Hi all

I have OASC coming up in a few weeks - I'm applying for Pilot. At the CBAT, my debriefing officer told me that the test had switched to the 2.4km run on a treadmill, but I can't find anywhere online with the green, light blue, and deep blue boundary times - only the ones for the old bleep test. At the moment I can run in about 10 mins flat (should be around 9.30-9.45 in a few weeks if I push myself), and just wanted to know what the cutoffs were so I have something to aim for.

Thanks


(Have already called the AFCO - the woman on the phone didn't know anything about it and thought they were still using the bleep test)

Pass (Green): 11:11 Run, 20 Pushups, 35 Situps
Good Pass (Light Blue): 10.12 Run, 40 Pushups, 41 Situps.

Assuming you are male and between aged 17-29.

I would recommend getting light blue if you can.

In fact, I may as well post the full thing.

For males, 17 - 29:

Green:
11:11 run, 20 press-ups, 35 sit-ups

Blue:
10:12 run, 40 press-ups, 41 sit-ups

Needless to say, you should be aiming for blue in all aspects.

That's fantastic, thanks. Is there no deep blue (like on the bleep test)?

No, there is no dark blue at OASC. However, purely for your own interest, the standard for dark blue equivalent is:

8.29 run, 60 press-ups, 55 sit-ups.

Very tough, but definitely doable with enough training time (and a bit of natural ability).

So is it confirmed that at this moment in time, and going forward, that it's the 2.4KM treadmill as opposed to the bleep test?

My local AFCO continue to tow the line that it's the bleep test I'll be doing in December at my OASC date.

Treadmill.

Cheers. Do you know if it's still set at 1% incline?

The OASC notes my AFCO gave me indicate that if it's the treadmill then it'll be no incline, but I know that the Life Fitness machines they use tend to auto-set to 1%.

2.4km, no incline, no rolling start. Takes about ~30 seconds to power up to 15kph so factor that in.

It may be worth noting OASC have announced that from Jan 2015 onwards, the fitness test will be the Multi-Stage Fitness Test (AKA the bleep test) rather than the 2.4km run on a treadmill....

Perhaps not pertinent to the OP, but worth announcing!
