Air National Guard Test Pilot?
I am new to this application but I did have three questions. Just some background I am a 17 year old Cadet 1st Lt in the Civil Air Patrol and just recently won a scholarship to earn my private pilot’s license. I am very interested in becoming a pilot in the Air National Guard and eventually a Test Pilot. However, I have not fount much information on Guard members getting selected for Test Pilot school. I wanted to know if I’m better off going active duty or if it’s possible to get selected in the Guard.
My second question is when applying for UPT boards do I have to wait until I completely graduate College? Or, can I apply say Junior year and give them my graduation date?
My third question is with airlines increasing pay do you all think it would be smarter to start with a regional carrier for say 3 years then go guard. That way I already have turbine time and have a good amount of money in the bank.
I appreciate any answers you all give me.
