Recruiting centre's will be getting their "numbers" for position openings around the end of the month. If there are slots open for pilot in the route that you're hoping to take only then will they begin processing your application. If you get processed expect a call around March to book you in for the aptitude test. If you want info on that let me know and I'll tell you exactly what you need to know. I went in based on what they gave me in the mock exam and I ended up writing it almost blind, the real thing is nothing like the mock exam they give you.

My friend's already done his aptitude tests and everything. His file just got sent off to Ottawa for further review. And the recruiter said to call him round Jan 17th or so to check up and see if I've been processed :e-shrug:

But, I'll definitely ask you about the aptitude test when it comes time. I was told it's fairly difficult and completely random.

Video of Col. Mark Tillman, former pilot of Air Force One, talking about his experiences as the pilot of the President. His story about protecting the President during 9/11 is pretty interesting.

A video describing some of the F35's capabilities. The 180 degree turning fire and forget missile capability is pretty cool!

Those Russian jets sure look good in advertisements flying fancy maneuvers, but I'm still waiting to see them prove themselves in real-world operations. I'm sure they have great potential but until then, they are nothing more than expensive airshow demonstrations.

F22 has done plenty of simmed air-to-air combat and has destroyed pretty much everything. In one test shortly before it entered service it took out fifteen F15's without any of the F15's able to get a lock and kill shot.

Yeah, I wonder what all those people who said that whoever can make the turn to get behind the other pilot the fastest wins. Well what if the other guy (F35) doesn't even need to turn around? ROFL

Ya, he only looks to be a couple hundred feet up. Hope his chute opens... Doesn't seem to be anything wrong with the blame. I mean, it's flying straight and level haha.

Of course it's part of the show. The US Airforce has enough money in its reserves to afford to crash a $20 million fighter jet at each airshow they attend. For instance, this at the Abbotsford Airshow 2010.
