For your first tour, you could be posted to a Regional Legal Office on a major operational flying station in the UK, to our legal offices in Germany or Cyprus, to the RAF Service Complaints Team at RAF High Wycombe in Buckinghamshire or the Service Prosecuting Authority in RAF Northolt. You will work under the guidance of senior officers and receive training in order to develop both your knowledge of new areas of law and your potential as a RAF officer.
YOUR CAREER PROSPECTS
You will join the RAF as a Flight Lieutenant on an Initial Commission of 6 years. After a period of productive service, and by competitive selection or on promotion to Squadron Leader, you may be selected for your commission to be converted to a pension-earning commission of 20 years’ service or to age 40, whichever is the latter. A further extension of your commission of up to 30 years’ Service (or to age 60) is also possible, either by competitive selection or on promotion to Group Captain. Some posts within the branch become available only when appropriate experience and rank has been gained.
