air craft engerneer

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. hey does any 1 no the waiting list for air craft engerneer?
     
  2. Not sure on the exact timescale but I would suggest that it is long enough to take some basic English lessons.
     
  3. "Yesterday I couldn't spell Engineer and now I are one" !!

    :D
     
  4. I was told the waiting time is the standard recruiting time, and that was last week. Has it gone up since then?
     
  5. How about

    Excuse me but does anyone know the waitlng time for aircraft engineer?

    When you can write in English correctly then it may be possible to tackle other more complex subjects.
    Best sign up for an English course! :twisted:
     
  6. I suggest you do some research and learn what an Engineer is. I suspect that you shall never become one.
     
  7. Confirm that official Waiting Time for AET is listed as 5 months as of June this year.

    In practice, some applicants are waiting 7.
     
  8. So how will that affect someone like me who sat the RT in February but has been messed around on the medical? Will my wait time be from when I pass the medical?
     
  9. I passed my interview on 28th april + got my entry date for 13th of september. Seemingly there is a shortage of aet so you might not have to wait that long
     
  10. I passed my interview of a month before you though. I've had medical referrals to contend with.

    For those entering into air engineering, it may interest you to know that currently 1 in 6 Ratings joining the RN are currently joining in this specialisation & we need about 300 ish this next year. To achieve this figure we "over-recruit" by about 20% to allow for those that either leave voluntarily, fail training or submit notice to quit.

    The waiting time, as Soleil has stated is indeed around 5+ months from passing all elements of selection, however it is anticipated this length of time will increase if current numbers of applicants persist.
     
  12. Ninja,
    How would that affect me? Would I get priority for a place because I've been in the system since before that waiting time, or would it just carry on as normal?

    I don't mind waiting either way I suppose, I just need to make plans if I have longer to wait than I originally thought.
     
  13. :roll: Martin Baker has an immediate vacancy for you as i write :lol: :lol: :lol:
     
  14. Trouble is they turn mechanics into technicians overnight and look what happens!!!!
     
  15. ok I got told by my careers advisor that the waiting list time was from when you took your psychometeric test.
     
  16. :roll: Yep they can tell you the cubic capacity of a Jam Jar!!!! but are F****D when it comes to, take the lid off :lol: :lol:
     
  17. I knew they were pushing for AETs!
    I said this to the AFCO and he said he didn't know about that, I was like, but it's plastered all over the RN website... http://www.royalnavy.mod.uk/careers/ has been for the last year or so. In my own head I'm on first name terms with Chantel Mcclafferty, she's got so many clips on there.
     
  18. Does it come with a free Tie, Scouse? :wink:
