hi complete newbie here, dont really know much about whats what and whos who, but was just wondering if anybody could answer some questions i have? Firstly, im looking at becoming a pilot in the FAA, but i heard that the RN are not taking any pilots on at the moment? is that true? if so when will they start taking them on again and does this mean i cannot even apply for that position? secondly what is the minimum eyesight/medical requirements to be a pilot in the FAA? because i heard its not as strict as it is in the RAF? Finally, if i do manage to get to the selection part of things, what should i expect? i.e what sort of things to the FAT's consist of? And what would pilots have to get to do well in the FAT's? thanks for reading and sorry to be such a bore. Cheers, Adam.
