I’ve been selected for the Pilot trade and I head out to CFLRS Jan 12 for BMOQ, anybody else with the same start date???
Looking forward to meeting you the 12th! Selected for ACSO so we might be in contact for longer than BMOQ! Too bad we do not have a facebook group like some BMOQ  groups do.

I know this question may sound sexist, but CF DOES employ a different minimum fitness standard for males and females, with the female standard being a lot more generous.

So with the 5km march wearing 35kg of gear thing in the BMO training, does it also apply differently for the female members? or will I be asked to do exactly the same as men when marching? (The kg of gear I have to wear, time limit, etc.)

It is not even close from 35kg. More like 32,5 pounds. Some female have difficulties with it, but it is the bare minimum.

Speaking from exeperience - it's the average weight a parent will carry around with a child between the ages of 2 and 8... :)

It took me almost 3 yrs to get in, and ultimately, not the trade I initially believed I wanted and failed to obtain. I wouldn't be ready to throw in the towel just yet. Get in touch with your recruiter/CFRC and ask about your options. Ask about possibly trying for another trade. If you want it, there's always a way to get it...maybe not in the manner and/or time frame you had planned, but there's always a way.

I have taken your advice to heart and, now, finally I too can say "it took me 3 years to get in" !

Trade Choice 1: Signals
Application Date: April 19, 2017
CFAT: July 31, 2017
Medical: March 1, 2018
Interview: March 1, 2018
Competition listed: Sometime in May, 2018
Position Offered: -
Enrolment: -
BMOQ: -

I originally applied for LOG DEO back in 2017. By the time I wrote the CFAT and got my files together, it was informed to be that the positions had been filled. I ended up closing my file around October only to reopen them in January (The CAF website said that they were hiring for LOG DEO again). This was an error and the positions were all filled. However, the CFRC informed me that I do not have to close my file so I kept it open and added other trades as well (ARMD and ARTY). I was chosen for further processing for the combat roles and took my medical and interview. Everything went smoothly except my VA on medical. Due to my sight, I did not meet the requirements for combat roles. By this time, the new fiscal year had started so I had placed LOG DEO as 1st choice, and SIG DEO as 2nd.

Now fast forward just a little, I had called the CFRC for an insight/opinion on my application (I asked how competitive my file is and if I had a good chance of getting a call). I was informed that my file is very competitive and that as a visible minority I may get a call due to the fact that Canada has to hire according to Employment Equity Act. I have also decided to remove LOG altogether and focus on SIG as trying to get in as a LOG DEO hasn't been working for me.

I decided to share my current progress as posts from others had helped me personally.

An update...
