    I have my filter interview soon and have been studying like mad. I'm aware of what I have to know with regards to my RAF knowledge aswell as my background. However, I have also been doing so much work on current affairs, normally about 5 hours worth a day just on current affairs alone. I've heard that they grill you on current affairs but was wondering just how much detail you have to go into. Can anyone enlighten me?

    Hi,

    I've seen on other threads that 5 UK topics and 5 overseas topics are what they are looking for, as long as you can form an opinion on each one. Hope this helps.

    Try to learn literally as much as possible. When they ask you about what you know it is better to know more than you need. For example when I did mine I literally went over every single RAF base memorizing as many as I could when I finished my interview the Corporal said "To be honest your RAF knowledge is better than mine." So just go on wiki look at popular bases like the big ones such as Brize Norton, Scampton, Benson and so on. Then begin to associate Aircraft with those bases, then what role it is they play and where abouts they operate. After a while of studying you should be fine.(Do not include Halton as one you know about) Then talk about the Role of the RAF (To protect Britains airspace and overseas interests. And "TO BE A FORCE OF GOOD" I was told to make that clear too.) Anything else that you need telling about let me know
