A young cousin of mine (he just finished 10th grade) has decided he wants to join the AF to try to become a pilot. The AF Academy will be his best bet to accomplishing this but admission is very competitive. I've spoken to him about the basics about earning the highest marks he can in maths, science, etc. and told him to start running his legs off. I also showed him the Academy website and showed him what will be expected of him there. Can any of you give this young man any further advice about getting accepted?
