How to get the best result at your interviews:
The interviews are the most important and challenging component of the Selection Process. They are used to determine your level of motivation and whether you have the qualities to be an Officer and Pilot in the ADF. With the current standard of candidates being so high you need to ensure you are more prepared than the person sitting next to you and that is exactly what this book offers.
We have spent hundreds of hours consolidating the most important information and laid it out for you in an easy to read and study format. The Interviewing Officers expect you to learn information surrounding a variety of topics and will be actively looking for certain qualities when you sit down in front of them. This book contains all of the knowledge you need and explains the qualities that they will be searching for.
‘The book’ was written and edited by people who have been through the process themselves, been highly recommended and went on to train as pilots in their respective services. By using the tactics disclosed within, you will not only eliminate months of irrelevant study, but give yourself the best chance of receiving a high recommendation at the end of the Officer Selection Board.

Here are some testimonials from clients that have read ‘The Book – For Pilots’ before you (the names have been changed to protect the privacy of the candidates)!
Timothy – RAAF Direct Entry Pilot:
“Reading through ‘The Book’ for pilots and completing a number of phone calls with Nick, helped me ease through the assessment day with confidence in my knowledge. Each question presented by the officer on the day was unbelievably similar to the practice questions in the back of ‘The Book’.
I also took the time to complete the ‘OSB training course’. The one day course was absolutely necessary in making sure I was 100% prepared for the 2 strenuous weeks at flight screening and OSB. The course allowed me to see visible change in my interview body language, effective question answering ability, controlled verbal pace and extremely beneficial tips on how to steer away from “red flag questions”. Nick also spent hours mentoring me on how to stand out, and become an effective leader in the group activities conducted on the first day of Officer Selection Board. During my actual group activities at the OSB, I found it extremely easy to employ the strategies and procedures that Nick had taught me, to stand out, and to magnify my officer potential.
I was recommended by the Officer Selection Board for a direct entry pilot. I was told I was quite high in the selection pool and to sit tight for an offer. After a month of waiting I received an offer and am leaving for Initial Officers Course in 4 weeks. I cannot thank Nick enough for his extremely detailed, structured and user friendly courses. Without completing each ADF Mentors course for the relevant selection stage, I would have been going in blind and can see now that I most likely would not have been offered a position.
If you want a serious chance at obtaining your dream career in the Defence Force, I highly recommend any of the ADF mentors training courses”
Robert – RAAF Fast Jet Pilot:
“Having looked at the success rate to becoming a military pilot being something in the vicinity of two percent, I thought that I wouldn’t have stood a chance in an application to join the ADF, especially seeing as it was getting late in the year and I thought the likelihood of getting in was slim. However, I thought it was best to give it a go and see what happens, and I needed all the help that I could get to be able to pass the selection process. Thankfully, I came across exactly what I needed, to give me a shortcut to what I NEEDED to know, and nothing more.
“The Book” has to be one of the most comprehensive summations of everything that you need to know to become an ADF Pilot – it not only gives you information about the ADF itself, but other tips such as considering your personal motivations, and what sort of responses would raise a red flag in an interview. A lot of time can be wasted trying to search for what is quite honestly useless information, and if you’re applying late like me you want to waste as little time as possible as you are probably going to whiz through the selection process rather than if you were applying earlier like most people tend to. (It’d still be just as helpful if you were applying earlier, though!) It was an invaluable tool for getting a recommendation in both Assessment Day and the OSB. It’s no coincidence that the two people on our Flight Screening course who purchased “The Book” just happened to get a recommendation – it’s not a coincidence!
Complementing this was the over the phone tutoring sessions that came with completing the online aptitude testing as well as purchasing “The Book”. Nicholas was incredibly helpful in trying to schedule calls, especially as I was given limited notice regarding Flight Screening, and he managed to take the time out of his busy schedule to give me a 30 minute prep talk regarding the OSB and even the flying itself. I’ve never really experienced that sort of ‘customer service’, indeed I hesitate to call it as such because it was so much more – and it allowed me to realise where my true weaknesses were. It might not sound like a lot of time (believe me, it’s enough to get you sweating when you stumble on question) but it’s definitely a great way of trying to nail down any sort of shortcomings that you probably don’t even realise exist.
