Ok.

Why haven't you gone AWOL and blown up the Kaaba in Mecca?

You do realize that within 25 years, Muslims will gain control of the nuclear weapons in France and the UK? Their lack of self-preservation instinct means they WILL use them.

Blowing up the Kaaba is the only way to kill political correctness via the ensuing chimpout and force western leaders to deport the Muslims attempting to replace us.

You guys do ROTC or anything like that to get flight slots? I turned down air force scholarship thinking I wasnt interested in military aviation, but now i'm regretting it.

Dont know how fucked I am though without those guaranteed flight slots. Aeronautics major. good GPA, just need help to limit my chances of 10 year contract watching screens instead of flying.

Jet pilot jobs.

There's only so many. Not everyone who joins the airforce gets to be a fighter pilot.

Do volunteer work
Get a letter or several letters of recommendation from AF officers, current or retired

fair enough.
can do, most ones I actually know were army officers, if that matters.

this all submitted with an officer sponser when you originally sign up?

>>28659240
yeah when you turn in your application/resume.

You should be fine. Getting your private pilots license is basically buying your way into the Air Force.

t. Navy

This is false.

In flight school you get separated into three tracks after you finish the introductory courses-
1. Tailhook
2. Rotary
3. Maritime

Tailhook is F/A-18 E/F, EA-18G, and E2/C2, and eventually F-35C. The #1 guy in the class gets it if he asks for it, and somewhere between 10-25% of each class will get tailhook.

About 50% of the class will go Helo (Rotary), which is MH-60R/S, MH53, and MV-22. There are more helo airframes in the Navy than there are jets.

The last 25% of the class will go Maritime, which is P-3C and P-8A.

Google "Navy Quality Spread". The guys in flight school almost all go in wanting jets, but the lifestyle isn't for everyone. Your arthos (height/weight of limbs, etc) limit airframes, and then you have to have 'Jet Grades", which means certain grades in certain classes.

Helo bubbas are way more laid back than fighter jocks. Maritime boys get to go home after they fly, and they also get a "per diem" of pay since they deploy to land bases around the world. They also can get snacks and poop on their plane.

Such is life in NROTC. I have a hypothesis that Computer Science majors get nuke drafted no matter what.

>Buddy year before that got nuke drafted, all 8s on the ASTB, 2.75 GPA

Shoulda stayed a ele. eng. major.
>>
>>28663168

Did you put nuke/subs as #2?
>>
>>28661260

Pretty close, but some things have changed within the last 12 months or so.

Selections out of Primary are now:

1) Strike (Jets)
2) E2/C2
3) Rotors
4) Maritime (P3/8s)
5) E-6s

MV-22 is a while from coming online, no one out of Primary is getting those unless you're a Marine.

As far as community stereotypes, I've met helo guys who are system nazis, jet guys who are as bro as fuck, and every one in between. The whole overriding community personality is overblown IMO. It's more squadron dependent.

should've just gone to academy, but didn't realize how much i'd rather fly than make money.

Yeah I could fail it, but then I would probably get sent to SWO. I'd rather be a nuke then a SWO, because I would hate both, so I'd rather get paid more.

>They also can get snacks and poop on their plane.

Its against the code to poop on the plane. In fact there was this girl on one of our aircrews who did it all of the time, and they called her the enigma because of it.

>>28661260
Is this similar for Marines?
I plan on doing NROTC Marine Option and going for a pilot slot.
What should I do to maximize my chances of becoming a pilot in the Marines?
Keep in mind I still have 4 years of college so plenty of time to prepare.
Also, does anyone know how hard it is to get a scholarship for Marine option?
I'm pretty smart so I should have a 4.0 by the time I transfer to Davis/Berkeley, and my physical standards should definitely be very good in two years. Is this enough?
>>
>>28676581

IIRC marines can guarantee flight school (unlike navy) so as long as your grades are good you should be ok.
>>
>>28672407

>>
>>28672407
god i wish dcs had an f4
>>
>>28676581
through ROTC you can guarantee flight slots by having good grades and doing well in your detachment, im pretty sure.

Just make sure you can make good marks on the marine APFT, and if youre ROTC, youre goign to be working out regularly anyway.
>>
>>28658839
I did AFROTC

There's no guaranteed flight slot. Everyone has to compete. AFROTC and USAFA compete on the same level. All pilot slots are now awarded via population. So basically ROTC gets statistically more because there are more ROTC cadets in total as opposed to just throwing tons at the air force academy for no real justified reason.

>Turned down a USAF scholarship

That was fucking stupid
>>
>>28659580
>>28659240
>>28659128

Literally 100% incorrect. A majority of USAF pilots go in without a PPL. Commissioning sources don't care about flight experience when allocating non ENJJPT pilot slots. They only care about what comes from your commander/TBAS/AFOQT/PT scores/GPA/Degree(sometimes)
>>
>>28679583
pilot slot != pilot though

Still got that class 1 flight physical
>>
>>28679643
got offered a better one out of state to do degree I actually liked. Air force only wanted me to be an electrical or chemical engineer, etc, which I had 0 interest.

didn't know making better money in a civ job was actually boring as fuck and a lifeless existence. all comes down to I didn't know then what I know now, unfortunately.

>>28679663
dont they allocate you based on your status in training? PPL can help me stand out since i know most of the info already.
>They only care about what comes from your commander/TBAS/AFOQT/PT
So volunteering and letters of rec arent that important? I doubt i'll have trouble with the tests
