    I would like to be either a pilot or a WSOp in the RAF, would it be worth getting a degree to help me stand out abit more? Or is it a waste of time and money? Also would I be able to apply for WSOp then later on in my career swap to a pilot? Thanks

    So it's pilot this week?

    What happened to PTI? Or ATC?


    Will a degree help you stand out? No. It'll help you be on a level playing field with most pilot applicants, it could make you look over qualified for WSOp. It's only worth doing if you want a degree, or if you ever want/need a civilian career.

    Technically, yes, you could be able to swap from WSOp to pilot, however these crossovers are rare and getting rarer. Do not join a trade if you do not want to stay in it.

    If you want to be a pilot, then apply to be a pilot and join with a degree. You're worried about wasting time and money getting a degree, but you'd waste much more time, money and effort becoming a WSOp in the vain hope of maybe becoming a pilot.
