  1. Hello fellow arrsers

    I submitted an application for pilot selection and have just received a letter from Glasgow stating that my application has been refused due to my age. I have just turned 30 in the last few weeks therefor i would be near enough 31 when starting the course(if i passed selection/grading etc)

    I have been informed that i can appeal the decision but is it worth still pursuing?

    Whats the oldest you know of that has started the course?

    Thanks for any advice.

  2. Appeal if you have a time machine other than that, you're too old.
  3. Well Bill Withall was Maj Gen when he did his.
    But your too Old for a line jockey.
