Hey guys

Just wondering if anyone has heard how the new Air Corp recruits are getting on? I vaguely remember reading something in one of the Sunday papers about them and the height requirements been reduced this year does anyone know what it's down to. My younger sister is hoping to apply next year but she's not the tallest of girls and I haven't heard of any girls getting through to the final stage.

Don't know if you have grown or not since 2005 Laura but the minimum height is 5'2" (157.48cm) according to www.military.ie

Surely you could manage that? Maybe hang upside down by your feet the night before to gain the extra few cm? Or else grow an afro between now and then!
