Firstly, Officer Selection for the Royal Navy is at the Admiralty Interview Board at HMS Sultan. The FATs (flying aptitude tests) are done at Cranwell. Finally, though....good luck.

It's actually a pretty good video, in terms of showing you the format. The computers may have changed, but the process largely hasn't.

What is it about becoming an officer that appeals to you? I would say your current standard of written English is well below the standard expected in officer applicants. Have you considered any aviation related rating roles?

god cram in lonestar, its a fecking forum not an exam paper, are you an officer??

Not yet, but I have passed the AIB and I am familiar with the standards expected of applicants. It wasn't an insult, it was a politely worded question. The OP's standard of written language in his/her posts so far is not great, before going to the lengths outlined in the post it is worth considering all the options. Have you got a problem with that?

Yes, i couldnt give a shite how any one types on this forum unless they are trying to talk like 50 cent. The fact is when tested on his english im sure he will take more care, any way who made you admiral cnut chops?

Fcuk off you tool. You come on here like you're all fcuking salty because you've passed AIB. Who the fcuk do you think you are? Get some time in and then start gobbing off on here.

With regard to the original poster- yes you need to work hard for it, but you also need to want it a lot. Smash yourself on the brain training, get yourself familiar with S/D/T and work on those hard. You've probably worked out that the road ahead is a long one- the tests at Cranwell are considerably harder than the ones in the recruit test.

What are you trying to say about ratings you stuck up twat? I am going to be rating hopefully and while I appreciate there is banter on RR that is quite literally taking the piss. How was my spelling fckface?

I am trying to say they they require a lower standard of written English to get through the application process and that if it is an aviation related role the OP is looking for then he might find one that appeals to him. Alternatively he/she can listen to people like you, spend months going to extreme lengths to address maths issues only to find that there may be other factors within the officer application process that affect him too. Quite how you can interpret that as "literally taking the piss" is a mystery to me. :roll:

Actually, I'm with lonestar on this one. The original poster has more than one hurdle to overcome if he/she/it wants to become aircrew, and going on the evidence so far, I think those hurdles may be a tad too high.

Lonestar, I'm sure you've the best intentions but it comes across a tad patronizing. The lad's just asking some questions, it's a long road to AIB and an even longer one through BRNC after...

...my two cents, do what aljh suggested, work on S/D/T (this is useful, even though it's primarily for crabs), practice writing some essays, bone up on Naval history, current vessels - don't forget the RFA or Royals! - future plans.

If you're a bit on the tubby side, start gradually upping your fitness, eat healthily. Take it from me, I used to be a 15 stone bastard (5'6"), weight CAN be lost with determination and personal application. It also looks good when your Board ask you about a time when you did something challenging.

Get some leadership experience too. Vital! They will question you about it at AIB.

How I can interpret that as taking the piss is because you have passed your AIB that somehow entitles you to offer you patronising careers advice to someone you know fckall about based on their spelling in a forum.
