fightergator said:Waiting periods vary. It appears that the requirement to do SLT prior to pilot training can now be waived depending upon the numbers of trainees available to fill pilot serials. All of the reports I read in others’ comments were credible. If a candidate is unlucky, it could take close to three years from beginning Basic Training to earning wings and up to almost two more years prior to completing an OUT. However, a very lucky individual could end up in the same place in a little over a year and a half.
Not to come off as a personal attack, but ask around on the training side before making a comment on timelines. I've been in 2.5 years, and have PFT done thats it. MJ is upcoming soon. All things go well I end up on AFT maybe late 09, probably early 2010. By the time that course is done I'm looking at 4.5 years from BOTP to Wings. And my timeline is VERY typical. The year and a half just doesn't happen.
I'm not trying to discourage anyone, I love what I do. And encourage anyone who is given the chance to at least try and see what happens.
