Hi. This is my first post after recently finding the forum and I have a few questions if anybody can be of help. I am 31 years old and have decided to return to the forces. I was previously in the Army for 3 1/2 years and left 8 years ago due to thinking the grass was greener etc... Anyway, I am now looking into my options and would like to go into a role that will challenge me mentally and offer decent promotion prospects in the future. I am not looking for a short career this time around! After a fair bit of research into units / roles, I am keen to pursue further my interest in the Navy and specifically Aircraft Control. I have the GCSE's required to enter as a rating. I am aware that once I register my interest, my old service docs will need to be requested. How long will this take? I left the Army of my own accord and with an exemplary record so I am assuming this will be a straight forward process? Also, it is difficult to find a great deal of info on the Aircraft Controller role. What does the selection involve and what tests are undertaken at Raf Cranford? What is the average time taken to complete the selection process, and how long before starting at Raleigh once the selection is completed? Any help would be much appreciated!
