  1. Hi all

    After recently reading an article on the army intranet I have decided to submit an application for pilot selection. If i fail to meet the grade required for a pilot are there any other AAC options available to me?

    Also could anybody offer me some guidance as to what the selection process entails and any reading/training I could do before hand to ready myself for the tests.

    Thanks for any advice

  2. I take it you're currently serving? If you bomb any part of pilot selection or the course, I'm afraid you have no other options in the AAC. If you did want to transfer afterwards, you would need to go through the whole transfer process separately but the AAC ground side is pretty full at the moment. Sorry to be the giver of bad news but thats that.

    As for the process, do a quick search in the rest of the Avn forums ;)
  3. Woody,
    Check PM. Flash also has wise words.

    Thanks very much for giving a bit of your time to help me out. Going to call M-Wallop again tomorrow and start the ball rolling. I am a Cpl in the RE but quickly approaching the cut off age so need to move fast.

    Thanks again

  5. Get a move on! We need more NCO pilots.
