FATpass - flying aptitude test caution...

Funnily enough I'm aware of a SHar pilot in the mid-90's on Illustrious who was a failed Killick Stoker originally.

Following the logic that everyone must be good at something, it shows that even if you are rubbish at one job, you can later succeed in another. :-D

Just to play my panther card, I know of a man who failed the Submariners medical, passed the FAA Pilot one and ended up an Admiral, gen. dit, he told me himself, many in the Wafu world will know him!

If the lad who started this thread thinks he's going to be a zoomy, then the odds aren't great....

They do say there's no sex like a CASEX?! I enjoyed one some years ago when we chased a Sub for about 3 hrs, the ship and pingers were "hot", and the mighty Lynx did shed loads of attacks. Then the ship got a delayed signal a few days later from the Sub's tasking authority saying how unfortunate it was that they couldn't actually participate after all and hoped we wouldn't be too disappointed..... Give me a Skua any day!

:-D A CASEX the most boring exercise know to mankind

Passive is massive, but active is attractive... :thumbup:

Being an ex-TAS Ape I have had my share of CASEXs. However the only part I did not particularly enjoy was ASW Lookout on the Bridge Wing (especially when you have a gash relief). However this was mitigated by getting your swede down under the ASWD's chair "listening" to the underwater telephone, randomly putting "unreadable" in the UWT Log every 10 minutes... :twisted:
