I want to be an officer in the Royal Air Force, logistics officer.
However, would I have the right qualities?
At school I achieved 8 GCSE's Grade A* - B and 3 A-Levels grade A - C.
I am currently a solo glider pilot and duty pilot at my club which involves the organisation and managing the smooth running of the flying on the day.
I am also a flight sergeant at my local Air Training Corps squadron with experience in management and leadership.
One possible setback however, is that I do not want to go to university, mainly because I want to work and utilize my skills in the military environment and feel as if the RAF would benefit from my skill set.
Would I be the right person or would I be better suited for an Airman role?

I'm not sure where you're going with this...
My opinion is that if you don't try, then you won't know. A lot of candidates on my IOT didn't go to uni, nor did they want to. Does that make them bad officers? No. Did it mean they had to switch on quicker to the academics and work slightly harder? Yes.

It's up to OASC to decide whether your are right for an Officer role in the RAF. The only way they can tell, and you can find out, is by applying.
Nothing wrong with anything you've written above!

No, not if you don't have self confidence.
Be confident and...... Prepare. Plan. Execute!
