I hate to burst bubbles but ACS is taking over chaff and flares as well as the SAR packages.
I'm in Trenton right now and posted to 424.
If your AWS chances are your going to fighters.
That being said, my buddies that have been posted to CL seem to love it.
The high price of housing is a bit of a sting, but the cost of everything else more than makes up for it.
Also, there are more than a few guys here trying to get posted to CL!!!
Source? Because that is not what I am hearing.
I can confirm this. ACS is slated to take over chaff/flare and carts as well as SAR. If you're AWS expect to go to fighterworld. You are a weapons tech, and you will want to gain experience in fighterworld ops as they are the largest users of munitions in the RCAF. 12/13 of our QL3 went to either Bagotville or Cold Lake. One went to Greenwood due to a family health situation. I'm currently posted to
CFB 'Cool Pool' Cold Lake. I'm in barracks and its pretty decent, rooms are big and fully furnished. You have several barrack options, they are available to see on the DWAN 4 Wing website under the accomodations section. You can opt to go Full/Partial/Off rations. (Partial rations are 41 meals/month) I like the mess food. WAY better quality than Borden, and they switch up the menu so it's never boring. Rent is high, but the PMQ's did get some renovations to update them. Check CFHA for price/pics. Overall I like it here, it is a close community, people help each other out, my car insurance is cheap, no tax on groceries, lots of hunting, fishing, ATVing, ETC. I'm from BC so it's an 1 1/2 hour plane ride home to Vancouver from Edmonton (3 hour drive)
*PS* How is Trenton treating ya Boomer? Hope you are doing great man. Miss ya and your funny stories buddy!
