Guaranteed aviation slot?

In any branch, reserve/enlist, or anything. Is there a way to have a guaranteed pilot training slot when you join? Any info is welcomed

I'm sure you'll get a full answer from someone in aviation, but before that, you need to change your whole military mindset.

Nothing, in any branch of the military, is guaranteed. Except taxes and bull****.

The only way I know of to get "guaranteed" a flight slot, is coming out of a Service Academy, or ROTC.

Even then its not guaranteed. You have to submit a service selection packet with what job you want, and selections are made based on grades, military aptitude, test scores, etc

Marine Corps Officer Program will guarantee you a slot at Flight School if you meet the rigorous parameters. But that's it, not being a pilot. Just that you'll go to Flight School.
