YOUR FIRST TOUR
After your initial recruit and trade training, you will be assigned to a UK unit where, under supervision, you will apply your newly gained skills in a live environment adding immediate value to the RAF. Once your experience builds and you demonstrate the required competence levels, supervision will be reduced and promotion to Senior Aircraftsman can be achieved. This could be the start of more promotion opportunities that could be achieved through your hard work.
YOUR FUTURE CAREER PROSPECTS AND PROGRESSION
You will initially join the RAF for a period of twelve years on a Notice Engagement. After completing one year’s total service, you will be eligible for promotion to Senior Aircraftman, providing you pass a Trade Ability Test and Basic Trade Training.
