    So I'm thinking of joining the reserve next year and I want to ask if there's roles for piloting in reserve. It doesn't matter if it's a fixed wing aircraft of not, but is there roles like this for reserve?

    Also for army is there things similar, ie tank crew???

    Thanks in advance.

    If you have an A330 license, then yes. If not; no.

    There are many Driver roles, however, in both the RAF and Army.

    Yeomanry used to be silly stuff like Fox and Ferret, but now it's either WMIK type stuff or C2. So yes, you can be a tank crewman in the reserve.

    No.

    Not unless you are already qualified as a pilot with extensive commercial / military experience.

    Yeomanry units tend to have reserve tank crews so yes, although they are not limited to unit specific vehicles, yeomanry lads came out on tour with us and just learnt our vehicles during pre deployment, tank time for reserve units is limited though
