scriptox said:Well my VIE is 13 years and I'm Signals. My room mate (his trade is Pilot) has his VIE set at 15 years or something. From what I've seen here at RMC, the VIE for Pilot is typically longer than most.
This is true. Excluding university education, ( 4 years at RMC for instance) you would have to serve a period of 7 years due to the cost of training as a pilot. For most of the trades (excluding medical) the service period is normally about 5 years.
