    Hi!
    I am a first time applicant for USAFA after applying to USMA last year, and was curious if being medically cleared by the military academy would logically mean I would be cleared easily by USAFA. My depth perception is faulty bordering on nonexistant, and I would never trust myself to operate a plane, but of course there are still other ways to serve, even in the branch that is almost all about the flying. I get no depth perception DQ's me from aviation, by extension does that mean I'm out of the academy as well?

    Thanks!

    You just won't be pilot qualified when you go it. If you are great in every other way though you will be fine. Though they do look for pilot qualified candidates, it is not an end all, since only 50% of each class gets pilot in the end. There are other jobs you can do.