I highly recommend you complete the ADFmentors training packages as I am on my way to becoming a Pilot, my dream career and I couldn’t of done it without them.”
Timothy – Army GSO Pilot:
“Before attending my Assessment Day, I downloaded the ADF Mentors ‘The Book –For Pilots’. I found it was the most comprehensive book available – specific to becoming a military aviator. I eventually booked an Officer Selection Board Preparation course as I wanted to provide myself with the best chance of receiving a high recommendation. The experience and training provided by Ray and the ADFMentors team was exceptional and gave me a huge advantage over the other candidates. Thanks to their guidance over the course, I received a High Recommendation from the Officer Selection Board and I’m now awaiting a Letter of Offer. If anyone is interesting in pursuing a career as a military aviator in the Australian Defence Force, I strongly recommend taking ‘The Book’ and these courses to give yourself the best chance possible of achieving your dream.”
“I’ve just been Highly Recommended at my OSB for RMC and ADF Mentors were the guys who put me on the right track. ADFmentors and ‘The Book’ is a MUST for those who want to succeed at becoming an Officer in the Australian Defence Force.”
Peter – RAAF Fast Jet Pilot:
Great news, I have been recommended for direct entry pilot. I was told that my position in the pool is quite high, so I am absolutely stoked.
I cannot thank you enough for the time you spent mentoring me, your presentations, the book and your OSB course were pivotal in my success at flight screening. I walked into the group activities and interview with confidence and performed really well. Absolutely stoked that the board could see I was suitable for a direct entry position.”
Scott – RAAF Air Combat Officer:
“If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably spent days/weeks trawling through websites trying to find anything that will give you an edge to becoming an officer in the ADF. Let me save you the thousands of dollars and time I wasted attending other courses and programs that claim to prepare you for the OSB. ADF Mentors is the most comprehensive, specialised and accurate course there is. I was a bit hesitant at first (as you may well be), however, after the first phone call with Nick and my subsequent purchase of ‘The Book’, most of my fears were allayed.
I sat in my Assessment Day interview worrying about whether or not the content in ‘The Book’ was accurate enough and if I would be recommended. It took about 2 minutes of questioning before I realised that I knew leaps and bounds more than any other applicant and I watched as the Navy interviewer grinned, closed the clipboard, put his pen down and said “we both know you know this position like the back of your hand and that I’m going to recommend you.”, we then spent the following 15 minutes just talking about our dogs, jobs, etc.
I was blown away at how easy the interview was once I had read, learnt and practiced what was in ‘The Book’. At this point, I instantly booked in for the OSB Preparation course. At every stage throughout the process, Nick would consistently call to give advice, provide feedback and find out how things went. The course was worth every dollar and out of the 6 candidates on the day, I was the only one who received no feedback for improvement from the board president and when I was asked “how do you think you went?”, I confidently answered “I’ve done a lot of study and preparation for this, so I’m confident I did well”, to which he responded “well you’re absolutely right”. I was then recommended and received a letter of offer 1 month later.
If you still have doubts about this course, feel free to ask Nick to get you in touch with me and I’m more than happy to provide a verbal reference.
I cannot thank Nick and ADF Mentors enough for their assistance. Having under performed at school to the point where my scores did not meet the cut off to even apply for the ADF, I’m now off to Officers’ Training School for my dream career as an Air Combat Officer because of ADF Mentors.”
Rebecca – ARMY GSO Officer:
“I knew if I wanted to achieve my dream of becoming an Officer in the Australian Army, I needed to be ahead of all the other candidates applying for the Royal Military College. ADF mentors provided me with the skills and knowledge to do exactly that. I highly recommend the OSB preparation course as it provided me with valuable resources such as “The Book” and feedback and training on how to not only improve my interview and public speaking skills, but stand out at my Officer Selection Board. Before I started I couldn’t do an impromptu oral presentation to save my life, but with the encouragement, training and feedback from Nick I was able to not only confidently do an impromptu oral presentation, but get a high recommendation at my Officer Selection Board.
If a career in the Australian Defence Force is your dream, then I highly recommend ADF mentors to help you make this dream a reality!
Thank you ADFmentors!”
