I hope someone can answer a few questions for me. I am an ex Royal Signals soldier who left in 2003 and rejoined as MPGS in 2010 at a RNAS. Thing is, rejoining has stirred something up in me an I now realise I can offer a lot more than lifting a barrier up and down for the next 20 years. What I'd like to do is transfer into the F.A.A. And try for AET. Don't get me wrong, MPGS is easy and I get shed loads of time off but I want a challenge. So, can anybody answer me the following: 1. Would I be required to complete the full phase 1 training at Raleigh? 2. I have a SFA house and would I be entitled to it during phase 1 and 2 training? ( wife has her own career as a nurse here so this is probably the most important question) 3. Will I be able to stay on an equivalent pay increment or can I expect to drop wages? I hope I haven't posted I the wrong bit or feel free to move this post. Thanks, Barra.
