Do I have a good shot at becoming a fighter pilot?

    Do I have a good shot at becoming a fighter pilot?

    Dear community,

    My name is Montgomery and I am 16 years old. My dream is to become a fighter pilot. I currently go to a school where I am in Air Force JROTC. I am also in a class called Aviation Fundamentals where they select 12 students out of about 60 and pay for ground school. I have been selected, so when I graduate from high school next year I will already be an instrument rated pilot. I am a black belt in karate and I am open water SCUBA certified. I am an A student and in the National Honor Society by the way. I also plan on joining the volleyball team junior year. The only setback I see is that my vision is around 20/50. I only use glasses to drive and at night. Do my chances of getting into the Air Force Academy or Naval Academy and becoming a fighter pilot later on seem good?

    It sounds like you have a pretty good chance for an appointment to USAFA or USNA.
