    Fighter Pilot Question

    Hello to everyone here,

    I have been looking around the website for a little bit but I apologize if I have posted this in the wrong area. My question is that I am graduating college and plan to continue on to Med School while going career in the military as a physician. All my life I have been interested in joining the military and always loved the engineering behind the different tools and vehicles. My favorite has to be the A-10 and I have always been told that my vision was too poor and that I was too tall (6'1") to ever become a pilot. My grades are good but my classes have always been geared towards medicine. Would it even be realistic yet alone feasible to become a fighter pilot? I would love to be an A-10 pilot but I do realize it is not only one of the elites but I would be playing catch up. Thank you in advance for your time and any and all input.

    Well, I don't know about your vision, but 6'1" is NOT too tall to fly. 

    You should look into AFROTC for more information.

    Hi guys. I have a little bit more special issue. I'm a 21 years old Bulgarian student and I don't have an American passport. DO I have any chances of becoming a US fighter pilot? I'm 1.87 meters, 91 kilos.

    You need to be a US citizen to be a pilot in the USAF.

    Age limits for pilot training and time requirements for citizenship may conflict.
