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:

    Yep, the RN & RAF indeed have few Apache helicopter pilots.

    The best way to transfer is obviously whilst still serving as any other way is a very high risk strategy employment-wise, in these days of bouyant recruiting.

    As with most jobs, highly sought after trades are heavily oversubscribed, so you'd be advised to contact the Army firstly to see if you meet the entry standards. For civilians joining as Apache pilots, you can only join as an Army Officer (7 GCSE's & 2 A Levels) although Other Ranks can apply for aircrew, (and a commission) from within the service

    RN/RM wise, you "just" need to be recommended further service & have manning clearance to transfer. Army wise, you need to speak to determine a projected career-path.

    Another thought - if a Royal (?), why not go for aircrew first, then try for a transfer?

    Best of luck.
