I may have been in the control room for a matter of a few months but I’m already considering an application for a move.
I’ve already seen the job I want which will do me nicely to see out the rest of my service.
I’ve always fancied being one of those chopper coppers, flying around all day chasing bad guys, getting loads of credit and no paperwork. Plus you get to be on TV all the time. Sadly, such positions are dead-man’s shoes and I’ve got more chance of getting hit on the back of the head by a zeppelin than getting selcted for the Air Support Unit. Instead, I want to be the force’s new Remote Control Helicopter Pilot.
Flying a remote control helicopter and spying on everyone seems almost as much fun. I could never afford a remote control aircraft of my own so this sounds like an ideal compromise. I think getting in early doors on the unit has to be a good thing, just right for a hand in developing the unit, I could even get to write some policies.
