Good evening, I am in the class of 2017 at USNA and have a few questions about aviation through the academy. 1) I have my Private Pilot's License. What other things make me more competitive for a Naval/Marine Aviator slot? 2) I am very interested in Marine Aviation as well as Naval. For the Marines, do you just simply say "I want either Naval or Marine Aviation, it does not matter?" I ask this because I want to serve my nation by flying and am willing to do it through either service. 3) My vision is 20/70. I was told in this forum about my 2/C year I can receive PRK surgery. I only have myopia as far as I'm aware! Just double checking that you can get the surgery and still apply for a slot! 4) Anybody with experience, what are pros and cons with each service in terms of the aviation route? 5) If I do not get a pilot's slot through USNA with neither service, which career paths are close to flying or give a good adrenaline rush? I don't want to end up being another person at a desk. I don't feel like I'm reaching my potential and making a difference at a desk. Any advice and information is much appreciated!!!
