Hello! How long does it usually take to be contacted by a recruiter? I just applied yesterday haha
For me. It took roughly 2 days. It will come soon!
Hey everyone, today is a big day.
We present to you, EAFs newest squadron , One European Squadron (1ES)
Based at LFMO, our sqaudron is based within the European mainland.
What do we fly?
The TBM-930 - A single engine turboprop capable of Intelligence, Suveillance and Reconnaissance both maritime and overland. This aircraft also performs as the Lead or Chase aircraft during Airborne firefighting operations. Our aircraft wear the French Air Force livery.
The Q400 - Operating under DRAGON callsign-- A highly maneouvrable twin turboprop aircraft used for Passenger & Cargo movements. These aircraft are able to quickly change roles due to their quick load modules. 64 passengers, during medevac ops it is capable of transporting 6 stretchers associated equipment and a full clinical team. During firefighting season, these aircraft have yet another module, our MAFFS module which allows them to drop 10,000L of retardant to help control the flames spread. Also used during Search and Rescue, our Securité Civile Q400 brings true meaning to Multi-Role.
Our C130-30J is flown in RDAF colours. Used for Cargo, Paradrops, SAR and also MAFFS. During Firefighting it carries a huge 30,000L of retardant to douse and extinguish the flame. The Hercules needs our TBM to act as a lead aircraft due to poorer maneuverability caused by its size. Our C130-30 is a new capability with several improvements in the pipeline!
We’re recruiting 2 Herc Drivers, 3 Q400 pilots and 2 TBM-930 pilots.
Nous faisons face !
