I am due to attend Air Corps Flying Grading in April before I start Sandhurst in May. Ive been reading all the threads left by others on the subject of preperation and what to expect and they've been pretty helpful. I'm still trying to decide on one thing though, and hoping someone can offer some advice....Is it a good idea to get a few hours practical flying training before you attend Army Flying Grading?? Some say yes as it will help you to be a little prepared on your subject, while others say no as declaring previous experience will simply make it harder to do well. Which is right?!! Also, is there anyone out there who has done Flying Grading with zero prior experience? if so how did you find it? was it harder to do with no prior experince? i.e. will I risk looking like an idiot who didnt prepare properly?!!
