Current Navy Pilot requirement

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. Morning,

    Is there anyone in the know who knows what the current requirement for pilots is in the RN?

    Hopefully JSF coming along with carriers etc.. has the recruitment surge started yet?

    Regards,

  2. The Royal Navy is currently short of Observers and pilots due to the lack of them making it all the way through the training pipeline. This is also due to retention as the grass is always greener. I dont know the exact figures but i do know fixed wing pilots are few and far between. But these numbers are slowly being replenished due to the current recruitment drive!

    JSF/ F-lynx is still a decade away so there will not be any influx soon.
