Griffon Helicopter type course
« on: September 06, 2011, 12:20:50 »
How long is the Griffon type course? Correct me if I'm wrong but it takes place in St Hubert?
I guess I should also mention I'm AVS.

Good day supernova,

You are correct, the griffin type course is held in St Hubert.  I believe the type course is approxiametly 3 months long.
I am sure that any AVN techs that may be on here will be able to correct me if Im wrong.

I hope this helps

The best defence of the country is the fear of the fighter. If we are strong in fighters we should probably never be attacked in force. If we are moderately strong we shall probably be attacked and the attacks will gradually be bought to a standstill. . . . If we are weak in fighter strength, the attacks will not be bought to a standstill and the productive capacity of the country will be virtually destroyed.

Bubbs25 and Supernova,

to clarify Bubbs25's response, both the AVS and AVN Griffon (note the spelling) type courses are run at 438 Sqn in St. Hubert.  The length mentioned by Bubbs25 is about right.


at what stage are you in your tech trg, i.e. are you still at CFSATE?
