Re: Joining the RCAF at 37 years old

I got the same message as above from a recruiter. The recruiter was a Navy petty officer.

Equipment assignments are usually done within the last couple days of the PIT course (which is 2 weeks long). So the Sept. 9th class won't know what they've been assigned until Sept. 18-20.
Any word on what they were assigned for equipment?

I'm surprised it's that's high!
