    Air Weapons System Technician (AWS TECH)

    I was recently talking to a CF member who is based in Petawawa and he spoke about the Chinook helicopters they have there. I asked if they were equipped with flares but he was not sure. So I am wondering if they are in fact equipped with flares and if there is chance for me to be posted there...

    Personal Vaporizer / Electronic Cigarette in BMQ

    Just quit vaping before you go to BMQ. I quit cigarettes by switching to e-cigs too, but I quit using the e-cigs about 2 months ago. They're a lot worse for you than people think. Its not just water vapour you inhale/exhale. That s*** lingers almost like smoke does....next time you boil water in...

    Thanks a lot for the input everyone! Looks like I'm signing up for the course. I'm am I little disappointed to hear this.

    Hello, I've applied for AWS Technician. I am wondering if I will be able to participate in humanitarian missions (such as the one happening in Philippines) in this profession? A big part of why I am drawn to the military is to be able to help people in need (I currently do volunteer SAR). So...

    Hello, I have recently applied for AWS Tech. In the video it states that once training is completed you will be posted to CFB Cold Lake, CFB Bagotville, or 'any other base that has aircrafts with weapons'....my question is, what other bases have aircraft's that carry weapons?

    Surprisingly I am having difficulties find reliable references for my application. Currently I have 2 professional references that I have known for at least 5 years.
