AET's being used as Chockheads by the R.A.F.

Discussion in 'The Fleet Air Arm' started by Junglie_killick, Apr 5, 2007.

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. Don't know if this has been raised before, but I was chatting to a friend who's working Joint Harrier as an AET, apparently the R.A.F. aren't too keen on letting the Roger Nigel get their hands dirty and are instead sticking them on the line, like to hear if anybody knows anything about this, also your opinions. cheers!
  2. In my 2 1/2 years on 1 Sqn, the AET's were used on the line and for trade work, just like the RAF's SAC's and JT's. Many of the lads work hard and are thought highly by the RAF Cpl's and Sgt's. There are some Navy and RAF lads that give the good guys a bad name, but that's the same everywhere.
    The RAF doesn't have Chockswedes, so I don't know how the comparision came up.
    I have learnt that each RAF Sqn does things differently. So maybe your friend is on a different Sqn.
    Hope this dispells another JFH myth
  3. Perhaps he should have joined a proper squadron then... :lol: :wink:
  4. In todays Fleet Air Arm there are no longer PROPER SQUADRONS.
