Hello, my daughter is in 10th grade but she is 15. She has her learner’s permit for driving, not sure if that makes a difference. I was wondering if there is a way for her to take advantage of this program despite her age?Aim High2020-11-18T15:12:48-05:00
All requirements must be met in order to apply; the minimum age is 16.
One of my AFJROTC cadets is having issues completing his application. Since he is a high school student, he is not a part of ROTC, Guard, or Reserve. When he selects “none,” he is redirected back to the application and cannot submit it.Aim High2021-01-14T10:08:22-05:00

I’m an AFJROTC senior instructor and this looks like a great opportunity for my cadets so I’d like more information about it. Is this related to the Air Force Flight Academy? It appears that the application process is different. What is the cost of this program? Is the end goal a private pilot’s license, or to solo, or just to get in some flights or other training?Aim High2020-12-03T13:09:41-05:00
This program is a solo flight academy put on by AFRS Det 1 and is different from the AFJROTC flight academy. This is a scholarship and free of charge for selected students. If you need more information, please send inquiries to: afrs.DET1.email@example.com.
I will be at Aviano AFB in Italy during the dates of the academy. Will airfare to the states be provided in the scholarship?Aim High2020-11-18T15:11:56-05:00

We have an aspiring aviator in our AFJROTC program that has a current application for the JROTC Flight Academy and is also interested in applying for this program in the event that he is not selected for the JROTC Flight program.
