    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!

    Hi Voovist,

    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

    In order:

    * 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!
