Thanks, but not really my question. In the case where a cadet is forced into a rated position, can the Air Force still require the 10 years?

Absolutely. The person going through UPT could wash out on purpose though and be told what other non rated job they were being sent to that doesn’t incur a 10 year commitment.

Might be incorrect, but I was under the impression that you cannot be volun-told for a rated career. Any informed insights?

CSO, ABM, and RPAs are rated but only incur a 6-year commitment. Pilots incur 10.

Extremely unlikely to drop pilot or any rated if you didn't want it. Even so, I've heard from people cases in the past where people were forced into rated positions but to my knowledge this situation doesn't happen now. If you didn't put pilot on your dream sheet and are selected pilot, you can give that slot to someone else. But yes, if you were somehow forced into pilot you'd get the 10 years.
