My lifelong dream is to serve as a military aviator, specifically to fly fighters or attack helicopters. My first choice would be fixed-wing, so I have been focusing on USAFA. However, the more I look into it, the more clear it becomes just how slim my chances are of getting a fighter out of UPT (this is all, of course, assuming I get an appointment and then a pilot slot after graduating). Is pilot training out of USNA or USMA different when it comes to track selection/airframe assignment? How competitive are attack helicopter slots when compared to fighter slots?
