EOI submitted, fingers crossed that I get selected and immigration don't kick off about my daughter. Managed to scrape together 185 points (I hope I read the destructions properly).

Good to hear karma on its way we will keep our fingers crossed for you

Hi i am sure the children will be as good as gold, got passports now, dean has got to go and get a drugs test done, for some reason it got missed at Oxford. If anybody on this thread needs anything bringing over, our container will be leaving the UK in the beginning of September, so please pm me with your lists and i will happily send them across. Dont worry MICK AND SHERREN i have got your list!!!!!!

GOOD LUCK DEBBORAH AND CO

Hi D.C. ta for the reply on the other thread. Good luck with your move.

on another note, folks I'm new to this site so please bear with me

At the mo I'm still in the British Army Air Corps, pilot on Lynx, and looking for info as to transferring to the RNZAF as a pilot. Easy enough some may think, but the thing that goes against me is that I'm not a commissioned officer, but a sergeant, so having had previous emails with them across the water in NZ I get the distinct impression that they're not interested in a non-commissioned oik like me. Does anyone have any details on the recruiting side of life over here in Blighty? Obviously I can go through the procedure once I've arrived in NZ to join, I'm just trying to explore all possibilities etc and to keep the expense down of course! (I can fly already, I just need to prove that I can use a knife and fork properly )

Ta in advance

Bruce

Hi Andy & Debborah enjoy the flights hope you havent been to the cinema much recently as plenty of films to watch in 24 hours

Ann & Dean cant have much room in that container with all those teabags and goodies enjoy the packing experience

And morning Bruce cant offer to much advice on recruitment they are looking for pilots but from above you have already talked to them but here are a couple of links

http://www.airforce.mil.nz/careers/v...ry/default.htm

and contact details

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:thumbsu p: Were here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What a journey! The children were fantastic really made me proud! the people around us on the plane looked horrified to be sat by 4 but when we landed they said they were really good kids. Hotel great, got a fab view of Auckland bay.
We all stayed awake all day and went to bed at 6 o'clock couldnt hold out any longer! but we all slept for 14 hours!! so should feel OK for the weekend now, just want to get this swaying feeling to go away!
Catch up on e-mail in abit!
