David L said:Yeah, I know with AEC theres a mandatory enrollment of four years in the forces as for pilot theres a minimum of ten years service. Also if Im not mistaken AEC's are more stationary at air force bases compared to pilots.
My girlfriend of two years also seems to like the AEC option a lot better than the pilot positon.
Ive also talked to a couple of people that are working AEC in civilian life and seem to be doing very good for themselves. But it really seems you've done your homework when it comes to different trades and what it takes to achieve them.
All the Best to you,

CDN Aviator said:Just look at an MPRR and you will see "restricted release date:" as a field in the "military data" portion. You can put the popcorn back on the shelf, you don't need to eat any for this one.
CDN Aviator said:All the pilots i have flown with who came under ROTP had a restricted release date of 7 years post-wings.
When i became an AES Op, i have a restricted release date of 2 years post-wings.
David L said:I was under the impression that only Air Weapon Controllers are the ones that get a chance to fly along with pilots.
David L said:Sorry, as you can see im a newbie at this. I know its rare for AEC's to be on planes and most are on the ground. Could you care to explain exactly you M.O. if its not to much to ask?
More specifically what I should expect if I was deployed as an AEC on a plane? Is there different tasks than those that are on the ground? Are you more likely to be deployed more often that those that are on the ground?
