No problem! The P2 presentation is quite pleasant. I remember a pilot applicant saying that the RAF flew F16s! They will ask you in your filter interview for the RAF about seemingly benign content from the presentation like:Thanks for the advice again MAX Went to the RAF P2 presentation yesterday and asked there about the whole CBAT/FAT's thing, she seemed pretty sure they wouldn't let me do the observer tests on the day but no harm in asking politely when I get there.
Also, forgot to ask before - which role is it you're going for? Also pilot?
- How much funding do you get per year from the RAF for study + qualifications?
- What year and month did NATO form?
- Every single week of initial officer training.
I suspect that the staff at Cranwell run the tests for all candidates (RAF, Army, Navy) throughout the week, and so you're hopefully going to be treated apolitically by those guys and they may let you sit the observer tests whilst you're there. No harm in asking, as you say. It could be a reason as simple as a software limitation that stops you from doing it.
I'm going for pilot and got my aircrew medical date yesterday. I'm hoping that all goes well with no snags and I get selected for May entry into BRNC, but I could still fail the medical and/or not be selected for May - so I'm prepared for the worst but hoping for the best. My anthropometrics, hearing, and eyesight are all good-to-go (well, at least according to my own measurements/previous examinations - how sad am I for checking these!) so I just hope I get through on the other tests. They will put you through an EEG, ECG, some spirometry tests, and extensive hearing and eyesight tests. Anyway, I'm rambling about myself. Keep us up to date with your applications and don't be afraid to ask anything else.
