I know there is a section for military questions, but i just wanted to know if anyone flying civilian(like a cfi) ever thought about, or actually went ahead and joined the airforce or navy... The thought has crossed my mind on more than one occasion, and with the state of the civilian airlines as of now, I might just end up doing it! I am 22, with my cfi,ii,mei,a&p,fcc, and with a decent amount of hours. Funny though, i feel i am not moving along my career path(ahh, FedEx). In my mind if i join the force(and get accepted) I will be flying bigger planes sooner than in the civilian world, where you need like a million hours of pic wide body! Any thoughts greatly, greatly,greatly appreciated, its a 10 year commitment!
