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. Anyone off to this???? Or has anyone been to one and wanna tell me what it's like?

    My guess is that you'll be fitted for a helmet and coveralls, and then given a safety brief, and then have 45-60 mins flying experience, with an opportunity to take the controls, and to do some aerobatics.

    Should be great fun - Many years ago Leeming was the base for the RN's elementary flying training - we lived at Leeming, as did the Bulldogs, and we flew daily from Topcliffe, so we did not get in the way of the grown-ups!
  3. We received 40 mins flying at Yeovilton on a 'Potential Air Officer Experience Day'.
    Then an enthusiastic chat about JSF, good chats to some trainee pilots on holdover, and a tour around ATC (was I the only one interested in that?),a walk around the historic flight.

    It was well worth it
  4. Awesome.

    Okay next question. If it's just a bit of a tour and a go in a plane, can anyone think why the e-mail I received would say "Candidates should also bring Sports Kit, Trainers and Wash Kit".

    The timetable doesn't mention anything that might need this??!?

    The time table is as follows:

    9:00 Shares
    9:30 Arrive
    9:45 Welcome
    10:00 DVD & FS
