    Yes, I went through 2 days of intense testing. They did everything, medical, mental physical etc.

    I was told that I performed in the top 10% of people and I was recommended for pilot.

    When I finished my VCE I sent them my study scores and was told I was not accepted becuase I got a study score of 26 instead of 27 which was required for pilot entry. :shoot2:

    NICE....

    Flame the Government if you want for lack of funding - but try to show a little respect for the guys doing the job

    :thumbs do

    I have a cousin, who until recently was a CF-18 pilot at 4-Wing Cold Lake - he's about the smartest guy I know, it takes a huge amount of dedication to get that far.

    ....and you'll never be an Air Force Pilot in either country without 20:20 vision

    Contacts are not acceptable if you're considering flight. The modern jets have enough thrust that they can literally embed the lens into your eyeball. Now wouldn't that be fun. :geek:

    If you just want to fly around and be wierd, you can get a private license like me.
    Then YOU can throw rocks at the cows and other farm animals yourself.
    Or...just go wildcatting across the country whenever all this terrorist paranoia fades...after the area of its origin is properly made flat and uninhabitable.
