FSP September 15-28

Hey all,

Very recently got the call from PSA to attend FSP on September 15th-28th.

Just thought I would get my name out there and to see if anybody else on these forums has been offered the same FSP dates.

Cheers, Alec.

Grrr Brevity

Gentlemen and ladies,

This forum is about answering questions regarding the FSP and ADF pilot applications. It already has some 2500 entries and your self congratulating comments are not helping anyone! Desist and start behaving like future pilots.

Ask intelligent questions and provide valuable guidance for others. That is it!

Nuff said.

WW

To anyone that has been on the flight screening program before, what is the day to day routine? I am not looking for insider tips and hints, but rather trying to gauge when we finish for the day so to speak, allowing us to study the book as well as maybe continue preparation for the OSB on the last day if this is possible? Thanks.

FSP Routine

Marlow,
To the best of my knowledge you'll be flying most days at least once, maybe twice. You will be expected to study in the evenings to get ready for the next days activities. It'll be busy but a good taste of what the real course will be like.

If you still need to prepare for the OSB whilst you're at the FSP then you are NOT ready for the FSP. Remember, Prior Preparation Prevents Pitifully Poor Pilot Performance.

Okay that's great, i'm glad we have our own time to read and prepare for the next day just like it would be at BFTS! Going to be such a great test of character.
I completely understand what you mean and i'll take that with me, for the majority of the time FSP is pilot time! Hopefully I find a little time among it all towards the end to just consolidate what I shall talk about and how to present myself kind of aspects for the OSB on the last day.

Thanks WW.

In addition to what winged wombat said I would advise not only studying your next sortie but your next to or three as one might be cancelled due to weather. Furthermore whilst down there you need to build a model aeroplane with the rest of your group which takes a bit of time individually. When not studying however make sure your not being a hermit. Get out there talk to people about their experiences and advise. Not sure on the routine times as im yet to go to flight screening myself, however all this information has come from someone who very recently went through the program with a recommendation.

In regards to the routine of the day, you'll be required to be at BFTS by 0800 and be able to leave at 1600.

Hey alec_taylor,

Just curious as to how long after your assessment day you got the call to attend Flight Screening?

I had a few medical things needing to be cleared up but once I was medically cleared it took about 2 weeks to get a call. It comes a lot sooner than you imagine.

Hi guys,

Long time reader. I just received a call for a spot on the 28th of September onwards for FSP. Anyone else allocated for this ADFA session?

Excited and packing death at the same time! Any words of wisdom or values of hindsight to share from those who have completed it recently?

Cheers

Do you guys know if there is a way to track how your application is going or how competitive you are to other applicants?

ToniAllssandra,

The only way would be to call DFR and ask them. Are you pre or post flight screening?

WW, acting like future pilots? What makes you think they're not?

There is a fitness assessment done at the end of the FSP phase, based on Army standards. It's just to gauge where you're at with your fitness, so if you get an offer you still have to do the pre-enlistment fitness test.
