Cheers all! will try n get on here as much as i can tell u how its goin, will be tough but well worth it in the end :) my aim is to try n do helicopter training after 4 years or so and failing that maybe applying for special observer anyone know what either are like first hand or second? i always looked toward the sas but thts way too far ahead to think about and i know special observers give quite an insight into what it would be like. but atm i am jus a nieve civvy wantin his glory ^^

Good luck mate. The drill square is fcukin massive, I remember my troop sergeant shouting "Baker, if you don't shut your mouth i'll come over there and shove my c*ck in it"
Great memories.

Concratulations to you all guys. Welcome to a exclusive Club that'll change your life forever (in a good way of course)

I did Army Pilot grading many years ago. If your thinking of applying after a few years, get some skills that put you in good stead. Brush up or stay current on the following:

Maths
Map reading (Good natural skills and the feel for a map)
Good signals/comms knowledge
Basic mechanical engineering, theory of flight, etc.
The Army organisation, ORBAT Etc. and knowledge of other arms

Good luck and enjoy Phase 1. It may seem hard, sometimes irrelevant and soul destroying, but it'll all be worth it in the end. :D
