Good morning all,

I have passed my RAAF Pilot Assessment Day and have heard (unofficially) that RAAF is considering running ASPs in Canberra starting in around 3 weeks, as a result of the border closures in Victoria presently. Has anyone on this forum heard anything that could corroborate this rumour?

Cheers,

Hi Aurelius,

Can confirm that ASPs are running in Canberra (Royal Military College Duntroon). Mine was scheduled Monday 20-24th July, but postponed due to their one week notice. Was advised to expect one week notices during this challenging period.

I am currently awaiting for further instructions and have been told I will likely be in the next session scheduled in the next 2-3 weeks.

Hope that helps.

G'Day Everyone,

After combing through every single message on this forum, and a fair amount of time within DFR, I can finally say that I have completed every aspect of the recruitment process and am now awaiting a LOO for RAAF Pilot (ADFA). I was just curious if anyone knows when the next round of offers are coming out, or a rough timeframe of when to possibly expect an offer.

Cheers,

K

Thank you FinestKind.

Yes, I have.

Just to clarify my situation a little further, I sat my first ASP last year, however was not competitive enough to progress through for RAAF Pilot. I was offered a few other roles, including Navy AvWO, and attended a board for that where I got a 'High Recommendation'. Even though that sounded like a really rewarding role, after a bit of consideration I chose to decline that LOO as my dream has always been to fly fixed wing. I went through my Assessment Day again, and have just completed my ASP for the second time where I unlocked all roles. It was mentioned to me that the RAAF was able to accept my Navy OSB scores, so I am not required to attend another OSB.

I was just curious about others experiences in how long they had to wait for receiving a LOO, and also if the RAAF would possibly look unfavourably on Navy OSB scores in comparison to RAAF ones.

Cheers,

K

Hi Krab,

I completed by OSB for RAAF ADFA pilot and mission in mid-september. I passed my ASP earlier in July and was put through for all defence ADFA aviation roles but chose only to progress for RAAF.

I was notified yesterday that I would receive an offer for mission in the next week or so and possibly for pilot within the next few weeks. I assume offer rounds will then start next week and will progress for the next month or so.

Hope that helps.

G'Day Afl123,

Thanks for that info, I really appreciate it.

I actually received a Letter of Offer for RAAF Pilot a little earlier. I'd just like to thank all the contributors on this thread over the years, it has been a priceless resource for preparation! I'd also just like to take the time to tell anyone who is currently in the the DFR pipeline, and those thinking about pursuing a career in OA; have a shot. If you are motivated and driven, you will get there in the end. I was in the DFR pipeline for quite some time, and I think the most important thing is to have confidence in yourself. That's all for now. Best of Luck!

Cheers,

K

Hi Everyone,

I am wondering if anyone has yet received an offer for Air Force DEO pilot to begin Q1 next year?

Regards

Thanks for another great year of questions and feedback in this thread. As the year winds up, I'd remind everyone starting in the ADF next year to be responsible over the Christmas break - don't injure yourself or get caught doing something stupid (drink driving, breaching COVID restrictions). It is an excellent time to be joining the military aviation community and you don't want it delayed by something stupid!

I also wish all those awaiting the next step in their recruiting process the best of luck. Merry Christmas to all.

Hi Jeffo,

Have you received an offer or heard of any offers going out since posting your question? I'm also waiting to receive an offer for RAAF DEO Pilot.

Cheers

Also in the same boat, looks like January and Feb intakes are all full so they're looking to fill the remaining spots for the following months

Hi Mate

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

I missed out on the offers for Jan + Feb as well. As far as I know the next intake is in April with most of the offers going out in March, but I also know of a few offers that have already gone out for April...

Although theyíre not allowed to give exact numbers my EC told me thereís normally 5-10 spots at each OTS course for aviation (not all of which are pilot), so if some have already been issued for April Iím not particularly hopeful, but fingers crossed.

I assume the pool is filled with great candidates at the moment so we just need to wait and hope.

Anyway feel free to send me a message if you wanna get in contact 🤙🏻

Cheers mate

Hey all,

I am in the same boat waiting for RAAF DEO, did my ASP in June 2020 and OSB in October. Was waiting on med clearance which came through just before Christmas, but have heard that April intake has now been split in two, those with offers already are enlisting in March and the unfilled positions are enlisting in May. Unsure when those offers will be coming out, hopefully March.

Cheers.

Hi Krab,

Congratulations on your LOO for RAAF Pilot. I was wondering when you went to ASP for the second time round, what did you do differently in terms of study/prep that helped and did you find any useful practice tools that helped you prepare for ASP, other than the CBAT app?

Thanks Fritz

Hi everyone - I've been one of the silent visitors of the forum looking to become a DEO Pilot.

After 2 years in the pipeline (this time around - first applied 10 years ago) - I have managed to secure a spot in the May OTS intake.

Just wanted to echo what a few of the posters above have mentioned by saying thanks to everyone that contributed.

Happy to answer any questions.

Cheers - Myk.

hey dear ,
could you please guide me in ASP?
If someone doesnít reach the minimum score to clear all officer jobs , do they need to wait for 12 months to go any other lower rank or they can immediately offered with any other lower rank ?

Not too certain exactly what you are asking. If you are saying that the applicant was not recommended for officer entry due to their OSB than generally that is a 12 month wait to try again. If however you wish to than apply, straight after a non rec'd from the OSB, for entry as a Airman, Sailor or Soldier, that is a different type of entry and not required to wait.
