    Flight Aptitude Test advice - Aircrewman

    Hi all, I am soon to be taking my FATs for Aircrewman and I’ve read all the posts on here to death but thought I’d try and get some more recent info if anybody has experienced the dreaded FATs recently?

    Competitive FATs score

    Hi all, struggling to find a definitive answer to this, maybe someone could help.. What is a good score for pilot on the FATs. I have a score of 113 (pass being 112).

    FAT's score

    Hi folks, I've recently just sat my FAT's for the Royal Navy with the aim of Pilot but unfortunately just failed. My pilot score was 106 with the pass mark being 112. The question I have is how close was I to actually passing? Is 6 marks a million miles away or did I just fail by a whisker...

    Hydographic Office Visit?

    I recently failed my FATs to become a Pilot. My second choice has always been becoming a Hydrographic Officer but I would like to see what the day to day work is like before signing up.

    Hey guys, I sat my FATs last month passing for pilot (with a score of 120) and for ATC (dunno the score) but I failed the observer section (scoring 102). I didn't know if failing for observer could create issues for pilot selection: the Naval officer at Cranwell, who knew I was applying for...

    RN Sixth Form Scholarship - My experience and FAQs

    As someone who's been awarded one of the Scholarship awards for this year, I thought it'd be a good idea to give an overview of the award and what the application process entails. I know from my own experiences and chatting to others that information on the award is scarce and it may be helpful...
