The best aspect is being able to work alongside a great team on board one of the most advanced aircraft in the world.

Ryan, Surveillance Aircraft Pilot

Accept the challenge and take control of some of the fastest jets in the skies, carrying out adrenaline-fuelled combat and stealth missions. Or specialise in fixed-wing aircraft and fly covert surveillance missions or transport troops and supplies.

Because the Wedgetail is a multi-crewed environment, there’s a large emphasis on teamwork, which when we’re working together is fantastic. It means we're more efficient and when we're on the ground, it's also a great way of having a support network and friends to catch up together and spend time together.
