Good news: I and a fellow cadet of mine were awarded a new type of in college AFROTC scholarship tonight. It is an express Air Battle Manager scholarship which, upon signing, guarantees you a field training slot, but also that you will commission as an ABM. Bad news: We both want to be pilots. My eyesight requires that i get PRK before flying in the AF, but I would not elgible for PRK until I was 21, which is the summer before senior year. Pilot boards take place during what will be my junior year. Basically, I'm asking if you can be put up for a pilot slot without yet meeting the eyesight qualifications. We both have our instrument ratings now, so we are definitely set with pilot as #1 choice, but my eyesight gives me a hurdle. I just am not sure on those requirements, and whether I should take this scholarship or not. Also, if anybody knows if you can transfer out of the ABM career to pilot, I'd appreciate hearing it. I am asking others these questions too, I would just like a consensus from different people. I will ultimately make the decision, just hoping somebody has answers to my questions.
