I am along the pilot track, and have been stuck waiting for IFT/UPT dates for some time after finishing up OTS. I was lucky enough to receive a reserve slot to be a pilot, and in the beginning was really excited to start the pipeline and the journey. It's almost been three years now since I first took the TBAS/AFOQT, and while I am very happy I decided to become an officer in the Air Force, the long journey ahead as a pilot no longer excites me and is no longer the path I want to take. Part of it was hearing about all the other awesome AFSC at OTS, the other part was not thinking about the commitment to become a pilot when I was first starting out. I look back on what made me want to become a pilot and all those reasons don't help me anymore, and I always look at the negatives, and downsides to continuing.
I'm at a point where I can either, keep chugging along, unhappy, and if it isn't meant to be I will probably fail out, or I can drop out now. Dropping out now is harder because I'd be quitting, but it seems that it would be the better thing to do, so I don't waste Air Force resources in something I don't want to do. If I keep going and fail out down the line, I am just setting myself, classmates, instructors, and unit back more than I already have. I know that I took somebody's slot and was selected for a reason, and that is what makes me want to continue. Anyone have any advice?
