Looks like an oppurtunity has just come up to hopefuly instruct wildcat helicopter, find out in a few days, hopefully get past phone interview point for this one,  as have taught mechanical systems on helicopters for a few years, so you could be correct Tragic.

RN, Dizzy. Royal Navy! You said nice words about it!
 But why isn't the RAF your favourite service? After all I was in it and always humbly hope for your deliciously favourable opinion. Mind you I was only in it for 2 years and can't match Swanny's record of service which is pretty damn impressive.
Good luck with a job, Swanny. :P

Still working on it, had a couple of interviews and got another phone interview on wednesday, if only 32 years experience equated to an nvq level 3 i would be working by now, but will get there hopefully soon.  will update
