Unfortunately with an ASP on the 2nd of October I'm not so sure you'll meet the cutoff to be able to get to an OSB in time before the end of the year.Good luck though!

I have been in contact with the DFR and they told me that East Sale had deliberately made a ASP for Year 12 ATAR students in October, so that people that get through are able to do OSB after ATAR Exams and before they get there ATAR score. Obviously this is just for ADFA candidates but yeah thats why I questioned on here

Hey all,
Today I received an offer for the ASP from 30 September - 3 October. Wondering if anyone else will be going during this period, if so, let me know!
All the best

Hi everyone.

I've got my ASP coming up from the 3/9 to the 6/9. In my additional testing I actually failed to meet the standard for ACO, but met the requirement for pilot. Does anyone know if my results at the ASP will override the additional testing and make me eligible for ACO, or will I have to resit the additional testing again?

If anyone else is going during the same time, feel free to send me a PM.

Cheers

Hi everyone.

I haven't been on here for a bit. Just giving you an update to see if anyone else is close to me and/or applying for the same role.

I passed my Assessment Day on 10/8/18 and I'm applying for RAAF ATC/JBAC

Just waiting for an invite to ASP now. I was told during my Defence interview it may take up to 6 months.

Anyway if anyone is in a similar boat to me, feel free to message.

Cheers

Hi all, it has been a while. Great to see so many of you getting the call up for ASP and OSBs. While my experience with the old FSP may be a bit out of date, I do wish to share a few timeless pieces of advice:
  1. Make sure to browse the full forum and get an understanding of what others have asked. There is a load of great advice in this thread.
  2. Do not buy into the sentiment that there is a "too late" to get onto an ASP/OSB. When I completed flight screening in Nov/Dec, there was an ADFA screening course going through, meaning you can sit an OSB as late as Nov/Dec depending on how the quota looks. One of my coursemates got an offer and had his appointment day within two weeks. The ADF will continually be looking to fill last minute vacancies, both internally and externally.
  3. First impressions are everything. Being well dressed is a key skill in being a junior officer. I attended all interactions with DFR in a full suit and tie, including travel to and from my FSP and OSB. While you may see this as overkill, this is a simple thing that will instantly set you above the crowd. At the very least you should wear business casual.
  4. Following from the above: Case managers have a difficult job managing large portfolios of candidates and information flows. The trick with them is to be persistent and follow up a phone call with an email. This is great professional practice which will help you become effective junior officers. Keep in mind that these forums can be monitored, and as with any social media, don't say anything that will harm your application.
As always, feel free to reply with any information or PM with any specific personal questions.

Best,
flyingsoon

ADF Pilot Medical Day

Hey all,

After reading through this forum found that there is a few of you whom have completed the ADF pilot assesment sessions/days etc. Just wondering as i start my application process very soon, from those who have completed these sessions, what should i expect for the ADF medical test (more specificaly how tight are the height restrictions, i do know what the DFR website says but i have heard many differant stories), I am very tall going on 6'5 and have been told that ill be fine height wise, but have also been told that i wont. Just need some clarification from those who have completed this,

cheers
William

The height restrictions are exactly what they say they are. Plenty of information can be found about the specifics of the specialist medicals elsewhere on this forum but expect very in depth testing and examination.

Best,

Hi Guys,

Awesome forum and has made me feel a lot more at ease but just a few questions.
I recently completed my Assessment day 22nd of August and about 2 weeks later got offered a place on the October 1st ASP, I have been informed that if the ASP goes to plan then I will do my OSB straight away while I'm there ( my ASP and OSB are both in Canberra), is there much of a difference between the ASP in Sale to Canberra.

I am incredibly nervous about potentially doing one after the other, maths is not my strongest attribute and wondering just how much of the process is weighted on maths? Is there anyone else in the same boat as me?

Thanks in Advance.

G'day LaughAtTheWorld, i am in the same boat, i had my assessment day in late July and two months later was offered a position for the asp going from the 2nd-5th of October. check out the CBAT blog, all of the tests are gone through there.

to anyone who has completed the asp are there any question relationg to fule flow rates and how to calculate increases with these as speed increases? i have been told to prepare for these but from what ive read up about these type of questions arnt on the asp.

If someone could clear this up for me it would be greatly appriciated. cheers

Hi all, Iíve just completed a YOU session and have been allowed to progress to the additional screening for direct entry pilot. Is anyone able to give me a heads up as to what the testing involves and what to expect on the day? Any input will be gratefully appreciated!

GAnoob, it is a good idea to read this thread in depth and the CBAT thread to see what to prepare for. All the information is here.

LATW, this will be a theme of your career after this. Time pressures are always a thing. I would focus on putting up good scores in the ASP as this will form the majority of your eligibility for Army (as they have 18 months to test/instill officer qualities).

Without a shred of certainty, I would suggest that the process is exactly the same for ASP in Sale and Canberra as they have to maintain a valid testing process.

Hi all,

I've just completed my ASP with the score of 53/63 which put me 4 bars above the red line of the total score. (Moderate recommendation)
I can't apply for any positions of pilot as of yet because of medical reasons which needs to be cleared up again. (it will take me a few months to get this sorted)
Considering that I only have a high school degree, what would be my best course of action now?
Has people with lower ASP scores and similar education background made it through to being a pilot before?
Any advice would be appreciated.

Seph, how long ago did you complete high school? You can go as a Direct Entry Officer as long as you meet the study requirements for maths. You could also go to ADFA which would also be a reasonable pathway. It is definitely feasible to get into a pilot role with a moderate recommendation. Good luck.

Best, fs

Forgive my apparent scepticism. Unless its changed it is not a High School degree, it's a HSC or state equivalent, unless your from overseas. Score of 53/63 is nowhere near the mark (forgive the pun). With your question on "made it through to being a pilot before", if you mean graduating from pilots course the answer is no. Timing, new selection system. If you mean being recommended for pilot than too much missing info. Most people that apply have a HSC.

Red face Last ASP session of 2018?

Hi guys,
This isn't the first time I've posted, I was one of the lucky few who managed to snag a spot on FSP46, along with thunderchief, however, I was unfortunately unsuccesful. I've been told by my coordinator that I will most likely receive an offer to attend ASP sometime in November, because apparently they wanted to wait until my OSB expired (at the end of October) to then sit me through ASP and subsequently another OSB. While I don't fully understand the reasoning behind these dynamics, my question is actually quite simple.

Does anyone know when the last session of ASP is for 2018? I'm not sure if it's because it's late and I'm burnt out but I have been unable to find any info regarding the scheduling of the sessions for this year, while I clearly remember finding it pretty easily for FSP last year. Anyone have any ideas? I'm getting a bit more worried as time passes.

Thanks in advance and also a big thank you to all of you contributors who have made this thread legendary. Your help is greatly appreciated.

I think you have been lead down the path by recruiting. There is no reason why you could not have done ASP and if successful waited for whatever time remained for your 12 months to go by for an OSB and be ready to go to an OSB right at 12 months.
I think you will find the last course are either late Nov or early Dec.
