Marine Pilots

#1
What is the possibility of becoming a pilot (rotary or fixed wing) whilst in the Royal Marines?

I know there are quite a few former bootneck pilots, but is the chances slim or is it a case of wanting it and applying for it whilst in the Marines?

I searched the forums, and couldn't find anything relevent.

Cheers

Pass the Commando course along with your YO training, go off to a Cdo Unit for a couple of years and if you are very lucky you may get a chance to try and go flying. Long hard road ahead.

well i just wanted an updated answer. i spoke to several people in the navy and said that its very hard to get into the marines as an officer, as the demand is low, however apparently it was a higher demand for navy pilots with this new carrier coming into service.

The join the FAA, go into the Jungly circuit and do the all arms course. You'll be an RN officer with a green lid working in the commando helicopter force. Done.
