How long to become NCO pilot

Note: Selection could progress faster, providing your unit don't throw a hissy fit about the whole 'unit loss' issue.
Ever it was thus. My original cap badge blocked my application for a year (i.e. File 13'd the applications forms).
 
Similar circumstances for me, Original stayed in the OC's intray for a significant amount of time, dusted off my spare and sent it myself with no issues

Yep, did the same with the help of my friend when he was duty clerk and I was duty driver, then he created a job for me to drive to MW and deliver it personally. Job jobbed.
 
shift target slightly.

For various reasons (boredom at my Junior Officers' staff work mainly) I noticed a DIN that said Army MOs can become pilots. Do they do the full training, and then a frontline tour, or is it just a "gentlemen's course" where they do 6 weeks flying training, get their wings and then learn how to dispense brufen?
Apologies for the revival; do you have any further information on this or recollection of what DIN it was in?

Actually, after sharing a table with one at Yeovilton, I can.

They do a full frontline tour, then go back to MO-ing as the Army’s Aviation Specialists.

No idea how many there are at a time but there’s a steady through-put.

I’d like to flush out the age parameters and requirements to see if it would be a feasible career aspiration - I’ll see if I can find anything through MODNet.

I'd speak to the Army head of specialisation for Av Med. he's the one who'll make decisions on your selection (or otherwise).

As Alf says, the best way is to go straight to the horse's mouth. Ring the head SAM (Specialist in Aviation Medicine) at Middle Wallop. I don't have the number to hand, but I can try to find it for you if you can't.
 
He's also on LinkedIn!
