Aircraft Handlers!

#1
Hi everyone, kinda new here, just sent off my application and SC/CTC check, Joining up as an aircraft handler. I'm kinda fanatical about aircraft so i thought, yeh, this is the job for me! the only bad thing is that i've been told there's an 18 month waiting list! but i'm gonna wait it out, in my eyes its a job worth waiting for plus it gives me time to improve on my fitness. Anybody else here an aircraft handler? give a bit of info on the life etc?

Cheers

All I can say is yes but that was in the 80s. The AH branch is one of the best, lots of good mates that you can stay in touch with though the Assoc.
Only recently we had a weekend in Carlisle where i met up with lads i hadn't seen for 25 years ( so not lads anymore!)

I spent 8 out of my 10 years as a Tractor Driver on Squadrons & onboard Fearless, Hermes & Invincible, so can't tell you about Fire Station duties.
If you like being out in all weathers then this is the job for you.

Times change so I can't comment on the Navy today but I still have several mates still serving & I joined up in 1977!

Yeah, the wedge tech's are a good bunch, unless they are moaning about having to go out on the line or move a cab or do any marshalling but I wouldn't expect to do anything that isn't in my remit......Hold on?
