Quick question

Discussion in 'Joining Up - Royal Navy Recruiting' started by Mitchel, Jul 23, 2009.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I no they are'nt the the best jobs but i got offerd steward or aircarft handler and i was thinking is the air caft handler just waving in air cafts or is there a lot more involed.

  2. Bit like spelling, a lot more involved. Ninja or soliel will give you kindly advice before Norway Chris gets on your case. :wink:
  3. Sorry I'm not one of the named chosen ones but hopefully my advice will do.

    NA(AH) - there main role is to fully prepare the aircraft after the engineers have finished. They put the fuel in, attached the armaments and move the aircraft around the deck. They do also control the movements on the flight deck. Biggest draw back is the long wait of 18 to 22 months from sitting the RT to entry to Raleigh

    Std - there main role is to look after the officers day to day living. Serve meals work behind the bar etc. They usually have secondary duties of first aid parties supporting the specialist medical teams in times of conflict. Good point 4 to 6 months wait to go to Raleigh.

    But really it's down to you
  4. Be anything but a Dabtoe thats what i say :D
  5. NA(AH) DO NOT Refuel, arm or move the aircraft unless onboard ship they CANNOT touch the aircraft unless allowed to by the engineers, they are the NOT most useful people in the world!
  6. :roll: :roll: But you couldnt run a "Proper Strike Aicraft Carrier " without them. Chockheads rule okay!!! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
  7. :roll: Crickey Supermario The chockheads wil not be best pleased with you making them QM and QS on all A/C types .They had 10,000 launch and landings, with associated aircraft movements on my last Carrier to cope with :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
  8. Having served in the RN for some time during the 70/80`s i can tell you that i would NEVER NEVER choose to be a Steward,dont missunderstand me as i had a few oppos who were Stewards and they were really good eggs,but do you really trully want to wet nurse a ferkin occifer,serve his/her scran,tidy up after him/her wash dust and hoover the weirdroom and generally mollycoddle them,and then theres the cock and ass partys where you are there in your pretty half blues bending over backwards to be nice and polite,not forgetting they will have there gronks/wifes with them in a home port and your smiling and asking the lardy ass cow if she wants a drink,get ya ass down to millets,buy a good quality anorack and join the FAA,leave the Stewards branch to the splits and good luck young man, 8)
  9. Chockhead or piss pot juggler - hmmmm tough one - would stay on the rock 'n roll if i were you :D :D :D
  10. 2 Chockheads at play :wink: [​IMG]
  11. NA(AH) no contest, you'll be a chockhead but it's better than std.
  12. Head Honcho Chockhead at play FDO :roll: :roll: http://usera.ImageCave.com/scouse/Eagle1970(1).jpg
  13. And i would like to second that, 8)
  16. So, if the NA(H) do not refuel, or arm or move aircraft around and do not touch an aircraft without an engineers say-so; let's ask the original question: What do these people do all day?
  17. FFS how many pics do you want!!!:([/quote Naval airmen AH are aircraft handlers, and as such are not tradesmen, never the less they do a very important roll on Aircraft Carriers and airstations, they are responsible for spotting and towing aircraft,marshalling them to the launch position, and recovery positions, Also they provide Crash and smash teams/firefighters onboard and ashore. They always had their own Fire/engines and Nubians/Bowsers which they crewed 24/7 at all RNAS. Dont know if thats true today,with all the outsourcing going on . Scouse EX LREM (AIR) Aircrewman, Chockheads friend :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
  18. Lie around in clicky-beds, soaking up the rays. :wink:
