I am currently starting the joining process for AET and have a few unanswered questions, Was hoping some of the real people could answer them. I am 29 yrs old and served 5 years in the ARMY (EOD) followed by my HNC in electronic engineering in civvy land. I am currently working for BAE Systems as an Avionics Systems Integration Engineer (Typhoon), Although it aint as exciting as i was led to believe and find myself extremely bored doing the same job day in day out. As you can guess i miss the service way of life and hope to use my Avionics experience to its full advantage. 1) How much money will i be on after training? (need to know how much am going to lose by joining). 2) Is there a way for me to fasttrack with my engineering experience i.e. can i get to LH earlier then 3 Yrs?
