  1. I certainly will! So will I still get to the officer or 2nd lieutenant rank after the schooling, if I enlist into the Langley gaurd?
  2. Please give me pricing details thanks! Pics too😊
  3. Okay my question might be a little dull but my question is genuine. I have been doing research but I am kind of stuck on a point. So my question is what are your suggestions for schools for flight training and particularly ones that offer a bachelors degree? UND, Embry Rittle, and Bridgewater is all out of my state and I don't see the point of going out of state, if I can find a college in state that would be much more affordable. Im in Virginia. Also another thing I have been researching is whether I should join first then go to college or join later out of college? And will they still pay the tution? What are my options cause I can't seem to make up my mind on this part either. Thanks for your help.

  5. Yeah I can actually kind of see why you said that lol. On a lighter note I just didn't know what terms he was talking about. But I have done that research no doubt and I have been looking as schools for flight training and degrees in that area. Do you have any advice as to which flight school to go to? What degree did you get? Thank you for all the info and Gods speed to you too fellow American!
  6. Could you please explain. I understand the familiarizing yourself part with the search engine, but the googling part is what I am having a hard time with.
  7. So where could I go to find this Undergraduate Pilot Training and also on an side note, what it like in the daily life of a fighter pilot and does Airforce pay well in that area of expertise? Also do you get much free time? Is it possible to fast track a bachelors into a 3 year program?
  8. Okay so my question is what is UPT? I have heard of OTS, ROTC, AFA but not UPT. Also I will ask you the same question as I asked the last man, what schools would you suggest I go to, to get an bachelors and what degree would you suggest I get it in? I have looked up University of North Dakota, Bridgewater, and Embry Riddle. Is there any others?
  9. Thank you for the answer, yes it is kind of discouraging that I am getting such a late start ugh. On the otherhand, knowing that I have had a hard time with math, would flight school be a good idea instead of starting out with a degree like engineering? Or would it be better just to get a mentor through the whole process and get an engineering degree? Also can I take practice tests for both tests? What schools or universities would you suggest I apply or look up for like flight training or anything aeronautical?
  10. So I am trying to become a fighter pilot in maybe the Gaurd or the reserves. I think Airforce would be the best place to go to get adjusted and then maybe transfer to the Navy later on but please correct me if I am wrong. So I am going to put some bullet points here of what I have done so far in life. First thing I will put down is background history. I was a farmer for four years when I started working for income, I then started working at a dealership for two and a half years doing a range of things from cutting up metal poles and other such things to gardening and landscaping and filling in holes with quick asphalt and leveling stones, as well as a valeigh. I went from there to college for almost a year maybe more, and I took an engineering associates degree course but failed miserably getting a C in materials class, a D in math and an F, in engineering graphics. I was still working at the dealership part-time and had a hard time keeping up with the work, but no excuses I just had a hard time with the math and EGR and with the course in general. I did do the best I could at the time and I finally had to stop because of not having the funds to continue schooling. So while I was there I went to their workforce solutions office and applied at CDS Tractor Trailer Training and I graduated with a Class A CDL and in April of 2017, I started working with Swift Transportation as a truck driver. I work there for 5 months, however due, to the fact that my trainer did not do a very good job at giving me the backs I needed to become fluent and due to that I struggled a lot with backing into spaces and a couple times in a parking lot and trailer yard had an accident and few other moving forward accidents in the yards. But other than that I did alright other than trip planning because he did not train me how to work from an atlas so that further increased my difficulty. However, I loved doing the job. From there I went to work for Lowes in Winchester, and was there for I believe a good 9 months to a year and then I resigned and I am now at the School of Discipleship where I am learning about everything from English to Systematic and Practical Theology as well as Bible Study Methods and still more to come. I major in Horse Barn and I have been learning a whole lot about caring for horses and riding though not the best yet I am working towards that. Here I am so far getting a 3.5 GPA and I just went through an ACBC Course which is a course that prepares us to be certified Biblical Counselors. Physically speaking, I am in pretty decent shape and started working out with a great friend here at school. I in November of 2018 however, injured my left knee when I ran around another friends car and hit his hitch on platform full speed trying to accomplish chores quickly. It is hard to move if I am sitting for a long period of time or if I have been bending down on it for long. I have been trying to contact the doctor to try and set up a second appointment to get it further investigated as to what to do next to help it heal properly and quickly as possible. My age is 24 and the program only goes for a year unless further prolonged by the student himself/herself, and I have considered doing a second year here; however, with that in mind, by the time I graduate my second year, I would have turned 26 and in August of my 26th year graduate because on the 27th of this month I turn 25; what I am most afraid of is since the Airforce wants you to graduate their school by age 31, that it would hurt my chances of getting in to one of their schools. So with that in mind, and I have not had any major operations on my body either, what would your advice be to someone like me, who really desires to be a fighter pilot? Do I have a going chance? Should I get a bachelors in flight? Should I start school next year in flight school or OTS and how long would the selecting for OTS selection process be? Should I give up? Is there a chance that I have been told wrong about the age limit? How also do I choose my base if I would like to fly like the new F-15x's, F-22 Raptors, or F-35s is that even a possibility? Thanks for serving our country and people and God bless and thanks for any answers you have!

