    This is exactly what I have been looking for.

    I originally applied as an airman and passed my AST but I was told aircrew is the way to go so I applied for WSOp a few days ago. I wasn't sure if the WSOp role was to be trained for the P-8 Poseidon but i'm glad it is and I can only hope I will be streamed to it.

    I also have a general question. After NCAITC and your base training for aircrew do you have a choice on what branch of WSOp and aircraft you can be streamed to or do they just stream you to what they need?
    Hello,

    in answer to your question it depends on the manning need at the time. They will try to give everyone their preferences, but it doesn't always turn out that way, but in saying that there is a large ISTAR capability gap to fill at the moment.

    Just a side note you are in the very early stages, i would get CBAT out of the way before you start thinking any further down the line.
