Military Officer and Aircrew Selection Prep Training Days £359.99
If your dream is to become a military pilot, then you will first need to pass the OASC, AIB or AOSB selection board. This group course includes training and practical assessment and is the ideal way to prepare for military pilot success.

You will receive in-depth training in all areas of your assessment, from the initial stages at the Armed Forces Careers Office (AFCO) all the way through the full selection board process at the OASC, AIB or AOSB. Here’s what your Wingman will train:

Training

Competency Training

When selecting future officers and aircrew, the military look for and assess a range of skills and qualities known as “competencies”. These competencies include items like “Leadership and Management” and “Effective Intelligence” amongst others. We will not only train you in what these competencies are, but crucially how to evidence them at all stages of the selection process.

Group Planning Exercise Techniques 

Group planning exercises are a key component of any military officer selection process. The exercise involves a fictitious scenario that you will have to resolve as a team. We will investigate the key competencies required to be successful, some frameworks to help you solve the problem.

Leadership and Leaderless Exercise Techniques

A major part of your selection board will be assessment of your competence in both a leaderless and a leadership task. Your Wingman will train you in easy to follow techniques to excel at this stage.

Interview Techniques

Whether it’s your Armed Forces Career Office (AFCO) screening interview, or your selection board interview, the Flight School Wingman techniques will help you shine on the day! You will receive in depth training with example answers.

We will ensure that you get to put all of your training to the test in some real life practical assessment! Your Wingman will put you though your paces in the following practical phases:

Practical Assessment

Group Discussion Exercise

Together, you will be presented with several short topics to discuss and debate, enhancing your communication skills.

Group Planning Exercise

Together with your team mates, you will be tasked with solving a fictitious exercise that will test your effective intelligence and communication skills to the limit! Oh, and some time/distance/speed maths too!

Leadership and Leaderless Exercises

You will all have the opportunity to put your leadership and management skills to the test in a set of fun, classroom based leadership tasks, designed to replicate the same skills required in the real selection board “hangar exercises”.

Interview

The interview forms part of the initial AFCO filtering and the full selection board process. It’s your one opportunity to evidence your motivation to join the service as both an officer and a pilot, and to let the selection board staff know a little more about you. We will help you increase your confidence for both stages.

Get Your Questions Answered

In addition to debriefs following each practical exercise, your Wingmen will be by your side to talk everything military and answer any other questions you you might have about life in the Armed Forces and as military aircrew.

All clients that choose to attend our Military Officer and Aircrew Selection Prep Days will receive a free copy of our eBook. It’s packed full of training techniques and practical examples that will form an essential part of your training with us and doubles as an essential refresher ahead of a real selection board process.*

*£39.99 non-refundable if you subsequently cancel or curtail your training.
