Hey guys, I'm currently a nuke ET on a sub and I'm considering being a pilot in a few years (I'm only 20 and I just showed up to the boat in June so I have a while to think about it). I read the gouge on API (http://www.airwarriors.com/forum/showthread.php?t=14323) and the description of the curriculum and exams sounds a lot like power school to me. As I was going through the pipeline (And I'm sure a lot of you prior nukes heard this too) they told us that the nuclear pipeline was one of the hardest programs around. My question is, how do both pipelines compare, difficulty wise? Obviously the nuke pipeline required very little physical strength, but it was still pretty tough. Obviously everyone's different and anything could happen, but I've made it through the nuke pipeline. Is it safe to say I'll probably make it through the pilot program? When I was going through, there was an approx. 90% pass rate throughout the entire pipeline. What percentage of student aviators make it through and become pilots/NFOs? I've only heard rumors about those numbers... Any information is greatly appreciated. Thanks a bunch!
