Hello everyone ,
Haven't been over here lately as much as I wanted to!
So I am finally in Borden doing Common Core and starting my AVN Course in January !! Yeah me !
I had a question for people with experience here .....
So my goal is to go Flight Engineer , that's like my go to thing. But first I got to to AVN ( which I am very happy about ). I really enjoy Borden and the surroundings , I enjoy the base itself too. My question tho is this one :
What's the best route in order to get the best experience to eventually try to go for FE ( on a griffon would be even better ) ?
I was thinking that now that the 400 SQN is doing a lot of the 300 hours work on the griffon it would be a nice selection because I would really go in depth. But at the same time , I am still young and I want to deploy and travel the world , and I know that over at the 400 I might not get that much opportunity to do it.
Of course I wish I could go 427 , but as a new recruit straight out of my 3s I don't think it's something that happens a lot. I thought about 430 in Valcartier , because I know these guys do deploy a bit.
So I guess a second part of my question is , Should I try to get the most experience in a SQN that doesn't deploy as much , or should I enjoy doing it younger and maybe not get as much in dept experience before applying for FE?
