    I'm looking to join the military as a pilot. Leaning towards the army as I'm more into the soldiering side of things too, but considering applying for the RAF (again) before i'm too old.

    'Preparing' by working on fitness, keeping my hand eye co ordination in check, doing well in academics and getting involved with societies/developing leadership attributes.

    I want to be a commercial airline pilot when I'm older. I'm currently doing my AS's and I want to go to University to study Aviation Technology with Pilot Studies. I want to fly commercial airline aircrafts such as 737's/747's with basic airlines to start off with like RyanAir or Jet2.com.

    Becoming a pilot is very difficult as the industry is fiercely competitive. We need things that will make us stand out in this industry where everybody is near enough the same (skills etc).

    Hi Brandon,

    As the messages above have already stated the grades you need I won't go into too much detail. I have 3 A Levels; two languages and Physics, and I also have a degree in languages. I'll be honest my grades aren't fantastic (GCSEs were mostly A*s and As but not at A Level) but Life Experience is important too and I am lucky in that respect to have such a lot of experience (compared to other people my age).
