"F-35 Lightning II Jet To Make Maiden British Flight"

"The F-35 Lightning II will make its international debut in July at the Royal International Air Tattoo in Fairford and in the same month will also fly at the Farnborough International Air Show.

This will be the first time the combat aircraft has flown outside of the United States. The selection of 2 UK airshows demonstrates the significant role that Britain has in the programme. Approximately 15% of every aircraft is built in the UK."

Any AET's on here willing to answer some questions of the general variety on life as an AET and also some questions on the courses/modules that are undertaken at HMS Sultan? Any help would be appreciated.

Ask away as there are plenty of us on here. The search function will also bring up some AET type threads which may already answer some of your questions.

Thank you redmonkey, the search function proved very helpful, hadn't discovered that previously. I found some really great information and a lot of my questions have been answered and I am now more excited than ever before about joining (hopefully nothing trips me up).

Thanks again.
