Hi All, I am currently serving as a WE. I have for some considerable time wanted to transfer to Pilot. I have passed my FATs for Pilot and ATC and was awaiting my date for AIB. I soon found out that the mob had stopped recruiting for the foreseeable future. I decided then to go for ATC instead, even though it was not what I really wanted to do. My date for AIB has now been booked for November. I found out today however, that pilot recruitment will reopen in april. My question is - is this true, can I go to AIB as a pilot candidate now or do I have to wait, should I just go with ATC as it has taken ages for me to get a date, or should I wait to sit AIB for pilot if I cant go now, bearing in mind that i will be at sea for deployment shortly? Any advice or answers will be greatly appreciated, Rgds Jack!
