Hello, I do not have any questions about sports I am simply replying to this because it is the most recent. I am 14, and slightly ignorant on the topic of the USAFA but I have done research and I aspire to be a fighter pilot. I am confused as I have read things about the "pipeline closing" which I assumes means less pilots needed. I have read up on what it will take to enter the USAFA and I realize it will be hard but I feel I have the knowledge to make it. I have read from these forums that you don't have to major in much to become a fighter pilot, however I would still like to graduate obviously. I am wondering just what I do on my path to become a fighter pilot in the airforce. Some of these questions include when does training begin, what do you learn as a cadet on his way to the AF in the AFA, and also what determines my success in the AF and AFA, I really just need to know about my path as an aspiring fighter pilot, that will possibly go through the USAFA. It is quite hard to understand some of the research I have done as I am not immersed in the environment of the USAFA and I am just entering high school, so I just need a basic explanation of my path ahead.
