    If they say you have a 90% chance of getting a pilot slot, what do they really mean? :squint:

    Um thats more than likely a lie. I HOPE your trying to get commissioned in instead of doing enlisted. Not only that recruiters don't know the top or bottoms about becomeing a piolet and the qulifications that are needed. You get tested on tons and tons of things and you maybe disqualified before you even go in for your physical. Good luck though.

    go do some investigating on your own on becoming a pilot in the AF without going to your recruiter. The less you involve a recruiter, the better. Most of them have no fucking clue whats going on.

    if your going OTS (sounds like you are), then try to get one of those guaranteed pilot slots, i knew a few people who got'em

    otherwise, work hard at OTS, there is no guarantee of anything and OTS is definitely the hardest source to get a pilot slot out of

    also, get ready for a hellish year - getting the slot in no way means you'll make it through the training.

    The Marine Corps is the only branch which will 100% guarantee you a pilot slot in your contract.

    If it is in writing, in your contract, and you sign it, it is a legally binding contract. they can't change it. That is against the law.

    The contracts are written though, so if you flunk out of school or fuck up somehow you can be reclassed to the needs of the service. But you have to be found unfit for your specific job.

    Like normal you are wrong. Army will guarantee a pilot slot to new recruits through the Army Warrant Officer Aviator Program.

    Army enlistment contracts are guaranteed for everything listed in the contract. If the Army tries to back out on any part of the contract, and you have met all requirements, you can apply to separate.
