Wheres everyone gone, this was very popular, once.

One quick question, i was told to go in to the nearest AFCO in two months time and they said that there was two forms i had to fill in. One would be the application form but whats the second form.
Thanks
Yeah, I used to see hundreds of posts a day on this thread!!

How far are you with the application? I had tons of forms to fill out!! The other one's probably the medical form.

They are pretty self explanatory and come with an information booklet.

Just asking to apply? Not the P2 or interview? They will give you as much information as you want, they are there to help. They'll give you the forms and sit down and have a chat with you about what you're interested in.

No more or less demanding than applying for any other branch of Officer. As for what is required of training, I don't know.

How long did you get for the Group Planning Test and the Individual Planning test please?
I came back from OASC last week. Group planning ex we had 20 minutes individual time to study, followed by 20 minutes discussion and 10 minutes questioning by the board. For the individual planning we had 20 minutes study time followed by approx 5 minutes questioning.

Can anyone out there fill me in on the criteria for the second part of OASC beyond the official blurb - ie how does the scoring work? are some areas more important than others? I think I did well in group exercises but messed up individual planning (missed obvious solution) and leadership (exercise was a disaster). I was told I would get some sort of communication before August and it could be up to 3 months til I get a result. frankly I can't wait that long and need some sort of clue now!

On the RAF site it says 2 A levels are needed, is it any specific subjects they are looking for? I start college in september and have choosen to study ICT,P.E and media studies , Im hoping to get A levels for all these subjects. Would these help me get into pilot entry? Also it seems alot of people are going univercity, can some one tell me in order to become a pilot do you have to go univercity?

No not really any specific subjects at A level but you do need Maths, English and a science subject at grade C or higher at GCSE level.

No subjects will directly help to enhance your ability to be a pilot, a maths based subject will help in some aspects of the selection procedure though. P.E. will hopefully increase your fitness and so helping in that area of the selection procedure at Cranwell.

You do not need to go to University to be a pilot. It is a benefit in the fact that University graduates have increased salaries, but I don't really know the figures.

If you want to go to University then it is not really essential but it helps you mature and experience life away from parents etc. Otherwise, university students have nothing over direct school entrants.

Do the general forces chat threads really need to be stickies anymore? They are posted on so often they aren't exactly going to leave the first page, plus it would give more room for factual threads of information to be posted. Opinions?

Hi people.
I know this post is not strictly RAF discussion, but I thought this would be the place to ask. I’m applying to the Navy, as an Aircrew officer, so as either a Pilot or Observer hopefully.

I have been scheduled to do my Flying Aptitude Tests at RAF Cranwell, which I believe are exactly the same as potential RAF pilots have to pass.

I have been given some basic guidance notes on the tests, but I was wondering about the difficulty of the questions, especially the maths questions, I’m relatively good at maths in general, but it would be good if someone could possibly point me towards the way the questions are put together.
I hear that it is good to practise speed/distance/time calculations, but should I be practising converting distances first, miles to kilometres etc?
The letter I have mentions solving equations, interpreting graphs, adding subtracting, multiplying, dividing etc, all things I have done before to some level, at secondary school and college, but I have no idea of the difficulty of the Aptitude questions.

Sorry this is a bit wordy, but any help from people who know about the aptitude tests, or people who have sat them, would be greatly appreciated.
