Septerra,

Unfortunately, that seems to be the story. These sort of things never filter out fast enough to DFR level, nrs108 and I both know people who've been told by the ranking Army officer at FSP that SSO is no longer available as of a month or two ago, effective immediately.

Hey guys, I had my final medical clearance at the end of June with my file being sent off to Tamworth soon after, but still haven't heard anything back about being put in an FSP, I know it won't be until next year now just wondering if anyone is in the same boat as me??

Lightning2Boy same with me. Medically cleared in August and no word since. Called up a few times to check in and they just mentioned it's been sent to Tamworth.

I've found working on other side projects and having a "Plan B" has been extremely beneficial in taking my mind off the uncertainty. I've been learning bucketloads about myself and developing a crazy work ethic from it. Might even hook into some more study.

All of this will look favourable to the OSB. I'm sure they'll be curious as to what applicants have been doing in the 6 - 12 months since being medically cleared and waiting for a call. If you're not going forward you're stagnating and going backwards. Always aim to improve yourself and the rest will follow

Good luck!

Hey guys,

I've spoken with one of the ladies at flight screening and she said the next round of candidates should be getting a call around the 5th of december. Hopefully some of us get some good news!

G'day everyone,

Very stoked to be able to say that I received an offer to enlist on the 10th of Feb 2017 with the RAAF.

Let me know if anyone else receives an offer.

Good luck everyone!

Hey guys!!

Just wondering if any applicants waiting for Flight Screening would like to start a "Mastermind" group. It's something I incorporate in my professional life, getting like minded individuals in the same situation as me to share information, tips and techniques on how to grow and improve towards hitting their goals. It's an amazingly powerful resource.

Obviously in this context it's to do with flight screening. Things you've been studying, techniques on those mental maths equations, resources, contacts and all that jazz. If we all live locally we could also meet and start getting to know each other as well.

I've found this forum to be invaluable for information and various contacts who have been through, are going through or are about to go through the process have been so crucial to my preparation. In fact without the assistance of other people I wouldn't even be at this stage. It's all about being humble enough to learn off other people's experiences. It's how you grow and reach that next level.

And finally, the military's always been about teamwork. We can achieve exponentially more if we all put all our heads together and help each other out towards that singular purpose. Let's aim to get everyone through.

If anyone's interested shoot me a private message. Looking for about 5 to 6 people at the most.

Therein lies the key to every successful course (be it Flight Screening or Pilots Course) that has gone before you.

Good idea, djmp92. Good luck!

Hey guys!

Long time reader, first time poster. I guess mostly because I'm down to the business end of my application now. Passed Assessment Day and my file was sent to PSF around June this year.

Got a hold of PSF a few months ago and they said I was in the middle of the pool and still competitive for a slot.

Hopefully I'll get a call up soon but the waiting game is killing me! Glad to know there's a few of us in the same boat!

Anyone have any idea when they'll release the FS Schedule for next year?

Good luck everyone!

Can't seem to be able to pm but message me and we can exchange details. Emails?
I am currently waiting for my medical to be cleared up before I can get my file sent.

Djmp92, nice initiative. Distance may prevent me from meeting many I person, but in any case I'd be happy to share a few bits and pieces collected along the way that others may find useful in their quest. Cheers.

Good luck to all of you starting down this path.

This week, a former reader and contributor to this thread has passed 2 OCU and received his first posting to an operational Hornet squadron.

The seven years from DFR to ADFA to BFTS...2FTS...79 Squadron...76 Squadron...2OCU...seem to have flashed by.

It's taken a lot of effort and commitment. So has it been worth it? 'Ken Oath! (apparently)

Well done Zulk.
