Hello All,

I will try and keep it quick and Im sure this thread is all over here.

I am a Civilian Fixed Wing Flight Instructor and have just over 600 hours of flight time now and working on my CFII. Graduated college with a Bachelors last summer in Aviation MGMT. I have already taken the ASVAB and ASTB, all I have to do now is get the package together and head to meps.

Just curious on how the application process works for a flight slot. I understand most branches you can apply before signing any papers for a flight slot while in the CG you apply while you're in OCS or after? Just trying to get an understanding. Also do you do the flight physical in OCS or before when I go to MEPS.

Thank you for any help!
