Dude...I just figured out your avatar pic...it’s the USS Meyerkord...which is a Knox-class frigate...and I remember them [Knox-class frigates] floating around while on deployment in the 1980s.
Age limit to become a pilot in the US Navy is 32. That's when you need to commission by. Different communities have different unmanned aircraft that they use. Drone pilots are not a separate "job" that the Navy has.
LATE ENTRY: So... @Meyerkord ...what is your affiliation with that specific boat?
