Sounds like an awesome trade.  Hope I get an Offer in the next month or so.  Being away frequently is no change from what I do now.  It will just be a change from pounding the ground for the last 15yrs to flying  ,,,cant wait :)

What's your situation? Going from reg force Inf to AES Op? How long was the OT/CT?

Awesome! Did they give you an estimate how long the wait would be? Also how many positions they are accepting per/that year?

Just discovered this trade and as someone who has had a long love of aviation, it's pretty damn appealing.

Is it possible for an AESOp to move onto pilot at some point later in his/her career with some academic upgrading?

Thanks.

PeterL,  you can apply for an OT to Pilot - different programs available if you do not have a university degree.  But like anything else,  it may not work out for you.

Thanks for the speedy response. You'll have to excuse my ignorance of CF nomenclature what but does OT stand for?

Is it possible to apply for air crew from any other trade? The reason I ask is that AESOp is closed at the moment
 and I am pondering entering as an AVN Tech or similar to reduce my downtime.

OT is Occupational Transfer,  it means changing your trade.  You can request an OT to any trade,  does not matter what your current trade is.  What matters is you meet the pre requirements for that trade,  there is openings and your current trade will let you out and any other factors.


Don't join the CF in any trade just so you can get in faster and think you can change trades once in,  as you may end up stuck in the trade you joined as for awhile.  Join the CF in a trade you think you will be happy doing for at least a few years(ie your first contract).  If the trade you want is closed,  and it is what you want then wait for it.

Hello folks,

So I'm just waiting for some final scribbles on my OT paperwork and my meeting with the BPSO but I'm wondering something. If my file does not make it back to Ottawa/review board by Novemberish this year, does that mean I will literally be waiting until roughly November 2013 or are there 'secondary' reviews held sometime in spring?

I've read a bit about this through various other means and talking with people but it seems to be a pretty mixed bag. Any insight would be appreciated! Waiting is a big game in the military so I'm definitely prepared to wait and have lots of work to do in my current trade, no boredom that's for sure!

Thanks,

PS> Since it would be rather difficult to arrange some famil flights and such in my geographic location, any chance someone could do a phone run through or email run through on what things I could encounter if I was lucky enough to get onto a flight? Reason I ask is two-fold. 1.) BPSO advised me it would make my application much more competitive had I attained famil flights / OJT of some sort. 2.) A guy whom applied from CFB Edmonton also and was recently accepted to the trade told me he arranged such visits out in BC and it helped him out quite a lot.

TB will tell you everything you need to know and you can trust him to give you an honest opinion on the good and bad aspects of life in the trade.

Airborne Electronic Sensor Operator
« Reply #419 on: January 06, 2013, 16:30:57 »
Hello Everybody,

What is life like for an Airborne Electronic Sensor Operator (AESO)? I tried searching but I only found a conversation regarding if it should be open to the public. I would love to hear about the selection process, the training process and the daily life of a AESO. What are the required traits to make you good at AESO? I have been a software/game developer for 15 years and I enjoy math and physics. I am studying electronics engineering and I am a fire fighter/medical first responder.

Thank you very much,
Ben

Its AES Op, AESOP or AESOP. 

I know the Recruiting website has it listed as an "in demand" trade, but the trade has fairly good numbers right now so I wouldn't be surprised if you found out from the CFRC they aren't recruiting AES Ops now, or until 01 Apr.

What are you talking about? Yes, the conversation I found was about should it be open to the public or not. Did you think that is the only criteria for the selection process?

I had already found both of those links but thank you for your help.

I guess, I was looking for a less specific answer. Can a civilian do the job, spec pay and all of that stuff aren't really what I was looking for. I was just wondering what the job is like and what the training is like from a high level. Like is it fun, what do you do, how often do you fly, what are the hours like, do you like your job, what kind of stuff do you do when you are flying and do you wish you picked a different trade? etc..
