60 ish pilots doesn't seem like a lot either! Hopefully in about 3 years they will be recruiting more! I seriously doubt the 2 though. No way would it be 2. What about all the old boys leaving? Though there has been talk of lots of holding officers scattered about but I don't see how they would cause such as backlog as to only allow 2 pilots in this year! Sorry, very unbeliveable! As for them scouting the UAS's, maybe they are useful after all!
They do cause an incredible backlog. There's probably about 30 guys holding for Valley right now for example, and with 6-8 joining the hold every 6 weeks and only 5-6 leaving it every 6-8, it builds frequently!

There's no scouting of UASs, or any such thing. Even a bursary doesn't necessarily mean you get your choice of IOT and it certainly doesn't push you ahead of any queue.

There's an annual conference for all the AFCOs every year. It gets them all together, then they have a dining-in night in the evening.
So a case of the chinese whispers happening during the course of a lot of wine sampling would you say

Depends how heavy the nav is.



They're different colours, the F3's pointier (which is what makes your jet good), and as an F3 pilot there's less planning and you get to wear a scarf.



In turn; a small one, and not a bloody lot.



To torture pilots before they get into the training system, and give weird old blunties somewhere to go to die.



I hate that phrase....!

Well, no, I don't think that sort of rumour comes out of the careers service normallty, really.... and you don't "sample" wine on a dining-in

Perhaps you should listen :rolleyes:

No faster way to make people dislike you in the RAF than to become a jumped up UAS stude with a little too much opinion of yourself... seen it happen!

Bah... Humbug!


Note the distinct lack of 'cartoons' at the end of this message.
