    Passed OASC, now all thats left is my fam visit at Halton and something called a "308 interview" at my local AFCO. Just wondering if anyone knows the sort of questions that will get asked and what generally happens at one of these interviews.

    Thanks, Ames

    Hey there Amy, had my 308 around a week ago and honestly its nothing to worry about.
    First off we sat there for around an hour waiting for the FLight LT to call us in. When he did it was a brief 15-20min session. Basically a shortened version of the initial interview. He asked me all if my personal circumstances have changed or if ive been in trouble with the police since the initial interview.
    That was all he asked me about regarding the 'about you' side of things.
    Then he continued on to grill my RAF knowledge such as, what bases do we operate typhoons out of, the operation name of libya (ellamy, he was rather impressed
    Youll recieve a terms and conditions of service pack throught the post roughly a week before your interview, all i can say is learn the reserve service bits, and jot down anytthing that you may think will be important. It helped me greatly doing this.
    After the interview supossing your succesful, which im sure you will be you go on to sign your contract and read through all the paperwork with the Flt Lt. Took about 2hours to get ours over and done with.
    Hope this helps =)

    Had my 308 today and passed Start RTC on 23rd November.
    The interview was straight forward - asked me about if anything had changed, why i chose the RAF, what training i will do at/after halton, what aircraft would i work on. What does the reserve force mean and how does it affect me. Went over the drug misuse act etc... After that, it was the sighning of forms and so on. It lasted about 3hrs as it was 2 of us there.

    Good luck Amy on yours

    The 308 is not as bad as it sounds. As long as you read over the information you are given and know the reserve service part, the branch/trade you are going in, the training etc...then you will be fine

    Whats trade/branch are you going for?
