    I believe there are swimming requirements for aircraft survival training course. there are some in special operations, and then in regular air force units. just listen to this. as an aerial gunner, you will get to go up and fly, but first you maintain and repair the weapons. you will not always fly, you have prove yourself on the ground before you can fly. in training you will learn to maintain, and repair and fire the weapons in flight, but when you get to your unit, you might no fly all the time. Training should not be hard. mechanical training may be a little hard. depends how mechanically inclined you are. This job is deployed a lot. you may see a lot of action you may not. depends where you are and when. its seems pretty cool, but you since you may not fly all the time is the down side. you also got too maintain the weapons , and check them before flight, so depending if you like that kind of stuff you may like this job.

    You need to contact the base career advisor. EVERY base has one. Or grab an old and grumpy MSgt from your shop, and ask him. The base career advisor will get you the right time frame when you can even cross train. There are certain windows that you can cross train in, and with you being in only 2 years, I doubt you meet the requirement. Cross training is also now all online. VMPF. Again, hit up your base career advisor.
