Son hoping for appointments to USMA, USNA, and USAFA (has nominations and completed applications for all three), but would like ultimately to fly jets, although not a requirement in his mind. He and I were discussing which Academy would be best in terms of chances to fly jets, USNA or USAFA (which service has more pilot spots for Academy graduates?). We know zero chance at USMA. I understand that it is impossible to predict the future of a particular person, so asking this as a generic question, and looking for opinion and perspective. And while on the subject, who's pilots serve longer, USNA or USAFA?
