The Phantom— 1968 version
Yours to fly as a Naval Officer
Surprising but true. It’s the Royal Navy that’ll have the fastest lighter in the world—fastest bar none. This is the new Phantom –coming into service in a matter of months. Top speed: Mach 2.2.
If you joined the Fleet Air Arm now and trained as a Pilot or Observer, you could soon be flying in Phantoms. Or maybe you’ll fly Buccaneers; specially designed to skim in low under radar – in and away again before the enemy knows what’s hit him.
But there’s more to your life than flying. You’re a Naval Officer—with every advantage that brings. It’s a life that carries responsibility at a young age. And brings its own rewards. Like seeing the sun set over the Pacific … skin-diving in the Caribbean . . . Making friends you’ll keep for life. Your salary? Excellent. As a married Lieutenant of 25, fully qualified as a Pilot or Observer, you can earn up to £2,300 a year.
Entry You can serve for 8 years-with tax-free gratuity or £1,750; 12 year—with tax-free gratuity of £5,000; or 16 years (or to age 38) with a pensionable commission. A number of options are open to you when fixed-wing flying is phased out in thy Royal Navy. If you’re between 17 and 26 with at least 5 G.C.E. ‘O’ levels (including Maths and English), post this coupon-today.
