Wow that was quick!
France, Germany and Spain sign a new fighter deal, and less than a week later Dassault are touting their all-French alternative.
Shades of Eurofighter?

Not to worry. The OP is in Turkey, posting questions online about Turkish National Security. He's likely been dragged off in a black Karsan van by now. :)

He could always ask the horses mouth instead of us arses on here.

Roffa, try calling Cranwell, ask for 45 Sqn WSOp Training Office and enquire about their planned output for the next few years.

Are there any DE RPAS(P) ?
Most RPAS(P) were already serving Officers in other branches AFAIK.

Added to which, they have previously let non-pilots wearing N, AE, LM, and E crossover to Pilot so...

I expect you didn't see the answer you wanted last time this was asked, so we're here again.

We mostly advised the other guy to take WSO over WSOp that time.

It's good to know as early as you can whether you have pilot aptitude or not. That way you can replan your University and Career aspirations if required. For what it's worth, I passed Tests in...

206(R) Sqn is not correct. They are still currently the Heavy Aircraft Test Sqn, AFAIK.

His election was a blip. That has got to be one of the oldest and longest held SNP seats in the country.

To be fair, Lossie had to change. The slum we inherited off the RN was awful. I seem to remember 8 (or 16?) man rooms in the Jr's block adjoining the NAAFI in the 80's, and the Sgt's mess cabins were...

Looking at the near future, I'd say ISTAR is the growth field, making it likely that the majority of WSOp trainees will stream that way rather than rotary. Both will get trained by MFTS - it's not...

I think both WSOp and WSO are under-manned at present and likely to continue that way. The amount of non-flying or flying related posts will surely reflect that. Those that are fit, able and willing...

In the 80's the WSOp recourse rate was up to 60% depending on specialisation and the overall failure rate probably about 30%.

That wont be a problem lad, since many of the countries you'll deploy to for months on end are dry.
Not to mention the current penchant for living on base instead of in a hotel :(

NCA gaining commissions from WSOp to WSO is, just like promotion, very competitive. You don't just decide,"I'd like to be an Officer now". You need a few years of "above average"" or "excellent"...
