RNR after training

#1
Im thinking of joining the RN but theres a big waiting list for the job I would like to apply for which is the seaman specialist and was wondering if I joined the RNR, after training I can select what branch I would like to do.
So say if I wanted to select the pilot training for the Merlin helicopters is that possible?

Sorry about the confusion but its hard to put into words but heres attempt 2.
I would love to be a Pilot but I can only pass the RN test to be a Seaman specialist.
So im thinking If I joined the RNR can I train to be a Pilot after the training process?

The RNR offer no scheme for pilot training, in order to join as aircrew you have to be previously qualified.
