I suppose they must have trained (if that the words for it) some place but Feck Knows Where.

This just may provoke one of them coming off their private net and tell us.

The Fleet air arm artificers used to do their training at Lossiemouth [HMS Fulmar].

I think Arbroath was a training place aswell for wafoo's [HMS Condor]
 
Fleet air arm tiffs mechanical trained at arbroath,not lossiemouth, after bramcote,i think they went to raleigh,after siskin closed they did their fire fighting and aircraft handling at culdrose. air traffic was done at raf shawbury, the joint airtraffic course was done at raf shawbury,this was an adqual,in the raf you had to be a sergeant air traffic only for three years before you got the course,once they got checked out (blue card)they became a flight sergeant,the rn as usual got us cheap i was still a killick with a blue card,but it was an adqual,you didnt have to do it,load of balls how could you refuse?It is now im told (cos in my day it was different)a branch of its own which must be a doddle ,where the acs go i dont know,theyre a secretive bunch and appear to think they are special,when in reality i only wish that i had one job.No doubt one might come out of the darkness,and give a brief,dont get your hopes up.

I did my very basic training at Raleigh then parts 2 & 3 at Daedalus. Part 4 training was done at the air station you were drafted to after finishing part 3 training but that was in 79/80. I believe that parts 2 & 3 are done at Sultan now.

Surely you mean HMS Tern.
On a lighter note I saw an interview with a Shetlander who stood there and said "I am the last Twatt on the islands" it turned out his surname was Twatt, how I laughed as did the reporter.

Basic Tiffy training was at Fisguard, opposite Raleigh, Torpoint. Late 50's

Engines and Airframes went to Condor, Arbroath.

I don't recall Lossie being a training establishment.

I qualified decades ago as an HC at Portland... I believe the secrative HCs now train at Yeovilton inorder to develop their war stories!
 
Call me sentimental...........But I liked Daedalus. The station sent many men onto Carriers, as ships Company 'cause they were based at Pompey and could get home.........This was after The Ark/Eagle etc etc.

Went back there for a butchers with me camera and took some piccies and "flew" over it on Google Earth which is mega brill BTW
