Used to be at least for primary you get Jets. I know one guy who got Huey's and a 47 NSS out of there. Haha
Hasn't been true in years, since they retired the Tweet (T-37). That said, when I went through, the API guys were using the Tweet as a draw to try and get students to volunteer for Vance, saying, "If you fly a jet in primary, they'll be more likely to pick you for jet advanced!" Needless to say, not many students bought that line of BS. They also used the "USAF primary leads to higher NSS!" BS line, also to little effect.

Yep. I flew the Tweet. Had no issues passed every flight ended up coming out of there with a 47 NSS and helo's for advanced. Was disappointed at the time, but it all worked out in the end and I don't think I'd change anything going back. Still would have liked to take a cat shot at least once in my life though.
