  1. Yea I understand where you guys are coming.
  2. It sounds to me like your trying to turn me away from the navy. Also, navy has been my first choice from the start, nobody has pushed me into it.
  3. I like what the navy does. I like the culture. I like the aircraft. I like the missions.
  4. Hello all, I'm a junior in college at a collegiate aviation program and was looking for info on joining an ANG unit(possibly Navy also). I have 3.5 GPA, about 200 hours, CFI, ME, IR, I have not taken ASTB or AFOQT yet but I have started studying(a little). Is this somewhat competitive? I have heard having prior flight experience is a huge help. Can I apply to out of state units? I assume fighter units are much more competitive than tanker/airlift. If anybody has any advice or info that'd be great.
  5. So I've been seriously considering applying for a pilot/OCS seat within one of the service branches. I've narrowed it down between the Navy, Air Force , or maybe even the air national guard. I'm currently leaning navy but having second thoughts because I've heard that don't do too much flying. Can anybody attest to this? Any advice or how to choose between these three branches?
  6. Am I allowed to take the AFOQT before I am finished with college?
  7. So I am about a year out from gradutaing college with my Aeronautical bachelors degree. 3.6 GPA. I am looking to apply to my local ANG fighter unit. I have my commercial, Instrument, CFI, couple hundred hours of Civ flight time. What should I be doing now to get the ball rolling? I assume I should start getting ready to take the AFOQT and the TBAS? I've gathered a couple of LORs so far and not really sure where to go from here. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
  8. I know that air warriors is supposed to be the forum for naval aviator questions but I could not find anything on this. I was wondering what aircraft the Navy is handing out during track selects, I assume they hand out a lot more helicopters than the AF does? Was curious how many fixed wing, non fighter aircraft that they drop or plan to drop in the next couple of years. I see that there's a big order of P-8A Poseidons for the Navy. Anyway, just weighing my options between the USAF and USN, which one might be better for a pilot slot? Thanks.
  9. Ok thanks, I don't think it will be too big of a problem for me. That's awesome, tho, how's UPT goin so far? Good luck with it.
  10. Ok thanks. Did you have any guys wash out of your UPT class because they got sick? I've been known to get sick occasionally on some aerobatic flights and what not. Just wondering how the AF handles that. Thanks.
  11. Got it! Thanks, do you have any recommended study guides for AFOQTC and TBAS? Also, did you have a lot of volunteer/extracurricular time? I also would assume that the AF is handing out a couple extra fighter slots per class because were about 1500 short on pilots. Thanks.
  12. Thanks man, good to hear some current info. Have you heard anything about people getting rotors or RPAs, I want to stay away from that crap as much as possible.(I guess I could live with rotor if it came down to it.) Also, how does the OTS selection differ from the pilot Slot selection? Is one harder than the other? Thanks. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Understood. According to the doctor and many medical websites they are very common, everybody has at least one a day, it's just that some people notice them and some don't. But I can see how this could quickly lead down a slippery slope.
  14. Hello all, I am interested in becoming a pilot for the USAF and looking to apply in the near future. I am 19 years old. I will graduate college next spring with my 4 year degree in Aviation Flight Science from Western Michigan, current GPA is about 3.5(think I can get it up to 3.7 by the end). I have my Private Pilot's License, Instrument rating, commercial license, and will soon have my multi and CFI. I have 150 hours of flight time. I have not taken TBAS or AFOQT, so I do not have a PCSM score for you guys. I have absolutely no criminal record or anything like that. I'm a healthy individual that is in decent shape. I currently hold a First class medical, I have had very infrequent heart palpitations, cardiologist said they were nothing to worry about, he said I have very healthy heart and these are normal. Would this cause any problems on getting a pilot slot? Anyway, based on this info what are my chances at getting a pilot slot? Thanks.
