Flying time

Hi Guys,

Just a quick question out of interest to resolve a discussion at work.

How many hours on average do the hornet pilots get once fully qualified?

If someone can break it down to normal operations/training exercises and deployments it would be much appreciated.

I know this maybe a "how long is a piece of string..." kinda question, but any helpful feedback is welcome.

FSP

Hi all,

I'm paneled for 15th July FSP at Tamworth so I'm pretty happy just to get there.

Anyway I did my psych interview and aptitude testing in February and I have the book I used to study for the tests in PDF, if anyone wants it send me a PM with your email and I'll flick it to you.

Thanks for the advice in this thread so far and to add to that I've been told to study all things about the military.

This includes history, current operations, air power stuff, what planes we fly and where theyre based etc.

Lateral recruits for FSP

Hey all,

I've been looking around for some info and came across this forum, seems to be a lot of great info. I'm an American AF officer looking into the lateral transfer program the RAAF has, does anyone know if the FSP is open to individuals such as myself?

Flight screening results

Hi,
Just wondering if they let you know how you went at flight screening after the OSB in Tamworth or later when you leave? I gather by some people stating that they got through they let you know straight away?

Sorry if this has already been asked, to many pages to look through.

Failing BFTS and 2FTS

Just wondering what happens to people that fail along the way to getting their wings?

Is their any obligation for return of service? Or do they just let you go from the ADF?

Thanks,
flying_chops

flying_chops,

I'm Army and about to start BFTS and if your Army, you can be scrubbed at any time even after you get your wings. I know guys who've been scrubbed with 2 Black Hawk flights to go.

If your SSO you're pretty much shown the door, GSO get streamed into another non-flying postion.

Not sure how RAAF and Navy work.

How much choice do you have in the matter of where you go if you do get scrubbed?

I think they try and keep you in the aviation field but in the end it's where the spots need to be filled as to where you end up.

You will do NEOC as the very first thing you do upon entering the Navy.

Offers

Nshort94

Those 48 offers. Are they coming out start of the year for RAAF or is that the entire quota for the entire year for all 3 forces combined?

Cheers

You Session

Thanks everyone for contributing to this huge thread.

I have a question, it may have been covered but i have gone through most of the pages and haven't seen it yet.

I have my You Session next week in Brisbane for direct entry Pilot and I am pre-empting a question similar to "if you are not successful for pilot entry what else would I consider". Now I am not sure how to answer a question like that.

The honest answer is that I only want to fly, my preference is with the Air force but if not successful I will look into other avenues like private lessons or uni. My lifelong dream is to fly in the airforce and not necessarily jets either, I would prefer the big stuff like C17's etc.

My issue is will this answer put me in a negative position with the recruiter because it might seem I am not dedicated to the RAAF?

My background I am currently 28, I am a qualified mechanic and am now a technical trainer.

Thanks in advance for the help.

myskyhigh, pretty sure those 48 offers are just for ADFA spots next year. last i heard its about 20 total for all 3 services DEO for the offers at the end of november, then another one sometime in april/ may next year.

Fingers crossed.

Hey there,
If anyone has completed assessment day recently, are you required to write an essay sometime during the day based on one of a few available topics/questions??
If so, does anybody know these topics/questions??

Cheers
