Gnd,

Are you really 43 or are you using your dad's computer?

SJ Wort,

There is a difference between passing an aptitude test for a job and passing the interview or selection proceedure. You could probably pick 20 people off the street and 10 of them would pass pilot aptitude tests. Not all of them would be suitable to be employed as a pilot. This whole hang up on "officer" qualities is clouding the issue. They are the same qualities looked for by any employer recruiting for pilots. The only difference is this: In the airforce, if you display those qualities but can't find your ar*ehole with both hands, you can still be commisioned into a ground branch (or as a nav)

Cheers
