Hello. I was wondering if anyone has any experience of re-joining from a position similar to my own. I left after 12 1/2 years in 2009 as a full sup LH. I had been a LH for 4 years and was aged 33 when I left. In the 4 years since leaving I have worked as a contractor for 2 different foreign navies on their helos, built the RNs latest helos in the factory and also did a short stint this year as a contractor working for the FAA at yeovilton. I am now 37 and would like to rejoin in approx 2 years when i'm about 40. I have settled down and got my pre-midlife crisis out the way and would like to see out the last 10 years of my 22 until i'm 50. I believe my experience gained in the last 4 years "outside" would be invaluable to the RN and they are getting a FS LH with 16 or so years experience with none of the training required as its already been completed! I would greatly appreciate peoples views, experiences and ideas with my scenario. Any questions please feel free to fire away! Thank you very much!
