I wanna become an astronaut and someone suggested the idea of going to the RAF as I can do flight training and do my studies. I'm going to start sixth form in September and I was wondering if they actually do A levels there and if I can still apply now and where I'm supposed to apply.
In order to jump through the several hundred big hoops of selection and training you have to want to be in the RAF, not just have half an eye on something that may be another 20 years away.
Not an easy sector to apply to, but if you’re not in you can’t win!
Believe in yourself, work hard, and as demand for astronauts increases, these requirements will decrease as I can only imagine the training will become more available. Set yourself up now with your A-Levels and see how you go. The RAF isn't the only route and as more commercial space companies recruit, there may be opportunities there too.
