    Mobility Pilot Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tampa, FL
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at US Air Force in April 2009.

    Interview Details

    Hiring was almost automatic from the Air Force Academy. Get a pilot slot from college and being a mobility pilot is a given. Fighter pilot is more highly competed for, but the people aren't great.

    Interview Questions
    • Why would you want to leave? It's such a "you must be a part of the team" atmosphere that considering outside opportunities are highly discouraged.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    Very lenthy process with the hardest part as getting accepted into pilot training. Many aspects are taken into consideration but the first step is getting accepted into a commissioning source like the USAF Academy, ROTC, or Officer Training School. While attending the commissioning source, you must be in the top of your class to get selected.

    Interview Questions
    • The medical exam is very lengthy and detailed. Most of it is out of your control.   Answer Question
