Howdy, recently I’ve been looking through these forums to see if there are individuals who have advice/recommendations for achieving a Private Pilot’s License and getting a good amount of flight hours going. I heard many recommend CAP, some even say they did it all on their own. I researched online too, coming across the AFJROTC Flight Academy Program/Scholarship (unfortunately I just graduated and am no longer in AFJROTC). All in all, if y’all have any ideas you’d be willing to share I greatly appreciate it! I’ll include some information about myself to give you a better idea. Background: I did AFJROTC for four years and was inspired by my instructor to pursue a career in the USAF. I was awarded a 4 year Type 7 Technical Major AFROTC Scholarship. I will be headed Texas A&M University in a week, consequently as a part of the Corps of Cadets. This has been my first big break to pursue my dream of not just going to college but majoring in engineering and having a chance at earning a slot for a rated career in the USAF. I know a couple of others with the same opportunity, but they’re going in with a PPL (a little more fortunate monetarily) and it sounds like this is a great booster to the all-around aspect that’s taken into consideration for these slots. I understand there’s TONS more that goes into being considered for selection, but I’ve worked extremely hard to get this far and I’ll continue that in every way possible (academics, fitness, FT, AFOQT, etc.). Thanks for any and all help!
