I'm currently a sophomore in college. I've wanted to be a pilot in the military since forever. I just want to here from you guys on how I've been able to set myself up so far. GPA: 3.52 Major: Aviation Flight Management PPL carrier and almost done with my instrument rating
Hi there, I was wondering what the chances are for a Marine Corps Aviator to get a jet / tailhook slot during Primary Flight Training in Naval Flight School. Does anyone know how exactly Marine Corps / Navy select their slots. I know the Air Force has one drop night where everyone gets T-38 or T-1, but I'm unsure how Naval Flight School works. I found so much info about AFROTC and how exactly flight school works in the AF, but there isin't that much information about Naval Flight School, especially about how selection works. I know that with every UPT class there are at least a few T-38 drops available. So if you want one, you can really work hard to get it. But I'm a little worried that with the Marine Corps, there may not even be jet drops, but I have no idea and there is honestly no information available. So if anyone can help me out, I would really appreciate it. Thanks guys.
I'm a Second Lieutenant in the Marine Corps and was recently informed that I will be attending IFS in Pueblo, CO followed by some school in San Antonio. Does anyone know what this process is like? Have there been many Marines that have came through this pipeline in the past? I understand what IFS is, but what is the curriculum in San Antonio geared towards? Any information on this topic would be very helpful. Thanks!
