My DS has been interested interested in Space Force or AF for about 4 years. He would like to fly first, and then work in Spaceflight Operations.Good luck everyone! Just wondering, for those set on attending USAFA, what's the main motivation? Does everyone have a specific Air Force career in mind or is there some other reason?
Is it possible to fly in the Air Force and then transition into Space Force?My DS has been interested interested in Space Force or AF for about 4 years. He would like to fly first, and then work in Spaceflight Operations.
Plan B is to study Spaceflight Operations/Mandarin at ERAU and then reapply to USAFA. He is hoping for the appointment, but would be over the moon if he even received an appointment to USAFAPS.
If he had the skills why not? The military gets their person for longer and gets a use out of them both ways. If they can do both jobs well and it means they stay in longer ( instead of retirement and working for say delta) it's a win. Pilots typically don't fly for their whole careers and move into office jobs.Is it possible to fly in the Air Force and then transition into Space Force?
Where in the portal are the letters of correspondence posted?Based on my DS's experience, a letter will be posted in your portal from admissions informing you they have requested a waiver on your behalf. Then your DoDMERB will update. Then they will contact you if they want more information for the waiver consideration.
