Hopefully the absurdity of this thread's title will not dissuade you from giving me a chance to explain. Like a lot of high school juniors from around the country, I am beginning the process of applying to the United States Air Force Academy for the Class of 2022. I am already applying to Annapolis (first choice) and West Point, I liked Air Force when I visited, and I want to serve in the military any way I can, so I thought it would be in my best interest to apply to USAFA Summer Seminar and start an application. Although I was turned down from Summer Seminar, I opted to use my USAFASS application as the preliminary application to the Academy Class of 2022. When it was reviewed, I saw in my portal that it had been deemed "competitive". I am now actively competing for an appointment to the United States Air Force Academy. However, as you may have guessed, there is a major issue I have to confront: I don't want to fly. It's not that I'm afraid of heights or planes themselves, but I've just never really had an interest in being a pilot. I also wear glasses, which doesn't exactly fit the model of an Air Force pilot. It's trivial, but I always feel uncomfortable when people say, "Applying to the Air Force Academy? So you want to be a pilot?" and then I explain that I actually don't. After researching on the academy's website and the Air Force website, I know there are a lot of opportunities for officers that don't involve piloting an aircraft, but I can't shake the feeling that I shouldn't even be applying to Air Force if I don't have any affinity for getting in the cockpit. Have there been or are there other candidates and cadets in my situation? Do most cadets out of a graduating class become pilots? Thanks for any of your responses, and sorry for the question.
