Hello,

Thank you for giving for giving this info, I’m 6 ft 2 and I think my femur might be a problem, is the option to do enjjpt on the t 38 talon might be a possibility ?

Thanks
Jo

By way of an update, the extra medical (such as it was) was done via video conferencing and they will do the biometric stuff at a later date once shes up in Kingston.  Bottom line is my daughter was offered a Pilot Officer spot, which she has accepted.  So for now she's sitting in South Carolina wondering when she will have to show up at St Jean and how we will deal with the 14 day quarantine requirements when the time comes.  I guess there are many people in the same position waiting for the call to go as the Forces decide how to deal with Covid.  Anyway, all's well that ends well,  the kid done good, and good luck to her in the many steps to come!

Thanks, Well the PPL thing has taken care of itself as the USAF JROTC has cancelled due to Covid. 
We are still wondering if the Canadian Forces are proceeding with aircrew medicals under the circumstances.  Not getting any response to email enquiries from the OUTCAN team, but its possible I suppose that they really dont know what the situation is likely to be at the end of May when she is scheduled.  My greencard application is going nowhere fast under the lockdown, so the whole area of travel is a nightmare between that and the quarantine requirements, so Im hoping the medical can be postponed.

First of all, Congrats to you daughter ! Getting a pilot slot in rcaf is a lifetime success.
I just had a town hall with cmr saint jean, we got the info that preps might come in mid august in order to do a longer First year orientation program because they will not have done any military training so we will need time to adapt them to military life. They also said that all officers cadet will be in quarantined in the college for 2 weeks and that the rooms will most likely be 1 or 2 instead of 3. If there is no cases of covid 19  for upcoming weeks , cmr will start to run as normal.

Have a good summer,
jo

Hi to all,

I want to prepare for my Aircrew Selection test that would be in a few months (march 2021). I don't have a date yet but I want to be ready. Its my second time taking the test and I don't want to fail. I train on CBAT and Lumosity 1h30 every day. If you have any advice, please provide.

Thank you so much.

Hey Junker,
I also had to take it twice to pass. And I also used Lumosity (those raindrops amirite) plus other apps for mental maths, as well as some gaming cuz they told me I was low on spatial stuff. You’re doing all the work to keep sharp — now all you need is strategy for relaxing when you’re there. I brought luxury stuff for the hotel room / anything to relax the night before, and I ensured to really “reset” every time I walked out of the test sections. You’ve already done it, so you know what to expect. Being accurate is better than being fast, so relax and concentrate. Then rinse & repeat. You got this.
TLDR, remember to relax.

I came back from Aircrew Selections for Pilot on Feb 2, thankfully passed this time after failing my first attempt in Jan 2019! I'm done the medical/interview, all I have left is the CFEME medical done in Toronto. Any Pilot applicants here done that recently? I'm in Ontario only a 30 minute drive from DRDC Toronto.
