Just to follow on from this. One of my flight commanders was a qualified pilot prior to joining. He was trained by Bristows but sadly had no place to go once qualified. (Pilot). He then together with his educational Quals, A levels, degree etc. apply to join the RN. However, that was all after Uni and however long Brostows pilot training was so by the time he joined up he was the better side of 24 years of age.No doubt someone with greater knowledge(not difficult I know) will correct me but should you have successfully jumped through all the necessary hoops required to be accepted as an RN pilot having a civilian licence would not fast track you and the service would require you to be trained their way to ensure there were no poor practices being employed.
I am nearly 15 now and am pretty set on joining the navy to fly helicopters. What can I do to increase my chances? Will have a private helicopter license help?
Many thanks in advance
