Any RSAF pilots around here?

Postby kelvinwangkewen » Mon, 24 Sep 2007 8:45 pm

Hello,

I'm new to this forum. I recently tried my luck in applying for a pilot career in the RSAF after 3 failed attempts during my NSF days. Surprisingly though, even now as a NS-man, i am still given a chance. Anyway, I'm going to be called up for the computerised test somewhere next month.

What to expect from now on? Any advice or clues on what will be the next few stages - if I make it through (from test, interviews, to trainings, eventually to attaining those shiny wings)? 8-)

P.S. Have been doing searches for the past week in this "Wide-Wide-Web", and the results I got gave me a very vague idea only. :???: Hopefully someone out here will be able to give me some good insight.

As far as I know the military would not want you to have any pre-conveyed idea of what the tests involve.
