    I'll be getting a Bachelors in Industrial Technology by next year, and one of my plans after that is to enlist the in the AirForce as an officer.

    I am strongly thinking about being a pilot (whatever the path takes me). How freaking hard is to earn your wings on the USAF?

    The only people who think pilots are cool are little kids and other pilots.

    Not to rain on your parade, but the odds are overwhelmingly against you getting a flight slot in the AF.

    USAF pilot...still in UPT though

    Hooligan flies vipers.

    enlisting and officer are two separate things though...

    as for how hard it is....i think it's been pretty frickin easy personally.....just time consuming

    It's true, I thought when women would drop to their knees and immediately begin fellatio upon learning about someone being a pilot. I was sorely mistaken. :wtc:

    Being a warrant officer in the army is basically the best job to be in. Because you do your job and that's it

    i get the point, but nobody talks about becoming other warrants
    becoming a signal warrant would be great if i were doing this for a career :wiggle:

    officers dont enlist, and OTS is a long drawn out process that will take you somewhere near a year if you get selected

    so what are some other warrant careers in the army, or a link to them?

    in what kind of capacity would a signal warrant work?
