hi all... just out of curiosity, on the rn website on the careers page, in the aircraft handler section it says

"Any previous Fire Service or driving experience will be extremely useful."

I can understand the fire service experience...but just wondering where the driving experience comes into it??

Cheers in advance

:roll: Also you will need to have considerable diving aptitude skills as well, and not have a surname of Vickers, but thats another story :lol:

You could also get your HGV & drive the current fire trucks, be a ships driver, drive the flight deck tractor or tractor driver on a squadron when ashore.

In the olden days, i drove a tractor for various squadrons ashore & on flight deck of Hermes & Invincible for 8 out of my 10 years.

You haven't imagined it - it's listed here in the Professional Training section:
