My DS is a sophomore, has an AFROTC scholarship and hopes to get a rated slot next year. Prior to attending college he was about 2/3 of the way to getting his PPL. He has about 30 hrs and has taken his solo flight. He has received some advice (source unknown) that it would actually be detrimental to have his PPL if he gets a rated slot. The theory is that it is better to attend IFS, rather than go straight to UPT in case you didn't learn to fly the way the AF wants. Does anyone have any experience with this?
