How to Join the Royal Air Force Reserves

A comprehensive guide to joining the Royal Air Force through the RAF Reserves. Learn how to pass the RAF selection process from the online application form to the interview and assessments. This comprehensive RAF recruitment guide will allow you to join the RAF Reserves in 2021!

Do you think you could succeed in one of the most difficult careers around?

Have you ever dreamed about joining Britain’s elite air-based force?

A career in the RAF could be perfect for you. As an RAF Reserve you will have the opportunity to live your normal life, whilst devoting your spare-time towards the development of key skills and training needed for the RAF. They perform exactly the same activities as full-time employees, with the difference being that they work from local territory on a part-time basis. While you will still take on periods of overseas training, you will only be required to work on a full-time basis for the RAF should they summon you. For example, in the event of a war. While this may seem unlikely, you should only apply to become an RAF Reserve if you are someone who is prepared to fight for the country, should the RAF require you to do so.

The Royal Air Force Reserves Selection Process

The selection process to join the RAF Reserves will normally consist of the following elements:

Police Selection Process Stage 1 Job Application Form

Stage 1 – Online Registration and Squadron information day

The first stage of the RAF Reserves recruitment process is to register your interest and submit your application. Once in receipt of your application you will be invited to a squadron information day at your chosen squadron. The purpose of this day is for you to get the chance to ask questions to serving personnel and be able to get a taste of what like is like as a member of the RAF Reserves.

Stage 2 – The RAF Airman/Airwoman Selection Test (AST)

During the initial stages of the RAF Reserves recruitment process you will be required to sit what is called the Airman/Airwoman Selection Test, or AST as it is otherwise called. It consists of a number of different aptitude tests, which are designed to assess which careers in the RAF you are most suited to. There are many different RAF career-based opportunities available and each one requires a different level of skill. The AST consists of seven timed multiple-choice aptitude tests which are as follows:

  • A verbal reasoning test;
  • Two numerical reasoning tests;
  • A work rate test;
  • A spatial reasoning test;
  • A mechanical comprehension test;
  • An electrical comprehension test;
  • A memory test.
Police Selection Process Stage 3 Final Interview and Vetting

Stage 3 – RAF Reserves Selection Interview

After you have passed the AST you will progress to Stage 3 to sit your reserves selection interview at the Armed Forces Careers Office.

The questions that will be asked during the interview will predominantly focus on the following key areas:

  • The reasons why you want to join the RAF Reserves;
  • Your motivations for joining and the level of preparation you have carried out;
  • What you already know about the RAF, how it operates, it’s equipment, Squadrons, where it is serving right now and also it’s history;
  • Why you have chosen your particular role.

Stage 4 – Medical and fitness assessments

The next stage in the selection process is a medical and fitness test.

The medical assessment will look at your overall health, but will pay particular attention to your hearing, eyesight and BMI. You will also be asked about any previous illnesses and you will be screened for any underlying health issues which may prevent you from carrying out your role.

The RAF fitness test consists of the three following elements:

  • Push-up test;
  • Sit-up test;
  • Complete a 2.4km run.
Police Selection Process Stage 4 Fitness and Medical Tests
RAF reserves interview

Stage 5 – provisional offer of selection (acceptance interview)

The final stage of the selection process is to attend the Provisional Offer Of Selection and Acceptance Interview.

This will take place at the squadron which you have applied to. The purpose of this is to ensure that you:

  • Fully understand the terms of service to become an RAF reservist;
  • That you are fully committed to joining;
  • That you are ready to commence your basic training.

WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO JOIN THE RAF RESERVES

Working for the RAF requires technical expertise that exceeds that of other roles within the Armed Forces. The application process, therefore, is considerably harder in terms of the technical knowledge that is required. Many of the roles and careers within the RAF will require you to possess GCSEs in Maths, English and a Science- based subject. However, there are also a number of career options open to those who have no qualifications at all. Whichever path you choose, you will need to pass aptitude tests, interviews and various health and fitness assessments.

In order to progress through each stage of the RAF selection process, you must prepare fully and put in 100% effort. The most common reason for failing the Royal Air Force selection process is lack of preparation. Remember that the smallest things can make the biggest difference.

Try to imagine yourself as an RAF careers officer. What would you be looking for in potential applicants? What would stand out? Having the ability to listen to what you are being told is very important. If you are asked to attend an interview or test at a specific time or place, then make sure you turn up on time.

Careers in the RAF require people who are extremely punctual. Therefore, creating the right impression is crucial!

Royal Air Force Competencies

(CLICK EACH TAB FOR FURTHER INFORMATION)

Respect for others is extremely important in the RAF. Not only do you need to have respect for the country that you are serving, but you need to have respect for your commanding officers, subordinates, and fellow RAF personnel.

It’s important to have a sense of pride for your role. Remember that it is your duty as an RAF serviceman/woman to put other people first. Having respect for others also means having a good understanding of diversity, and a zero tolerance policy towards discrimination. Whilst working for the RAF, or anywhere for that matter, you will meet many different people from many different backgrounds. You need to be able to work with these people, respect their differences and build strong professional relationships.

Having self-respect is important. Individuals with self-respect have a great sense of dignity and integrity. In order to perform your role successfully, you need to be able to value your own professional input and attitude towards the work, and your personal life. Having self-respect means maintaining and adhering to a code of behaviour which won’t bring disrepute to your reputation, or to the RAF.

Integrity is fundamental for RAF personnel. It refers to having the ability to behave in an ethical and respectful manner, and having the courage to do the right thing in all circumstances. As an RAF serviceman, whether you are a Reserve or full-time, your colleagues need to be able to establish a level of trust and confidence in you. You must have the conviction to take what you believe is the right course of action, regardless of the consequences. By demonstrating that you are someone who will never compromise their moral integrity, you will earn the respect of the other members of your unit, and build long lasting professional relationships.

(CLICK FOR INFORMATION REGARDING THE AST)

A Verbal Reasoning Test assesses how well you can interpret written information. During this test you will have 15 minutes to answer 20 questions. Below we have included a sample verbal reasoning question, to help familiarise you with the process:

EXAMPLE QUESTION

Take a look at the following passage and then answer the questions below.

Electricity is everywhere in our homes, and plays an important part in our lives. It only takes one badly wired plug to prove just how powerful electricity is. The wires don’t even need to touch for a spark to jump and a fire to start. You should never become complacent where electricity is concerned. Just because there’s no flame, doesn’t mean there’s no fire risk. The major rule where fires are concerned is that you should not put people’s lives at risk. Get everyone out of your home and call the Fire Service.

What are the basic particles that make up an atom?

A – True

B – False

C – Impossible to say


Answer

B = false

EXPLANATION = this contradicts the passage as it states ‘you should never become complacent where electricity is concerned’. Therefore this statement would be false.

QUESTION


You should never put water on an electrical fire.

A – True

B – False

C – Impossible to say


Answer

C = impossible to say

EXPLANATION = whilst it is common sense that you shouldn’t use water to put out an electrical fire, it is not actually stated in the passage, therefore you cannot assume this to be true.

During the aptitude tests, you will be required to sit a numerical reasoning assessment. This test is used to determine how accurately you can interpret numerical information such as charts, graphs and tables. The test will also assess your ability to use fractions, decimals and different formulae. Below we have included 2 sample numerical reasoning questions, to help familiarise you with the process:

Multiply these fractions.

fractions numerical reasoning
  • Multiplying fractions is easy. Draw an arrow through the two top numbers of the fraction, draw a line through the two bottom numbers (as shown above) and then multiply – simple!
  • Sometimes the fraction can be simplified, but in the above example, the answer is already in its simplest form.

During the aptitude tests, you will be required to sit a spatial reasoning assessment. The definition of spatial reasoning is as follows:

‘The ability to interpret and make drawings from mental images and visualise movement or change in those images.’

During the test you will be confronted with a number of spatial reasoning questions. The only effective way to prepare for them is to practise as many as you can. You will find that the more questions you try, the quicker you will become at answering them. Below we have included a sample work rate question, to help familiarise you with the process.

Look closely at the following shapes, paying careful attention to the letter which is written on each side. Using the correct letters, join the 3 shapes together in order to make the shape shown below.

spatial reasoning answer options

Remember, for this type of question, you must use the letters to determine where each of the shapes will be positioned.

The letters will refer to the side of a shape, which will then need to be connected to the side of another shape which also contains that letter.

Answer = D

During the aptitude tests, you will be required to sit a work rate assessment. This form of test assesses your ability to work quickly and accurately whilst carrying out routine tasks. Below we have included a sample work rate question, to help familiarise you with the process:

Which of the answers below is an alternative code for 563?

  • How to work it out
    You will be given a code consisting of numbers, letters or symbols. Your task is to look at the 5 provided alternatives, and decide which one uses the SAME columns as the original code;
  • As you can see in the above example, 563 uses the 1st column, the 2nd column and the 3rd column (in that order).
  • So the code must use these columns in order in which they appear;
  • You can see that answer B has the same code as 563. The triangle is taken from the 1st column, the ‘F’ is taken from the 2nd column and the ‘T’ is taken from the 3rd column.

Mechanical Comprehension tests are an assessment that measures an individual’s ability to understand mechanical concepts. Below we have included a sample mechanical comprehension question, to help familiarise you with the process.

If the pulley is fixed, then the force required is equal to the weight. A simple way to work out how to calculate the force that is required, is to divide the weight by the number of sections of rope supporting it.

mechanical comprehension raf

Diagram A = there is only one section of rope supporting the weight, therefore this can be worked out by = 10 ÷ 1 = 10.
Diagram B = there are two ropes supporting the weight, therefore this can be worked out by: 10 (weight) ÷ 2 (number of ropes supporting the weight) = 5.

During the aptitude tests, you will be required to sit an Electrical Comprehension assessment. The test itself is designed to assess your ability to work with different electrical concepts.

If you struggle to understand the concepts of electrical circuits and terminology, then you may wish to purchase our Electrical Comprehension Tests guide to further aid you during this section. This guide can be obtained via www.how2become.com or www.amazon.co.uk.

Below we have included 2 sample mechanical comprehension question, to help familiarise you with the process.

QUESTION 1


Electrical power is measured in what?

A – Watts

B – Amps

C – Volts

D – Centimetres


Answer A

EXPLANATION = Electrical power is measured using watts.

QUESTION 2


The basic particles that make up an atom are what?

A – Neutrons, protons and electrons

B – Protons, neutrons and particles

C – Protons and electrons

D – Mesons, neutrons and electrons


Answer A

EXPLANATION = the three elements that make up an atom are protons, neutrons and electrons.

During the aptitude selection tests, you will be required to undertake a memory test. The test is usually in two parts. During the first part of the test you will be required to view a sequence of letters. The letters will appear on a screen for a period of time. After that time, the sequence will disappear and you will then be required to answer questions relating to that sequence.

Below we have included a sample exercise from the first part of the test, to help familiarise you with the process.

Let’s assume that the sequence of letters looks like the following. Please note that during the real test the letters may appear individually over a set period of time and not collectively as per below.

memory test

Question 1

How many letter E’s were in the sequence?

Question 2

How many letters were there in between the letter W and the letter X?

Hopefully you managed to get the questions correct. Your ability to successfully pass this test will be dependent on how good your memory is. In order to improve your ability during this test, try the following sample exercises.

Royal Air Force Reserves Interview

During the selection process, you will be required to sit a number of interviews depending on the role for which you are applying. For some of the more technical or demanding posts, you will be required to attend a specialist interview which will be held at an RAF base. These can last up to three days depending on the career. This is also an opportunity for you to see what the job is like and meet some of the people you would be expected to work with once you have passed your initial training.The first interview will be held at your local Armed Forces Careers Officer and will be undertaken with a member of the RAF recruitment team. The duration of the interview will very much depend on your responses to the questions. However, you can expect the interview to last for approximately 30 minutes. Now let’s take a look at a sample interview question. Please note that these questions are not guaranteed to be the exact ones you’ll hear during the real interview, but they are a great starting point in your preparation.

SAMPLE INTERVIEW QUESTION

Why do you want to join the RAF Reserves?

SAMPLE RESPONSE‘I have wanted to join the RAF Reserves for a couple of years now, and I have been working very hard to pass the selection process. Having studied the recruitment literature, and the RAF website, I am impressed by the professionalism and standards that the service sets for itself.I would like a career that is fulfilling, challenging and rewarding, and I believe that the RAF would provide all of these. During my research, I have spoken to serving members of the RAF Reserves and every single one of them had positive things to say about the role. The fact that I would be training in otherwise unreachable skills and furthering my education, whilst still living my normal life back at home, is just another example of why I want to join the Reserves. Over the last few years I have become more aware of my own skills and qualities, and I believe these would be very well suited to the RAF. I am someone who likes to take responsibility, and have demonstrated this on a number of occasions. For example, I was recently made Captain of my football team, a role which involves organising team trips and fixtures. I am also a good team player, and enjoy working with different groups of people who have had different experiences in their life. There is always something to learn, and I would love to be part of a service such as the RAF, where I would be continually learning new skills.I have seriously considered the implications of joining the RAF Reserves, including the impact on my personal life and my social life. I know that there is a very real chance of me being called up to serve alongside full-time troops in combat areas, and I am 100% prepared to fulfil my commitment to the service should this arise. I have the full support of my family and partner, and they have promised to help me achieve my goal of joining the RAF Reserves. While I know that the training will be hard, I am certain that I can pass with flying colours’
