Any AET's out there who can answer a few of my questions?? I'm aware of the Navy pay scale and know the pay during basic training and phase 2 at sultan. However im interested in finding out how much it goes up to when your qualified as an AET after the 6 months at sultan? The navy scale for Able rates is something like; Â£14500 to Â£ 25000. I was hoping that the pay for engineering technicians would be towards the middle to top end of the scale? say Â£17000?? any one out there have first hand experience? Obviously it's the Navy team spirit and life style I have signed up for and not the money! But was wondering how long it would take to get me back up to the wages i'm on now.
