hoping someone can give me good news on this question: A few months ago I went to OASC for the RAF, applying as a Fighter Controller or Air Traffic Officer. I failed the interview (which is a long story in itself), but passed all the aptitude tests EXCEPT pilot. In a few weeks I'm going for my FAT at Cranwell. Firstly, is it true that you now need to pass pilot as well as the observer aptitudes to be an observer (what I am applying for)? Secondly, I understand that you cannot do the aptitude tests for the RAF more than once in a year. Does this apply across services? Basically, can i still go for my FAT and onto AIB at around christmas, or do I have to wait for a year? Any information would be much appreciated.
