Royal Navy Pilot

Hi all,

Firstly, I know there are loads of threads on this but I want some answers. I am applying for pilot in august.

How hard is it to become a pilot and is there any way to prepare for FAT/CBAT?
Is it worth retaking the tests or should I go for observer/aircrewman?

Too subjective to answer. Some find it easier than others.

is there any way to prepare for FAT/CBAT?
Yes, discussed on this forum already (and others). Use your sleuthing skills.

Is it worth retaking the tests or should I go for observer/aircrewman?
What tests? If you're talking about the FATs then you'll be told what options are open to you if you don't pass them. For instance, if your maths is crap you may not have the opportunity to apply for observer instead. Best thing is just to pass the tests in the first place....I'm full of good advice.

And as such suited to be a pilot?
Huzzah :D
