Aircrew branch transfer

Adamski

Good afternoon,

I was wondering if the age restrictions for aircrewman, pilot and observer still apply to serving matelots? I’m considering a branch change but I am nearly 35.

Thanks

If you're still serving surely it would be easier to go to an actual UPO, or go on Modnet and look it up, or get your DO to look into it.

Going to my UPO is like pulling teeth and they just refer you to BRs anyway.
I’ve looked through the BRs and couldn’t find the answer.
I don’t want my boss/ DO to know at the moment and I don’t want to tell them if it’s not even possible.

That's a fair point, I feel.

If you want to go aircrew you should really be doing the donkey work yourself!! Especially if you're serving.
Take it from someone that's been there and got the badges!!

I couldn’t delete my last posts so I had to edit them and couldn’t leave them blank.
I have done the donkey work but haven’t been able to find the answer, hence posting a question here.

Have you emailed the aircrewmans school?
Have you phoned the aircrewmans school?

Must admit I was lucky. I just walked into the aircrewmans school. Had myself seconded to them for a fortnight and hey ho - it was as easy as that. The info first hand.

However, I'll TRY and get an answer for you.

The lack of response is the reason I give up helping.
And newbies wonder why some of us oldies get a bit sarcastic and anti!!!!
