I'm no expert on the Air Branch, but I think the link you have posted applies only to regulars. I do know that it will be impossible for you to be sufficiently trained in just 2 weeks per year (unless you have some specific existing air enginnering skill).
Your best bet is probably to ring your local AFCO and/or Unit.
Good Luck, and if the Air Engineering Branch is closed to you, I hope you find something in the RNR that interests you
Thanks for the reply
I've been into my nearest Careers Office, and they didn't say anything about only applying to Regulars...
And the training for it, after the standard 9 week course, you go into a 6 month training course at the College of Aeronautical Engineering, if that makes any difference :(

Hi Jimbo,

Sorry mate but there was definitely a communications breakdown at the AFCO. The 9 weeks/6 months training is Regulars only (Think about it, it is 8 months training - not exactly "part time".). The only way that you can join the RNR Air Branch is from the RN Air Branch. You will either have to join full-time or choose aother RNR branch.

BTW, if you join the RNR, you don't choose your branch until you leave New Entry.

Yeh Jimbo - sorry to p*ss on your chips matey but without previous service in the RN air branch there is very little (if any) chance of you joining the RNR air branch.

I hope that doesn't put you off joining though. The RNR still has alot to offer.
