Careers Advisors Get a Taste of the Air Force

Forty-eight careers advisors will get an inside view of life in the Service when they spend three days with the Royal New Zealand Air Force (RNZAF) this week.

Eating and sleeping in the mess, the trip is designed to give the high school advisors an insight into the professional opportunities and lifestyle offered by the Air Force.

The career advisors will visit RNZAF Base Ohakea (near Bulls) to see operational and support aspects of the Air Force, as well as meeting student pilots at the Flying Training Wing.

The group will then fly to RNZAF Base Woodbourne (Blenheim) in a C-130 Hercules to visit the Air Force’s training facilities.

As well as visiting the Bases, the careers advisors will be able to talk with a wide variety of Air Force personnel.

“The advisors will be able to see us at work and learn about what the Air Force does and how we do it. Most importantly they’ll be able to interact with our number one asset, our people — it’s a great opportunity,” says Director of Recruiting, Squadron Leader Shaun Sexton.
