AET and the F-35...

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I'm joining that navy as an AET and after basic I would start my specialist training around Christmas time, when will the navy start training AET's on the F-35's? I'd love to have the chance to work on that kind of aircraft.
  2. Im fairly sure there is already AETs working in the states gaining 'experience' and not VD.

  3. You can only ask (during Pt 2), you will be expected to put in a preference.

    When I was a Sea Harrier instructor the RN hadn't sent enough bods to Merlin, so everybody out of Sultan (excluding stokers) went to CU. That was an easy 6 months rewriting the course notes