  12. Got a question, what are my chances? I am a 24 year old male, decently in shape and probably could use some working out to build more muscle, I have gone to college at a local college in Virginia but didn't get the best of grades based on the fact that I am not the best in math and I would have needed a mentor for math. I was doing a engineering degree as an associates degree. I got like a C in one class, failed one, and D in the last because it was my math class. However, it was not because I did not try, I did. Right now I am in a sort of college but more like a school in that it is called the School of Discipleship and I have been getting a grade average of 3.5 last quarter. The programs duration lasts a year in length, but can be extended to a 2 year program if I desire to do so; but I sort of struggle with the thought of doing so because by the time I complete the course the second time around, I will be pretty well into my 26th year. Given the fact that the Airforce and Navy really desire that I am graduated by or in my 31st year of age, and if they want me to have a bachelors in something, it will take 4 years of study to get that bachelors, I am not sure if it would be a wise idea to continue a year more here at the School of Discipleship. All that to say this, would I be better to go another year here at school and then go to another school like OTS or AFA, or would that be a foolish thought; and I should go to another college and get a batchelors in another topic of choice? Officer Training School I hear I need the presidents approval and the govenors approval, am I wrong? I also understand that if I go to ROTC or Airforce Academy I am not assured to know which fighter jet or which airplane I will be operating, which I would prefer to know but it isnt a must, but is that correct? I definitely want this, because it would certainly be a huge benefit to me if I was an officer before I enter into service, as far as I have researched; if I am not incorrect I think upon graduation from OTS, I become a second Lieutenant, am I right? Also is there good benefits, pay/salary, holiday and vacation time in the airforce whether as active duty, part time and full time, or in the reserves? I have been a farmer, a parts deliverer for a Chrysler dealership and a parts order picker for them too as well as landscaped some, gardened some and cut metal and other little odds and ends, the a truck driver for 5 months interupted because of some incorrect training by the trainer and so I had a few hiccups on my behalf I admit but nothing that went to the police reports as far as I have been informed. So I ask again, what are my chances all this information I have disclosed, do I have a chance or not? Thanks so much for taking the time to answer this and God bless you all, thank you for your service it is much appreciated!
  13. Mr. Toro or anyone who can answer these questions, I have a question. So I am extremely interested since I was really young, in becoming a fighter pilot. I have watching videos and reading about how to prepare for school whether it is OTS/ROTC/AFA, as a person who is not strong in math and I learn a little slower, what would you say I need to do to prepare myself for the TBAS, AFOQT, and the other tests? I am nervous because I want to go the best route and yet I don't know what route to go, that is the best for me. Kind of confused if you would. I am in school and I have a GPA of 3.5, but it is a School of Discipleship and it is a one to two-year program. I am excited to start down this path. Another question is do I have to agree to a certain amount of time of active duty after I complete OTS or AFA? Or can I do National Gaurd or Reserve and be like part-time active? Is that even all that realistic for me to be thinking of? Also, how do the holidays look like for National Gaurd people? Are there prep book online I can order and prepare for all these tests? I appreciate the answers... Thank you much!
