hi basicly im intrested in becoming a Helicopter Pilot in the RMR, i know this specialisation exists in the regulars but as of yet i have not seen it in RMR, i was wondering if any of you could help me out with this. Also if it is possible what sort of time realistically should i expect to serve basic duties before being able to specialise. Thx

Part-time pilot?

Sounds like a good deal, are you already qualified as a helicopter pilot?

Or just looking for all the glory and bragging rights without the full time commitment?

I'd be interested to see how the original poster gets on actually. I am currently in the process of becoming a part time Submariner. Basically they fly me out to a V boat every Tuesday night, it pops up for a minute or two, I go onboard and do some Submariner shit for a couple of hours and then it pops up again and I fly home so I can be at work the next day.

As a part timer do you only get one dolphin or the full set of dolphins?

Given all the downtime that Submariners spend in hotels, I thought they were part timers anyway? Hell, they've even got a spare Watch to allow for this..!! :shock: :twisted:

I hope it's a "tuna friendly dolphin".

Good question. I think you get the special part time 'tuna' submariner badge.

The time off is essential to clear bank accounts and kick start the economy

There are dozens of Regular RM Officer helicopter pilots & at least a couple of fast jet pilots too.

The snag is that unless you are already a regular service pilot, then the odds of becoming a Reserve pilot are about as low as the maker's name on the altimeter.

All untrained RMR Commandos join as Other Ranks, but if they are academically eligible & pass Commanding Officers' interview, may undergo RMR POC & AIB after successfully completing Phase One RMR Recruit Training.

Those wishing to be pilots primarily are recommended to join as regular RN Officer Aircrew first as it's the only assured way of becoming a Pilot. Those wishing to be Royal Marines Commando Officers primarily are recommended to join as RM Officer first as it's the only assured way of becoming an RM Officer. Those wishing to be a Commando qualified pilot, are advised to join as regular RN Officer Aircrew first then hope to undergo All Arms Commando Course.

The overriding advice is to identify your primary aim, then concentrate on passing selection & training first, then set your sights on the next aspiration.
