Hello everyone,
As a lot of you are probably aware, the role of pilot has been closed for the time being. I applied for Pilot early January, and was informed recently that I had been moved to my second role choice of WSO. Consequently, I withdrew my application, as the role of Pilot is something I have worked towards all of my life and therefore something i am prepared to be patient with until the role re-opens.

Wondering if anyone is in the same situation as me, and if anyone has heard any news regarding the role reopening in the near future?

Hi there. I am in a similar position but I was originally going to apply for the role of RPAS pilot but was informed they are no longer recruiting so applied for the role of WSO. When you say you applied in early January I assume you mean January 2021?

If it's closed now, chances are it's closed for the remainder of this financial year.

Re Pilot roles, the RN closed applications for Pilot in November, with the intention of reviewing the situation at Easter, which fits in with what Drewski has said re RAF Pilot applications.

Whether Easter will see the role become open again is another thing; there were massive numbers of applications for the role last year, many from commercial pilots whose jobs had vanished when airlines had to make drastic cutbacks as a result of the pandemic.

Apologies, but yes, January 2021. I was invited to apply from that month but as of the current climate we are in, the application closed as soon as I applied. How about you, when did you apply?

Thank you - I also heard that from a buddy of mine who is waiting for his MIOT this coming Easter. Guessing we will have to sit and wait patiently then.

Roger, I was offered to attend the P2 presentation for the WSO role, but i withdrew my application. At least they are still recruiting for the WSO role. Is that something you are keen to go for?

Are you referring to the virtual job event where you attend the P2 presentation? And yes I am very keen to go for the WSO as it would have been my second choice if I had ended up applying for the role of RPAS pilot.

I don't believe so, i think it was a P2 presentation at my local AFCO centre i would attend on an online call - correct me if that is what you were talking about. Nice, WSO looks brilliant. Do you think you will wait until RPAS applications reopen, or consider applying for your second option now?

Update.

The 'Not Currently Open For Applications' tag has been taken off the Pilot page on the RN website.
