    Steps to become a Fighter Pilot ?

    Hi, I know this question is answered 100 of times.
    Let me first introduce myself, my name is Vishal. I'm from India, I came especially to Germany to become a fighter pilot. I'm 17 years old and in the 10 th grade.
    Lets get to the point than. Can it be possible to join the US Airforce/Navy. I mean I'm a foreigner but have a german pass, is it possible with a green card ? Since I have to be a officer to become a Fighter Pilot, than I have to be a soldier. What happens if I don't make it to being a Fighter Pilot do I still have to serve as a soldier or can I leave. I don#t have much idea about the German Airforce since they only say  you to have a high school diploma with very good grades. And they only have PA-200 Tornado, EuroFighter and the F-4F Phantom 2.
    Is it true that a foreigner can be beaten up, bullyed in any military, airforce in any different countries. Did anyone have this experience ?
    I would be glad if someone can answer my questions.
    Thank you.

    I don't know what the german requirements are, but you need to be a US citizen, have a college degree, and go through a commissioning program (US Air Force Academy, Air Force ROTC, or Officer Training School) before you can qualify for a pilot slot in the USAF.  There is also an age limit.

    That is the official US Air Force site, so it should be accurate.

     

    Which part are you refering to, exactly?

    Can a non-U.S. citizen join the U.S. Air Force?

    Yes, they can enlist, but that is not the issue here.

    However, only officers can be pilots.  Officers must be US citizens.
