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.

ASP Prep

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,

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.
