Whilst I await my medical, I just wondered if anyone could tell me a bit about air engineer technicians in the fleet air arm. I've passed the psychometric test with a 'very good' score but i wasn't told what but I was told I had my pick of jobs to apply for and chose air engineer technician which I then passed the interview for. Could anyone tell me why they're called WAFU's and what the job and pay are like? I am quite interested in it and with aviation a growing field it would be a good trade to be in so am committed to it. With my 'very good' score is it a good job to be in or are there other more challenging job's? Interestingly my brother who applied at the same time was told he was one of the first people to be offered an air traffic controller job as a rating because of his 'very good' score when he had initially applied as something which he was told he had too high a score for, I presume he scored higher than me but he's not a lot cleverer than me just a few years older so I assume I had already selected a challenging job? Any help much appreciated, wish i could be more succinct.
