BRNC February 2015 Intake

Discussion in 'Joining Up - Royal Navy Recruiting' started by Booner123, Nov 13, 2014.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Considering there is a thread specifically for people who are off to HMS Raleigh I thought I would make one for the February 2015 intake at BRNC. It may be a little early yet but anyone who has been selected can post here about what branch they are joining, training tips, worries they have etc etc, you get the gist.

    So I'll get the ball rolling and say I'll be joining in February as an observer provided I pass my imminent aircrew medical. Anyone else for the February intake then?
  2. Good idea B123. I'm Feb entry too as pilot. All pending medical and security clearance of course :)
  3. Waheyy one reply aha. I know it's early days but had visions of this thread going to the pan aha. Congrats on Pilot mate. Is your medical soon?

  6. Im sure lots more will join in over the next few weeks
  7. Yeah I'm sure, the November lot haven't even gone yet. I thought it might be a bit early with most of us only finding out this week. Best to get it up and running and then I'm sure people will come along soon enough.

  8. B123, you can't wait to be rid of us, can you? ;-)

  9. The sooner you lot go the sooner February will come round and I'll get to go as well aha. You'll no doubt by in your second term by then so I won't have gotten rid of you that easily. ;)

  10. I'm Feb entry too. Joining as a Pilot, providing medical and security clearance all goes to plan.
  11. Is Feb entry only for pilots, observers & ATC - So many FAA candidates on this!
    Nice to meet you WJG ;)
  12. Another one to rub my face in it. ;).

  13. I believe there are different selection boards for different branches. May only be the FAA candidates that have been chosen so far.

  14. That might explain it!
  15. That's correct, the selection board for Aircrew was held on the 7th November. Fortunately didn't have to wait long considering my AIB took place 4-5th Nov. How's the autobiographical account coming along?
  16. In all honesty I haven't had chance to start it yet, I work full time Thursday-Monday and I've been busy filling out the mountain of paperwork along with my medical paperwork which is another ball ache aha. Better get used to it though I suppose. That was good you not having to wait long. My AIB was the beginning of October so only about 6 weeks for me. But some people could have been waiting three months. How's your essay going?

  17. I'm in exactly the same position as you. Started making notes, but tbh there are other priorities like you say. That was my initial AIB date at the beginning of October, but I had to postpone it till November. There's 20 pilots and observers beginning in February. 26 candidates were put forward for selection in total.
  18. How do you know those figures?

  19. I start in Feb as Pilot, transfer from the Corps. Any other bootnecks going in Feb batch or other serving people?
  20. Also is that a split of 10 pilots and 10 observers then? Or they taking on more pilots because the new Merlin MK3/4's don't have observers?
