Thanks Tayra. Does anyone know how long it usually takes them to send all of the offers out?

. I was surprised to be told there was only 10, yes 10, RAAF ADFA Pilot positions ope

I was reading a post from December 2017 which advised RAAF were offering 10 Male pilot positions at ADFA for 2018. Can someone verify if this was the case and if these numbers are indicative for the 2019 I take? Thanking contributors to help with option consideration.

Apparently all of the RAAF ADFA Pilot positions have been selected and my nephew wasn’t one of them. I was surprised to be told there was only 10, yes 10, RAAF ADFA Pilot positions open for males. I don’t know how big the intakes are now, in my day there we’re around 30. So 20 females, 10 males. (From December 2017 post)

Apologies...I didn't attach post quote correctly above...am novice to forum. Just looking for clarification on Male/ Female pilot offers for RAAF via ADFA for 2019.

thanks all

Heard of some still going out today. I think it largely depends on how quickly your local DFR can process them as to when they go out. Fingers crossed for you!

Hey mate,

I suggest you have a read back through the last couple of pages, there’s a wealth of good info in there about what to expect.

Hey Kukushka, seeing that you have completed both of your ASP and OSB, just wondering what should i expect to see at ASP with the computer tests.
Cheers

Hey all,
Recently passed my ADFA assessment day and was recommended to attend the ASP. I was wondering how long the wait period between assessment day and ASP usually takes? Contacting my case manager is difficult as numerous calls and emails have gone through with no response.

On a good note, I received a call today from DFR asking whether I want to attend the ADFA open day (where all flights/travel are covered).

Any information regarding the time period between assessment day and ASP is greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Julian

Currently looking at between 6-8 months before receiving an invitation to ASP.. At least that's what I have heard.

Cheers for the reply, do you know if it is the same waiting period for ADFA candidates going for 2019 selection? I know DEO has a long waiting gap but wasn’t sure whether it is the same for ADFA?

ASP

I'm attending my Asp in less then a week, very nervous haha. From what I've read so far some people say you must wear smart casual down however in the instructions it said pt attire to assist fitting of flight suit.
I've also read there is a 6 month wait on ASP that is in my case incorrect about a month after my assessment day i got the invite maybe less then that.

Also my case manager is 'not very helpful', i was wondering if anyone else sends emails and calls and gets no responses?
Anyone that has passed one this year able to give me a little help on what to expect, i've been lurking these forums for a little while.

Hey Goose, I don't know if Glenny ended up sending you a PM but I'll say my bit regardless. You'll want to rock up to ASP in smart casual, i.e. collared shirt and chinos/suit trousers but for the 2 days you're actually on base you'll be wearing PT gear underneath a flight suit. The smart casual is only for arriving/departing.

As for the testing itself, there's some great links posted earlier which goes into it in more detail than I could possibly hope to, but something I haven't seen mentioned so far but I feel ought to be - get a really good nights sleep and eat well in the lead up. In my opinion that'll make more of a difference than studying every detail of the testing will.

Otherwise, just do your best and you'll be fine. Good luck.

Definitely have a look at the CBAT blog, and try the app too. However, this will simply give you a bit of an idea as to what to expect. To put things in perspective, I went through the CBAT blog and familiarised myself with some of the screenshots of the test and read the descriptions. I didn't have the app, but had a play around for about 30 minutes on someone else's tablet (who had it) at the ASP. The app is good for again, just familiarising yourself with the tests (of which they are a relatively good mimic of).

I second what The Ayatollah said though; get a good night's sleep, don't stress out too much. Try to relax, make some new friends and enjoy your time down there. Being relaxed, comfortable and fresh when in the tests will do you a world of good. I ended up getting a high rec, however I think that the most important thing (for me anyways) was to just try to be in a good zone when you do the tests. Even finding a quiet space in your room, or somewhere else, where you can just chill out and get your thoughts together before entering the test room (you'll note the prayer room right next to the testing room - I was in there!). And also, very importantly, take advantage of the rest breaks in the test to stroll around, get some fresh air, and "re-zone" yourself.
