This is how it will go: You may get intel. You will washout, and become a cop.

Cops are cool though. lots of deployments.

I'm 17 and thinking about going into the Airforce when I graduate high school. Ever since I was a little kid I've always wanted to fly aircraft, because my grandpa was in the Airforce. But I wear glasses, and I know the airforce will only allow you to get a certain type of LASIK surgery to fly if you are visually impared. So I'm uncertain on whether I would get to fly or not. I'd like to fly strike aircraft. Could someone please give me the low down on the Airforce?

If you want to be a pilot you need to be an officer and to be an officer you need a college degree.

Oh, that kind of screws up my plan. I was hoping to be able to use the GI Bill to help pay for college while I was in the Airforce.

bachelors to be exact, and since im a pessimistic person less than 5% of the airforce are pilots, its one of the hardest things to get into, my suggestion to you (ive considered this but realized its not in me to be a pilot) is to try to get into the air force academy (on par with harvard and many ivy leagues), look it up, you need a pretty high gpa (above 4.0 weighted), extra curriculars, and letters of recommendation from your state senators, congressmen, etc. good luck man its tough.

fyi im not in the air force (yet) and im looking to do pararescue or security forces (future cop)

or you can earn you bachelors in the force as a enlistee and the recommendations would be better since they come from people who know you and are current officers.

Go to any college with an AF ROTC program, get a scholarship and get your BA with that. A buddy of mine does it and just got got pilot a few weeks ago. Another got SF. Be good at what you do though and be committed to it.

You would be using TA (tuition assistance) while enlisted not the GI. To use the GI i think you have to be past your 1st term and because while you are in you get college paid for(up to a certain amount per year) you wouldn't want to take it out of your GI. Plus i think most of the people that get into the pilot training are ones who have graduated from the academy if not a school with AF ROTC because for certain career fields its kind of difficult to take much college while your in.

Doubtful. Intel Officer doesn't have much of a washout rate. it's normal for a class to have somebody back cycle or get held back a block but they get at least two chances.

there's thinking and then there's knowing. It's good practice to only say what you know instead of what you think unless you are being asked for an opinion. Not trying to be a dick.

Well in my defense you never said as an officer... I believe we all just assumed enlisted, otherwise you would have mentioned the term officer.

And I do in fact KNOW that the washout rate for enlisted Intel is quite high, as I have many friends both in intel and who washed out. So I would say that is a good basis for judgement.

But on the good side of things, you already think you are better than everyone else so you would make a good officer. Congrats

that would be cool but the job of making poorly educated jihadists think the world around them is being turned upside down is done by a pilot pushing a button and the weapons operator agreeing that the cross hairs are in the box and allowing the weapons to fire. it would be a bad *** job though. one I'd trade a certain left organ for.

I did in my first post on the first page of this thread...

just because a lot of people that you know washed out doesn't mean that the washout rate is high. it may just mean you have dumb friends(I'm kidding)

and as to that last part **** you very much.

I believe when people say the washout rate is high for intel i think theyre also factoring in the amount of people who dont make it because they cant get the needed clearance as many of the intel jobs require TS clearance. theyre not trying to be *******s theyre trying to tell it to you how it really is, not the sunshine and rainbows that the recruiter/liaison tells you.
