A couple of questions =]

Hello all, new here :)

I have recently passed my PJFT, and was told it would be probably December when I go to Raleigh, unless there was a drop out then maybe I could go on a sooner date.

Are drop outs common?


Also, how long does it usually take before you are contacted with a date for basic, once you have passed the PJFT?

Any help would be great!

Thanks, Rick.

P.S. Joining as an AET if that's any more help on the situation..

Personally, I did the PJFT on the Tuesday, popped into the careers office on the way back past for a chat, got my date in the post the Wednesday.
PJFT was on June 2nd, entry date Oct 25th.
(AET too)

Thanks for the reply, so you would recommend that I go to my AFCO and ask them face to face rather than on the phone? Just don't want to be forgotten ha ha.

I was told in my interview if I passed the PJFT I would have a place for November, but on the phone after my PJFT I was told November was full and it would be December or January unless a dropout happened =/
 
I'm in a similar position i did my pjft in mid june, and was told that January was the most likely time, so im going to imagine thats when im going unless, like you said i get shifted forwards.

Also from what i've gatherd from other people you get your start date a term before so you can most likely expect a letter in September time. I stand to be corrected!

Off the back of this.

If you've been given a date, will they continually check for earlier spots should they become available, or once you accept the start date is that it job done - no chance of getting in any earlier?!

Fellow Manc!

Are you going for AET also? What is the date they gave you already?

oh I read the thread, however if you look at Guy's signature you'll see he intends to join as an ET(WE)(SM).

attention to detail cocknose, it'll matter when you're maintaining helicopters.
