I think the USAF is having problems with requiring pilots to fly drones (often half a world away from the control room).

Did you really want to graduate from the USAFA, get your USAF wings, and then spend 8 hour shifts flying drones? Looking at the promotion statistics you also realize that your upward mobility might be limited.

But I'm retired navy pilot and so far do not hear much about this being a problem with the Navy or USMC pilot group?

Regards,

Dux
