You fly with a Cessna? Who pilots it? lol
Well you can't fly without one!!!!! (Unless your flying an entirely different aircraft in which case a cessna would be totally useless!!)

Ok OK, the pedantics are out in force, I actually fly in a cessna!!

Jeeeeez!!!

Hey, my name is Cal, i'm 21 from Montrose in Scotland. I finished a bachelor of science degree at the University of Manchester in June, it was in the mega fantastic subject of Geology where I learned a lot of information which I never use, mainly about rocks and stuff. Because I found my university course so interesting, I decided I would like to join the RAF. I started my application rolling in summer but I have had a much longer standing interest in the RAF. I was unsuccessful in my first filter interview but breezed it second time after beasting myself full of current affairs. I was at OASC for four days starting on the 20th of November applying for Pilot, WSO, Int and WSOp. Unfortunately I failed due to sub-standard hearing on my part. I am hoping to get the ball rolling towards another branch by the name of RAF Provost Officer in the new year.

Hey, I'm Zak, turning 16 in 5 days. I'm hoping to join RMR Bristol as soon as I turn 17 at the start of 2007, and complete phases 1A, 1B and 2 while I'm in sixth form.

If I get that far, I want to go to uni (to do Arabic and Persian) then transfer to the regular RM once my degree's finished. Note that I don't want to go for officer entry.

He may change his mond once he is in though. I personally had my heart set on officer, then when I joined the OTC it was like a year long fam visit and I felt that I didn't really want to be serving with these sort of people, not all of them, only some of them that really put me off the future officers. It may have just been my OTC but since joining the TA I have loved every minute of being a soldier, no responsibilities, no standards to set to everyone, I pretty much get away with murder. I may change my mind again but at the moment I love what I am doing at the moment

Lots of complicated reasons, but essentially I'm much happier risking my own life than ordering other people to risk theirs. I want to be part of a regiment, not one of its commanders. And I'm willing to sacrifice the extra pay for this. Despite what other people (including my friends) have said, I don't believe I'm 'wasting my education' at all. It's hard to explain actually, I just know that I want to spend my 22 years on the front line (or in training, depending on the regularity of future wars :rolleyes: ), and will be happy doing so.

Last February, I spent a weeks work experience with 32 Royal Artillery through my school - I loved it, and I don't even want to join the RA! But what I loved most was being part of a group of strongly motivated people, bonded together by what they're doing. I could feel that and felt part of it after only a few days. I also knew then that I would not be happy in the higher echelons of power.

Three port drift. I've just left the RAF after 17 years as a Hercules navigator plus other 'career' postings. I've gone back to University and found these pages while looking at my Uni site, so I've been watching what goes on in here for about 6 months. I don't have much to add about the recruitment/selection process as it was so long ago for me, but I'm happy to comment on more general 'life in the RAF' questions and I've pm'd a few when I've had specific info for them.

I'm Luke, 18. I applied last year to the Royal Corps of Signals as a Systems Engineer Technician, however my application was postponed for a year due to a tiny patch of eczema on my hand (fortunately this has now cleared). Rather than waiting around for a year I decided to go to uni first, before re-applying. Obviously having a degree will open up the Officer route but depending on how my degree goes, as i'm findin it really hard (BEng Communications Engineering) will depend on which route I go down.

I'm also in the OTC while at uni.

You're an undergraduate student undergoing military flying training on a UAS.

Your QFIs are pilots on a UAS. I wish someone had reminded me when I was 19/20 and finishing EFT to realise that I wasn't quite a pilot yet; and that 50 hours in a Tutor does not a military pilot make

Edit to add: I'm quite happy being relatively anonymous. I'm in the RAF, I'm a pilot, I used to work in recruiting, and I do my best to help people who want advice. I live with BlackHawk.
