These rules have been relaxed considerably since 1997 (and some before that). I have a bunch of ...

  • Re: Do I still have a good shot?

    Goose,Have I got some great news for you. While the USAF and the Navy might care about your grades, I can tell you from experience that the Marine Corps could care less...you just need to cross the 2.0 threshold. As a Marine fighter pilot myself, I have seen some amazing pilots who would not have gotten into the USAF or the Navy because of grades ...

Step one is to decide on a service (AF, Navy, Marines), then a program (ROTC, OTS, PLC, OCC, etc...). With that you need to ask yourself if you want money for college or free time during

  • Re: becoming a fighter pilot

    Fransisco,In addition to the many pieces of good advice on this post, let me tell you what I think is your greatest asset right now. Your post said: ''I am a freshman in high school.''
