Hey Guys, I am an aspiring Air Force Academy cadet. As the son of a military officer, I find myself living in several locations. Right now, I live at a Naval Base (My father is not Navy, he is Army). I have met with a Naval Officer and he has ran through the Aviation career track for the Navy. It had me thinking about the differences and statistics of Naval and Air Force Aviation. I was hoping you guys could help me out. Which academy gets more flight slots? It's been driving me crazy! I have been thinking about the Naval Academy and the Air Force Academy and their differences in the aviation program. I'm sure many of you out there who want to go to an academy want to have more career opportunities. Which branch will give aviators more aviation-based jobs. For example, if I wanted to be an astronaut further down in my career, which branch would I have the best chance in? I do not mean to sound haughty or selfish, so please don't take my questions wrong. I am a Junior in High School and am going to be finishing up my PPL course in October, the month I turn 17. I am just trying to balance out the USNA and the USAFA. Education will come first for me, and by the looks of it (no offense) the USAFA has a better program to my liking for what I would like to major in. The Naval Academy and the USAFA are all great, but which one should I pick? I hope you guys can help me out! God Bless and Thank You!
