    You dont need to know the actual AFSC for your essay. Just talk about what you want to do.

    PILOT

    All these fields seem very interesting, but if you are pilot qualified, it seems sooo tempting to go into the pilot field because it is so difficult to become an AF pilot outside of the academy. Space/missile command sounds really enticing as well and what is the manpower field?
