So I'm in the process of joining th FAA as an aircrewman. I've read on the royal navy website and the pdf files that they provide and it says that aircrewman, unlike pilots or observers, can only serve on merlin helicopters (either HCF or ASW). However, I have been in contact with an aircrewman via Instagram (@royalnavycrewman) and it seems he serves on the wildcats, as all of his photographs are of wildcats. He also had a picture used by 'forces news' about wildcats. Is there a special way to end up serving in the wildcats as a rating aircrewman or is it just a case of the royal navy not updating their info. Also, generally which helicopter is better to serve on out of the merlins and wildcats in your opinions. Thanks for any help.
