Anything you need to know for the interview can be found on the official RAF sites.

What did you apply for?

Air power is not just what the aircraft are, but how and why they're used in the way that they are.

Air Power - think about what aircraft can do that soldiers on the ground or ships can't do. What range, speed of movement, different skills can a country effect with aircraft? How does that help in a conflict or humanitarian situation?

Think about the pro's and cons of the use of aircraft as a tool of government as opposed to land forces or seaborne forces.

No matter how much you know about the RAF, you still need to show your potential in order to succeed at interview. So, what did you apply for and what examples of leadership and positions of responsibility did you give?

Such a big topic, knowing the aircraft, what they’re used for as well as real examples of where it’s happened. Knowing the roles of air power is key. As well as the attributes. Knowing about both of these and the the effect when used.

Air power is a general term with a specific definition within the RAF, have a read of the linked publication quoted. You can read a lot around this and if you take some key events or operations in the history of the RAF you should be able to identify some key times where the roles and attributes are applicable in certain situations. I won’t give any examples as it’ll help with your research. The RAF website is your friend.

This is a really important document. Have a good read to keep on top of your knowledge.
