I submitted my application form (from newspaper) with CV by registered mail on monday. I will be following up regularily to make sure they don't loose it. I would just like to ask if someone could let me know more specifically about the next step should my application be successful. I have the following questions:

1. I've read that they contact successful applicants between May and October during the application year (this year). Is it possible that they could contact me before this window?
2. How much notice do the give you when they notify you that your application is succesful?
3. When will I have to make the trip up to Pretoria for the first time? From what I've read on this forum, my main selection will be on a date early next year. Are ther any tests prior to this date?

I'm finishing off my last subject of my Bcom Law Degree at Wits this year and cannot be more excited to finally be chasing my dream!

Thanks, would really appreciate it if someone could fill me in.

I can't speak on behalf of the SAAF, but from what others have experienced recently for pilot/nav selection:

1. Highly doubtful they'll contact you before the window period.

2. You may receive an SMS just two days prior to the requirement to report at Bosman Station (Pretoria) or the SAAF Gym opposite AFB Swartkop.

3. You'll know when to make the trip to Pretoria for pilot selections upon receipt of the said SMS.

Keep phoning the Recruitment Office to make sure they received your application and to follow up.

Good luck!

How come every time my ship comes in, I'm at the airport?
