Naval Aviator Interview

Naval Aviator
San Diego, CA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at US Navy.

Interview Details – First, get selected as an officer, via Naval Academy, NROTC, or post-college graduation officer candidate school (see a recruiter). You'll have to have done very well in school and be in great physical condition, and have an aptitude for aviation (per a written aptitude test). This will hopefully get you selected for U.S. Navy flight school. THEN, study hard, be mature and tolerant of stress, treat every day/flight like a final exam, then you'll graduate and earn your Naval Aviator flight wings

Interview Question – Are you prepared to commit to 8 years of active service in the U.S. Navy, after the 2-3 years of flight school?   View Answer
