    What and where

    Hey guys, i'm trying to find out as much information before contacting a recruiter. I want to become a pilot. My question is, do you pick your aircraft and type of pilot. For example did you pick to be a pilot of a Fighter jet and be a recon pilot, or a cargo plane pilot, or is it assigned to you? Does this change in time with your experience levels? Also do you pick where you are stationed?

    Re: What and where

    It depends. For the Air force, active duty student pilots will find out what type of aircraft they will get at the end of pilot training. Generally, you fly one type of aircraft for your career. However, some aircraft are special duty aircraft, so you only fly those for a few years.

    If you go Air National Guard, you know what kind of aircraft you will get, and where it is based.
