17 Sqn joint RAF/RN , direct entry?

Hi all,

Looking into joining the RN as an AET and have come across 17 Sqn, a joint RAF/RN unit out in the US.

I'm unclear on the actual process of anything past Ph1 training. Is it possible to direct entry into this unit fresh out of Ph2? Or due to it being a testing unit do they pull bods, who already know what they're doing, from other units?

I left the Army because I was fed up of rarely deploying and getting shite postings, being posted to California would definitely be a plus.

(If this would be better placed elsewhere in the forum then mods please move, cheers)

Almost certainly better placed on the Military Aviation forum at https://www.pprune.org/military-aviation-57/ - but be prepared for accusations of running before you can walk (and perhaps find another "adjective" to precede "postings"!)

It's been the Test and Evaluation Squadron for the F35-B at Edwards AIr Force Base for the last 7 years or so, but embarked 3 F35-Bs on HMS Queen Elizabeth some 6 months ago, indicating a new stage in its role.

If I were you, I would start the application process via the website sooner rather than later. You are going to need to get some paperwork from Kentigern House, so start now, in case it takes longer to get than you expected it to.
