Hi guys, I'm preparing for my sift interviews (and then later my AIB) but can't find a lot of information on the the training for the Aircrew Officer Pilot role. Could any of you help me/reccomend any links?
Thanks,

Then between grading and elementary flying training, what course does a pilot have to do? I was stumped when asked this at AIB as I did not find anything online about this.
It's not a hard question, think about what grading does, then what EFT does. Hint, flying training, doesn't always consist of flying.

Some other duties for a pilot. If you are part of a small ships flight you could be the flight commander. You would be in charge of the welfare of your personnel in the flight, their training, annual reports, admin. On a large squadron you could be designated as a flight safety officer. With regards to the course before grading that's IWOF it's a warfare officers course (lasts for 13 weeks ?) 9 at Dartmouth and 4 at collingwood. Always remember your an officer before a pilot so look at the general duties of an officer rather than just flying.

Thank you grapevine, the most concrete response I have seen!
Then you have not searched effectively as this was discussed in a previous aircrew oriented question on here to which an ex pilot replied very effectively as I did!

As I said earlier - please try harder. The search button really saves us old farts from too much repetition!!!

Ok I will, thank you.
Like what individuals on here have been saying and what I've been saying, it's all on the internet. A pilot is an officer, think about where those individuals can end up, and what qualifications they'd need to do those jobs. No point telling you the answer, be proactive.
