POV RNAS Yeovilton

Hello all,
Will be applying to go on a Potential Officers Visit to Yeovilton soon and was wondering whether anyone had been on one of these recently at either Yeovil or Culdrose who could give an idea of the kind of stuff you get up to whilst there.

Cheers in advance.

Hi mate.

I've recently been to one at Culdrose.

Was a great few days. Activities varied from Squadron visits, some time in the simulators for both pilots and observers, a lot of talks and information to absorb which is so valuble. A crack at the fitness test and some pool survival drills as well. I think the biggest thing I got out of it was the amount of contacts with Aircrew recently out of Dartmouth as they're still pretty fresh from the application/recruitment process so they can be very helpful.

Definiely try and and get to as many of these things as possible. Visit Culrose and Yeovilton as they vary with what aircraft they have on base etc and just soak as much info as possible - as it will all help at your AIB should you get there.

I'm nearly through all of the process now so shoot me a message if you need any advice regards FATs/AIB/RT or anything!

All the best.
