Sat them yeserday... passed Air Traffic Controller and Observer... but just failed the pilot element... Exactly the situation I didnt want to end up in... I can resit the tests in a year... and "statistically" I'll pass apparenlty, but "statstically" I could have passed yesterday. Most people failed the lot. and the guys who want to be observers.. failed as observers but passed the pilot areas! I've been told its "quite unknown" for someone to enter as an observer and then change to pilot. It seems they're always looking for observers. but personally, my heart isnt really with it. I can resit in a year... but I'll be close to 25 and certainly wont be any sharper! was very well prepared yesterday - thanks to alot of you on here! - but at the end of the day you cant change your aptitude really. anyone been in a similar situation? any advice? How long are these results valid for? (if i was to put things on hold for a few months) I've yet to speak to my LO.
