I am pleased to announce that Ian Robson has passed his check flight, and is duly promoted to the rank of Pilot Officer, awarded his wings, and is posted to 97 Squadron for ongoing operational conversion training and operational flying.

Congratulations Ian.

Mutley, on the subject of promotions, can you change your signature block to read Pilot Officer. As far as I know there is no such rank as Flying Officer.

Pilot Officer is the rank that preceeds Flying Officer in the RAF Neil, usually for Officers that have survived basic training and are now training for their trade or speciality.
Sometimes stuff is supposed to fall off....sometimes not.
I still can't be sure which... :?

Here is the original post:

I am pleased to announce that Richard (Mutley) Keast has today passed his check flight, and is duly promoted to the rank of Pilot Officer, awarded his wings, and posted to 97 Squadron for OCU and operational flying.

I stand corrected regarding the existence of the next rank however. My apologies. Has someone promoted Mutley since then? If so, I was unaware of it.

Thanks Mutley, it is easy to get confused round here. I guess you just took a promotion as being the next step up the ladder, and overlooked the junior rank of Student Pilot. C'est la vie. All sorted now, and hopefully, if you don't wipe out on the round down too often, maybe that next step won't be too far away again.
