Not exactly true. There are plenty of people who desire helicopters.I have a feeling that most people (not all) who go through UPT are trying to avoid helicopters. So, if you want helicopters in the Air Force, I dont think its going to be a huge challenge
DS is currently in UPT in Del Rio and is interested in helos. He is the only one in his class that has expressed an interest and has been told that the last class had 2 students track to helos and they expect 2 to track from his class. He was given the advice to think carefully about his choice, let his preference be known, and then do his best at UPT.Can anyone speak to the competitiveness of getting a helicopter slot out of UPT in the Air Force? I have heard that there are only 1 or 2 slots per UPT class. I am currently an Air Force ROTC Cadet at Embry-Riddle.
