    Most military pilots in the U.S are the same way before 9/11....they would join the air force or navy to be trained to fly for no cost, just sign a contract that they have your ass for 6 years...fly, fly, fly, log hours and gain experience and then once your time is done, get out and apply with the airlines..the best way to do it, if your eyes are good enough and are phyiscally fit, they'll accept ya no matter what....right now, with pilots being furloughed in the airline industry 'cept for ExpressJet since they're hiring mad right now, pilots in the military are now staying in...which is smart move. You should make it a career since you're still young and decide 20 years later if you want to fly with the airlines.

    I think the RAF has picked up on the fact that a lot join, then leave ASAP for commercial!

    12 years?! I think the USAF minimum is 7 or 9. The RAF must really like its pilots!

    Should we read anything into the fact that your username on another site no longer exists, or is that just coincidence?

    For someone who made a lot of noise on his departure, you've reappeared with a bit of a whimper Jeff, I'm terribly disappointed.

    Your welcome! I thought you would have preferred the Navy, but you'll do well in the Air Force.
