Good evening all! I realise this is a much discussed topic and having read various threads and gleaning some excellent information, I thought I'd post my own thread and get some advice that's more specific to me! Well, I'm currently a JNCO in the Infantry and it's all good, however, I'd really like to give a career in Aviation a shot, be that military or civilian will become clear in the next few months I would imagine! Ideally I'd like to stay in the Army and become a Pilot (NCO) in the Army Air Corps. I meet the entrance criteria, regarding rank, age and time served, as far as I'm aware? Education wise, I'm sitting on 10 GCSEs and 3 'A' Levels, I doubt that will have any bearing on an application, but I'm sure it won't be a hinderance either. I'm aware of the Apttiude and medical tests, grading and interview, although any extra Int. on those would be good too! What are the career prospects like in the Corps? Are there many Pilot NCOs compared to Officers? Is promotion course based, on merit, time served, all three?? Are the Corps looking to recruit NCOs as Pilots at the moment? Questions., questions I know!, but if anyone can give me an over view of a Pilot NCO's career/ daily life in the Corps, I'd be much obliged. Cheers folks, Skinn.
