Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Can anyone enligten me ito the approximate time scales from AFCO to BRNC at the moment? Is there quite a wait from submitting application to getting an AIB date or should I just assume 6 months?

    I'm looking at applying for Aircrew and have a presentation this Jan. So obviously I'll have to wait to do FATs first (is it a long wait? Specific RN boards? Or do the RN just tag along on the Mon and Wed sittings with the Crabs?) and if I pass then go to AIB as well - is the AIB wait quite long or just a matter of weeks post-FATs?

    Reason for asking: I need somewhere to rent.... and as most rents are min. 6 months I'm going to need a timescale in mind before commiting to a rental etc.

    Also, due to different phases carried out etc. are there Aircrew specific entry dates at BRNC?

    Yes I have searched. Yes I have used Google. Yes I have read the RN website.......

    Many thanks,

    Have you tried ringing your ACLO, assuming you do not have to sign a rental contract before 09:00 tomorrow?

    We can all give you guesses, but it depends on many, many variable factors, your ACLO is the one to speak to & even then it's only an estimate I'm afraid.
  3. Thanks N_S,

    I'm abroad.... and it's not the 7th yet so can't call. I was just asking while I was thinking about it incase anyone had an idea as I'm flat hunting and trying to organise myself.

    Wasn't expecting much TBH as it's a big stab in the dark as far as questions go, I mean, how long is a piece of string?!

    In which case:

  5. Cheers N_S...

    If anyone has info on aircrew intake dates for BRNC as well that would be very much appreciated.

    Cheers all!
  6. I sent my paperwork in June, went to FAT's in October and was given a 22 week wait for AIB o_O . Needless to say I'm still waiting!
  7. Ok, 6 months is a pretty good bet then - thanks Caz.
  8. Depends how well you do at AIB for entry date!!Its taken me 14 months, so assume 6 months as a minimum, my wait for AIB was 4 months, some people only had 4 weeks notice. It is pot luck i suppose, i think i was lucky at only waiting for 14 months.

    (that is 14 months from phoning Navy and requesting information etc to my BRNC start date.)
