As a current military pilot, are you:

  • Tired of living over seas and/or moving every 3-4 years?
  • Uncertain of your next flying assignment?
  • Exhausted from the active duty ops tempo?
  • Ready for something different?

Transitioning to the Guard or Reserves may be a great option if you desire:

  • Flexibility to live where you want — for as long as you want.
  • Flexibility to fly what you want.
  • Flexibility to be full-time or part-time.
  • Flexibility to control your career progression tailored to your desires.
  • Flexibility to pursue civilian opportunities (e.g. airlines, school, business, etc) while continuing to serve your country.
