Welcome to PIO. This is a great site for you. You will become addicted I promise! We are going to the RAAF in just over 2 months. It doesn't seem any time since our interview in Australia House - now 10 months ago........ If you have any questions about the process along the way feel free to drop us a line. OH going with the same rank - Flt Lt and same job - Air Traffic Control only with a loss of 2 yrs seniority - not a problem. You will fill our more paperwork in the next little while than you have probably ever done in your life - but the time soon passes and it will be worth it. Our stuff in storage - we've been overseas for the last four and a half years - goes in two weeks and our stuff from here in only 4! We fly back to the UK mid October and fly to Melbourne via 3 days in KL and Langkawi Island courtesy of ADF. Keep in touch and fire away those questions. As a PS my friends Nev and Angie are going with the Navy in a couple of weeks. PM Them - you will find them under that name - and they will help you loads.
All the best.
Im a matelot doing the Oz thing, Just sending off the medical paperwork at the moment (the size of Sugar Loaf mountain) Quick dit on me : PO Submariner (Sonar), married with 3 girls, will be hopefully going out after time done (2 yrs time) Currently based up at Faslane. If you have any Questions or thoughts related to Navy or anything etc then i'll gladly share what i have:radar:
