The Empire Test Pilots’ School (ETPS) has been undergoing a process of modernisation, which includes the procurement of new aircraft and the introduction of a new, modernised syllabus. The changes will come into full effect from 2019 and will ensure that the training delivered is relevant to the current and future needs of the UK Armed Forces.
The application/selection process for all ETPS courses has also been updated; please refer to the Defence Instructions and Notices (DIN) 2018DIN07-043, which can be found on the publications page of the Defence intranet.
Individuals wishing to attend ETPS courses in 2019 will require the support of their Force Commander or Station Commander and candidates will be selected according to service need, provided they have the necessary qualifications and experience.
Selection Boards will not be held although the Commandant AWC reserves the right to interview candidates for their suitability.
If you have any queries regarding the new application process, please call Carolyn Garratt on 01980 664317.
