For years i've been interested in SAR from both the sea and air aspect. naturally, i was a little pissed when the air corps ended search and rescue operations. it ended any realistic chance i had of becoming a SAR pilot.
but i see the AW139's are fitted with winches .... anyone know whats the story there??? are the air corps gearing up to get back into that arena, or are they there purely there for light lifting, or something?? i think i read somewhere that the helicoptor was built with maritime operations and SAR in mind, among other roles...
I'd love to find out more, anyone have any ideas???
It would be my dream job too.
However that would be like winning the lotto and picking the all the winners at the Galway races two years running.
The RAF and the RN are out too unless you are British born so scratch that too.

See here Lynx:
You can join the British military is you so wish, so long as you were born in the ROI or a commonwealth country, and in fact lots of Irish people do.
The only restriction is that women are restriced from joining front line fighting roles.
It never ceases to amaze me the 'advise' some people dish out on here....
