that supposed to mean?
You have the occasional useful/informative/interesting post, but a lot of baiting/trolling and purposely racist/offensive comments that are written to just get a rise out of people and you would be well served to have them eliminated from your repertoire. End of engagement.Means it would be fun to knock off armed BLM idiots. Unclear?
Like the guy that took care of this bloke
Although I disagree. I respect you were courteous in your assessment and response. Very rare here.You have the occasional useful/informative/interesting post, but a lot of baiting/trolling and purposely racist/offensive comments that are written to just get a rise out of people and you would be well served to have them eliminated from your repertoire.

Sorry to the OP for derailing your thread.
