Sorry if this isnt entirely related to USNA but here it is: I'm not sure about the competition to get a spot to go to flight school in pensacola from USNA but lets say a student gets picked to go. Then you have a student who just graduated from Embry Riddle Aero. Univ. with an Aerospace science degree and an FAA commerical pilots license. This student would like to go to flight school in Pensacola, so would the USNA and ERAU students both be going to the same navy flight school? This is only out of thought, but do the ERAU guys with aerospace science degrees do better in flight school than the other classmates because of the fact, he took the military pilot track degree in ERAU, flew in school, and got ratings? I would only assume, flight school would be very easy and thus graduate at the top of his class. I guess im just curious as to if it is a benefit for a military pilot hopefull to go to ERAU and have aviation as your life for 4 years because of the knowlege you will know when you go to class in pensacola and you have other students from USNA, civilian school, etc. wondering how the cockpit works. Anyone have insight?
