Discussion in 'Naval Academy - USNA' started by agolson, Jan 2, 2011.
What % of Naval students successful complete Pilot training each year?
Sorry, that acronym is new to me. Do you mean UDT? Underwater Demolitions Training? Or something else? Pilot training, maybe?
Change the wording. Does anyone know the anwser?
I assume you're asking that, of the USNA candidates who select pilot upon graduation, how many of them complete training. No idea. Sorry. I would say that the overwhelming majority do. Main reasons for not finishing would, I assume, be: (1) medical DQ once there, (2) lack of aptitude.
Adding to 1985's list is choice. Because of excess candidates (or ?), training slots can be delayed. To ease the pressure, some were asked if they'd take another service option. I know one who's now a JG in the Civil Engineer Corps.
I don't know that the number the OP asked for is readily available. I would imagine someone, somewhere looks at that, but I've never seen it.
I would say the vast majority who start API are going to complete pilot training in my small census. There are always fluctuations and right now a back log of candidates so as mentioned above they offered lateral transfers. They also raise/lower the scores required in API based on the numbers as well and that can at times catch people. Overall though, most who start, will finish.
