Method of entry is as a General Service Officer (GSO), to complete 18 months of officer training in Canberra at RMC-D and move onto a guaranteed spot at BFTS following graduation. Shipping off in January - anyone else heading down there then?

ryano.. Did you go to PSA around June? Something about your name and location seem familiar..

Dilmah.. Can't directly comment on how much it counts as they don't say, however I got a TER (Tertiary Entry Rank.. may be called something different in other states) of 91.3.

My recommendation would just be to do as well as you can in school mate. It's a loooong road but well worth it now i'm in! (been applying since start of grade 12.. taken nearly two years to get to where I am.)

Dilmah, I agree with james9. Don't stress yourself too much. You're only 15, just try your best and it'll show. Being only 15, just focus on the next 2 years or so till you complete year 12, you'll be surprised by how quickly it'll go by and how well you do if you keep focussed. I wish I had the determination you have when I was 15. Keep it up! And remember, its not only a high UAI/TER/etc. that gets you in to ADFA, unlike other uni's, personality and traits are heavily factored in.

READY FOR IT

Your carelessness with your use of the keyboard is indicative of a state of mind which should not be mixed up in aviation. You would probably be as careless on the flight deck. Not ready!

READY FOR IT,

Donít worry about the PPRuNe spelling Nazis. I canít spell or write for shit and it has not hurt me. Unless itís changed all you have to do is write one A4 page essay on why you want to join the RAAF. Just practice that one page until you know how to spell all the words and where the punctuation goes.

Easy as!

You wonít have to write much more than an email for the first 6 years anyway. (yes I know writing skills at OTS, but that's all about formatting rather than what is actually written)

Being able to spell has nothing to do with being able to fly!

Hi Dan,

I wont be at flight screening but, if you don't mind me asking, what made your application such a lengthy process?

I completed yr 12 in 07 and applied for pilot in the ADF, completed specialized testing and was told i didnt have the right maths but had a alright TER score of 90.3 for ADFA entry. So over the last 2 years completed the correst maths and physics courses through correspondence in Perth while doing some flying (just passed my GFPT) and re-applied and have finally got through.

i understand that alot of study has to be put into going to Flight screening but could anyone be really specific with what is required? at the moment going through bases, aircraft type, roles etc. Any info would be great!!

Hey Dan,

I'm also going to the course on the 28th of November! I'm glad I've found someone else who is . In regards to the study, I guess its just as much information you can find about the Air Force in general, the job and ADFA. Also I've been reading up a lot on current affairs and operations that the Air Force is involved with. May I ask what degree you are hoping to study at ADFA?

Hey Danni
Yer thats really good i have found some1 to, Have you done much flying? hoping for Btech Aviation. What about yourself? yer i think thats a great idea going through current affairs and those type of topics also other things like "whats the difference between a leader and manager?". from what i can gather the OSB is pretty gruelling with what they throw at you, so best be prepared. haha. thanks for the reply

Hey Dan,

I've only done an hour lesson so far and am going to do a few aerobatic lessons before FSP, but that's about it. Well done on completing your GFPT . How many hours have you done to get to that stage? I was initially aiming for the BTech degree also, but changed my mind to a Science degree. Questions about leadership/being an officer would definitely be important I'd say! Are you applying for pilot in the RAAF? If so I wonder what our 3 minute speech will be on, do you think we would all get the same topic?
