Hello. In the next year I'll be going to UCL to do a Law degree, which is completely different to being a pilot :P. However, after the degree would I be able to join the RAF to train to be a pilot? What are the entry requirements to join? How competitive is it? After my service in the RAF, would I be able to be a commercial airline pilot? Sorry for the very 'nooby' questions. Thanks!

I'd normally tell you to go and read the hundreds of other threads here about joining the RAF as a pilot as all your questions are thoroughly answered in those, but since you're the first person in a while to come around then I'll let you off
* A law degree from UCL does not prevent you from joining the RAF, so provided you meet the entry criteria, yes you can join.
* This is what is required http://www.raf.mod.uk/careers/jobs/pilot.cfm
* It is probably the most competitive ab initio job in the military
* Yes, anyone can be a commercial airline pilot irrelevant of whether they have been a military pilot beforehand.
Please read all the other threads in this forum about becoming a military pilot and also read the FAQ.
Feel free to ask any more questions not answered by the above!
