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. My pilot was :thumright:
  2. Thanks.
  3. Seen some about 5ft 6ins, don`t know if this helps.
  4. Are you 6 foot 1 sat down then?
  5. As long as your arms aren't too short, should be OK
  6. yes, although the ability to pass the training might help as well.
  7. First time of reading I thought the question was "Can I be ..... if I'm 61?" and my initial reply would have been sit down and put your slippers on and forget it. On re-reading I would still offer the same advice, damn dangerous things those parafin budgies.

    I always thought height limitations were really about fixed-wing and leg length so that you didn't lose you kneecaps if you pulled the blind.
