    Hey all, I will be heading into plc this summer as an aviation contract. However, I’m curious to know other options/ paths to becoming a pilot preferably a fixed wing one. I know for plc there is the aviation contract that guarantees you flight school contingent upon you finishing plc, but apparently another way to earn a pilot slot is through air national guard. Does getting a pilot slot through air national guard mean you have to be active duty first or can you apply to compete for a slot once you finish college with no prior service?

    The National Guard hires directly for their unit . You can have no experience or you could have been AD at some point . It all depends what they are looking for . You will know exactly what you will fly as the National Guard unit only flies one type of plane. If they hire you and that is a big If, they send u to UPT along with the AD pilots to learn how fly
