    Hi, I'm looking for any advice and info about the RAF selection process.
    Any info would be helpful even more so if it is specific to becoming a weapons technician on the mechanical side.

    My ast is 27/04/16 and I was wondering what I should wear(female)
    Also, how long on average is it between the ast and selection interviews and then fitness/medical tests.

    Thanks in advance.

    Good choice in terms of RAF, however not as good for civvy life if you decided to leave. I would recommend LOADS of revision for the AST, as Weapons technician requires 63 (the highest score for technical trades)

    I would go dressed as you are going for an interview, when I took my AST most people wore a suit or jeans. There was one lad in trackies and he stood out like a sore thumb.

    Best of luck!
