Being that there aren't many Marines on here aston I suggest you might want to try asking at an Armed Forces Careers Office. Many people who use this site are ex-RN or ex-RM so what they tell you might be out of date.

You may already have seen this site but it's worth a look: www.royal-marines.mod.uk

I see from a previous post you are Army and wished to transfer to RM ? This would therefore be your first avenue.

Royal Navy Aircrewman (ACMN) are selected form within the RN and RM, namely you come from a source “branch†(Cook Mechanic Seaman etc) an upper age limit does apply 27 I think.

There are two strands to ACMN branch. Jungley (Commando Helicopter force, Sea King MK4) this is about 50/50 Marine / Navy. The other is Maritime Aircrewman which means Merlin in ASW / ASuW roles.

I here there is a RM on Merlin course at present.

In sum suggest you approach your system to start a Transfer to RM (or in deed RN) After that you will have to compete for an Aircrewman place, I imagine you will need to complete at least one operational tour as a Booty before being considered for ACMN. That is unless you already have a transferable skill such as Air Gunner.
