pilot course and commissioning

Discussion in 'Join the Army - Regular Officer Recruiting' started by Knowlesy, Apr 28, 2010.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I'm going in as a musician (audition passed) and i'm looking forward to improving my music playing

    however i just feel like while i'm in the army I'd like to try something new (because i've done music for a while) and i saw on the website that the army air corps take people from different corps and regiments and offers them the chance to rebadge and gain a commission (granted they pass the selection and medical etc)

    and when my dad served he said that the best officers he came across were soldiers first

    my question is do they take many people from other corps or do they prefer direct entries? and if they do tak existing soldiers is it first come first serve or do they look at all apps, any info on this at all would be great

    thank you :)
  2. Everything you say in your post is possible.

    If you want to be a pilot why not join as a pilot?
  3. You might be better off posting this in the Aviation section where those closer to the truth can give you advice :)
