We know how hard it is- particularly these days- to stick with a dream. That’s why we’ve provided the Afterburner Club, to be a place where you can share your dreams with the like-minded few others who will join you in the cause of defending our country, and to get the inside scoop on what it takes to make it all the way to the cockpit of your dream jet.
In the Fighter Pilot Power Pack, available at www.becoemfighterpilot.com, you will find the most complete and concise information on what it takes to become a fighter pilot and what to expect in your career as an officer and fighter pilot. But it also helps to know what the appropriate candidate is looking for.
So, what does a recruiter look for? First and foremost, they want a person who has a bachelor’s degree in a technical field. Although any four-year degree will do, a major in math or the sciences will be helpful to you in passing the ATSB test (or AFOQT if you’re going Air Force). Now, if you’re one of those people who have the dexterity to pass the ATSB with flying colors when you’ve spent the last four years studying Underwater Basket Weaving, then odds are you’ll be okay too. But for most people, getting used to math and science (especially physics) will go a long way towards helping you pass that test with the high score that you’ll need. So don’t be afraid of math or science. It won’t hurt nearly as much as you think.
Another thing that recruiters are looking for is a candidate who is of high moral character. High moral character doesn’t mean that you always do the right thing every second of your life, but it doesn’t mean you should be the kind of person who covers up his mistakes either. High moral character means that you have integrity. If your record is full of instances of you helping other people then great! But if you do have some troubles in your past, all is not lost. If those problems are far behind you and if you can show that you truly have changed and are ready to take on the challenges of your country’s cause, you’ll only prove to them that you have integrity, and the high moral character that they’re looking for.
But above all, they want someone who is motivated! Recruiters can, and often will, give young people who want to be fighter pilots the “cold shoulder.” The whole selection process is actually designed to weed people out so that only the best remain!
That is where the Afterburner Club comes in. We can show you exactly how to stand out and be one of the few who remain, even if you have some sort of medical condition or blotch on your record that you think may disqualify you! It Doesn’t necessarily! And we can show you how.
