  • Re: pilot wanna be

    Well, I don't see why you shouldn't join the Air Cadets.&nbsp; A lot of our fighter pilots were in the Civil Air Patrrol over here as kids, and a lot of CAP cadets go to the USAFA.&nbsp; About joining the Canadian military...you could probably get a fighter slot.&nbsp; I know that it seems difficult, but, hey, obviously people do make it.&nbsp; ...

  • Re: Color Blindness?

    Well, I went to a presentation on the service academies with my dad.&nbsp; I got a copy of&nbsp;a congressional nomination form and it is a big packet with a bunch of questions.&nbsp; There are parts where they'll ask you about your hobbies and achievements and things like that, and that's where you can probably write dow your HAM radio ...

  • Re: Color Blindness?

    Yes, this is a tough case.&nbsp; You should go and talk to your doctor about this.&nbsp; Still, if it is only on these tests that your color vision seems to fail you, I can't see why you would not be allowed to fly.&nbsp; They might even grant you a waiver anyways.&nbsp; Like I suggested, you should probably go and talk to people who really know ...

  • Re: Color Blindness?

    I went to the USAFA website www.academyadmissions.com I searched for the policy on colorblindness and I uncovered only this: ''...Successful completion of the Pseudoisochromatic Plates or Farnsworth Lantern color vision tests and the Vision Test Apparatus Near and Distant (VTA-ND) or Titmus Stereofly or Randot Stereo or Verhoeff depth ...

  • Re: A 26 year old story ...

    You said something about enlisting and going to OTS.&nbsp; Remember to make the distinction.&nbsp; If you want to be an officer&nbsp;do not, repeat, do not enlist.&nbsp; You just go to OTS.&nbsp; About the age limits: USAF: Must meet a selection board before age 28 1/2. Must enter Undergraduate Flying Training (UPT) before age 30. USN/USMC: To ...

  • Re: Is my dream too late?

    I regret to inform you that according to http://usmilitary.about.com/od/joiningthemilitary/l/blpilotage.htm, you are too old. I only checked for the five services, not for the different National Guard branches,&nbsp;so check those out. The good news?&nbsp; I believe that you can still become a civilian pilot.&nbsp; If flying is really what you ...

  • Re: Academy or ROTC?

    By the way, would I really have a better shot at flying with the Navy than the Air Force?&nbsp; I can think of many reasons why this would be true, but I'm not sure.&nbsp;

  • Re: Any suggestions?

    If you want to go to a service academy, then make sure you have a GPA of at least 3.5 and that you do athletics and community service.&nbsp; The aformentioned GPA level is not a prerequisite (I think the minimum is actually like 2.00), but it is recommended.

  • Re: Am I too short? :(

    I think its 64 inches for the USAF and 62 inches for the USN.&nbsp; So, you may have a chance with the Navy.&nbsp; I'm not sure what the requirements are for the USMC.&nbsp; I could be wrong, but I think these are accurate.&nbsp; You might still grow a couple of inches.&nbsp; Also, they might give you a plane without an ejection seat in the USAF ...

  • Re: The requirements of becoming a usaf fighter pilot????

    Here are your best options: 1. The United States Air Force Academy.&nbsp; Being a junior, it is not too late to get a nomination from the proper authorities.&nbsp; Competition is tough, but getting involved in your community and at school, as well as getting good grades and participating in athletics should get you in.&nbsp; About half of ...
