xx Herc overflights - info source?

September 07, 2016, 13:13:42 by Occam
I don't want to (ab)use my DWAN access to operational sources who might be able to answer this question, so I'd appreciate some insight as to who I could ask "as a member of the public".

Last night, a Herc (or I strongly suspect a Herc) made repeated, low level (2000' by my untrained eye) passes over our little town in eastern Ontario.  More than a few residents took to our community Facebook page asking what was going on, and some seemed to be quite freaked out over it.  I assured them it was likely just pilot training, and that I was pretty sure it was a Herc (four engines, sounded like the Herc I've heard many times).  On his lowest pass, he had what I presume were landing lights (bright lights on the wings) illuminated.  We're about 50 km from Ottawa airport, and it didn't appear to be on an approach (we do see commercial aircraft on approach to YOW frequently, but they're at a much higher altitude at that point).

Who could I ask a) if it was indeed a Herc and b) what they were up to?

You know things are getting tight when the air force fixes bayonets ;)

But seriously folks, is this something that is still practiced?

xx Wanting to OT from INF to Air Force

August 21, 2016, 16:21:02 by crow736
HI everyone

I have been in the infantry for the past 8 years. I have been wanting to make a change for a few years now and I am looking at my options.  I have been married for a year now and am extremely tired of being gone from home way to often. I am looking to make a change. I want to stay in the military and have been looking into an OT to another trade. I have been looking into the Air Force and the Aviation Systems Technician trade. I was hoping to find a few answers before i went any further with the process.

I know that in the military it is hard to try and get the postings you want but one of my goals is to try and end up in BC on the coast or the Island with my wife. Does anyone have any info on opportunities to be posted there once in the trade?

Does the air frame you pick affect your posting a lot ?

I have seen the forces.ca video but what is the day to day work of an AVN?

How much are AVNs tasked out for other jobs or sent away on courses ?

I am looking for a little more structure in my life I know it is never going to be perfect with military life I have been in long enough to know that but what I am trying to do is see if the grass is actually greener on the other side before I climb that fence.

Any help or pointing me to someone that would be willing to talk would be greatly appreciated

Thank you
