I am 15 in one month, and I want to go to the AFA when I am older, and I have been looking through this site a lot recently, and there is a lot of talk about the CAP. If I do go to the AFA I want to secure a pilot slot, and before then I was thinking about getting a private pilot’s license. Soon I will start doing virtual flight simulators so it might help when I take real flight lessons (and since it looks fun). Can somebody tell me what it is like, and how much flight time I will get (when I am old enough to fly)? Can I get flight lessons or a scholarship for them? Will it interfere with school sports and AAU sport (games are every saturday and sunday from april to august, and one practice a week)? Furthermore the reason it is in this section is that I want to know how much it will help secure a pilot spot, help in being appointed, and how much it will help with the Air Force pilot training (I forgot what the real name for it is)? Thanks for all the help you guys (and girls)! Sorry for asking so many questions just answer what you want, anything will help! PS. If I have a −1.75 correction in both eyes (I wear contacts/glasses) am I pilot qualified?
