RAF Regiment Gunner Next Steps?

#1 Post by ?Who Shot Terry Taliban? »

Ok so I have passed AST for Regiment Gunner and booked in for my selection interview in a few weeks
my AFCO is saying that I will NOT be doing the PJFT but the RAF's website says otherwise.

Any ideas on whos right?
Also shouldnt I do the health assessment before any fitness tests?

Thank you in advance.

You should come across the RAF health and medical tests before you attend the PGAC mate

Your AFCO is correct. You will have your interview, medical then have to attend PGAC instead of doing a PJFT. If you have any questions then fire away as i passed my PGAC few weeks back and start TG course on the 10th.

Excellent cheers lads I do have one other question
I am guessing the 1.5 mile will be at PGAC but is it on the same day as the 3 miler?

Thanks again in advance and good luck -luke-Rm- with the TG Course.

Thanks :D

On you PGAC you don't do a 1.5 mile run, only the 3 miler.

Little tip for you - When you do the 3 miler on pgac it is 6 times round a feild. However the PTI may feel like he wants to carry on running so do not moan or complain or stop! We ran an extra 100m and lads stopped. Because of this it really played against them when it came to the PGAC interview.

Ok so the interview went well and now I am booked in for the health assessment.

Will I have to do the pis* test there and then?
If so might be worth drinking lots of water before hand.

Cheers too all who reply.

Health assessment's on the 12th of August by the way.

Sorry to hear about that, is there nothing else you could apply for that interests you?

Do you mind me asking why you failed it?

I failed because of a heart murmur that I didnt know I had but I will have to get it checked out and all that witch will take months so may not be the end but most likley is.

Cant apply for anything else Army/RN/RM the same thing will happen when it comes to the medical.

But time will tell I guess cheers for the interest.
