Hey there, Thought I would say a quick hello to everyone and introduce myself to the forum. I am currently an officer in the Canadian Forces awaiting flight training. I have recently began contemplating releasing and throwing my hat into the ring with the Royal Navy to be an Aircrew Pilot or (sorry-->) an officer in the British Army. I have done some research, called recruiting centres and generally assessed the situation. Joining this forum seemed a pertinent move to get some other sources of information. I get the impression that things aren`t much different across the pond. When I joined the recruiter told me over 50% of the people that walk into a Recruiting Centre want to be pilots (This is followed closely by a `spy` or a sniper.) haha. I get the idea that Aircrew Pilot positions are limited and very sought after. I have a good idea of the recruitment process but any information you have would be great. Specifically the nature of this FATS test I have heard about so much but never seem to be able to track down on the google machine. Also I was wondering about current wait times between courses (the pipeline?). I am coming up on three years service and have yet to go on a flying course. Before I post this I should mention I am a dual citizen!
