Pipeline for pilots training

Hi all, I've got my sift interview next week so have been preparing all my answers but theres one that I can't seem to get in enough detail, the pipeline for a pilots training.

I'm applying as a rotary pilot so I need to focus on that part but unfortunately I've chosen to do it on a day that the Royal Navy's website is down.

Any help would be much appreciated

Remember to include the pipeline for helicopter pilots!
I am applying for pilot and i did my SIFT a few weeks ago, the interviewer will ask questions about something, for example a t23 frigate, then he/she will get more and more in deapth to discover how much you know about it.
And Dartmouth is 30 weeks, 3 terms of 10 weeks, not 10 month..
And there is grading after Dartmouth, and the hawk training is at RAF Valley :) good luck!

So the Op really has done his homework then!

So much incorrect - Erm do we still have a Harrier? I thought the Yanks bought them all for spares!

Yeah im applying as a helicopter pilot but i cant seem to find the pipeline anywhere? I've been told they ask about the course of your training in great detail ?

Haha clearly the internet has served me well as I copied and pasted the first thing I found where someone was quoting there sift interview, shame it was from 2008. So anyone know where I can find the new pipeline ?

For **** sake, took 10 minutes writing out that adress!! Haha
I cant think of any other way to find it, but when the website is back up you can find it by searching 'military aviation studies pdf' and you will find a table on page 5 that tells you what the pipelines are.

just a heads up on that pdf. the pipeline in that guide has been around for years and much has changed! i.e. fireflys are no longer used at Cranwell. Expand your research on that one fellas!
