I know there are a few pilots on here from a few different branches. I'm curious about your life stories; how did you get to the point where you are today? Did you go to the academy, ROTC, OCS? Do you choose which type of aircraft you choose or is it assigned to you? Say I were to do Army or Air Force ROTC, if I branch aviation what are the chances of me actually flying (with respect to each branch)? I have heard it is largely warrant officers that fly. I know you have to work hard to be high enough on the OML to branch aviation, but could I get stuck as a flight tech when I really want to go to flight school? Basically: I want to fly, what do I have to do?
