    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.
