My work experience at RAF Boulmer was by far the best experience I’ve ever had, gaining a hands on insight of the role and life of an Aerospace Battle Manager.
I was able to visit an underground bunker controlling the entire UK air space and its fighter pilots along with other aircraft. I was given the chance to command and direct my own simulated air to air battle with a hostile civilian aircraft and the well know Typhoon QRA squad.
I was even shown around and had a specialist engineer give a demonstration on how one of their main radars works.
Overall the work experience was a very valuable experience which will most definitely feature on my C.V.
