What do you get? If selected to participate in the AHFA, you will be matched to a partner university flight training program. You will have the opportunity to live, dine, study, have fun and learn to fly while earning a certificate of completion. Students will experience first class university Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) authorized flight, ground and simulator training curriculum. In addition to training, the USAF sponsors comfortable campus living arrangements, and access to school services such as dining, fitness and recreation facilities. The university will provide FAA curriculum and in-the-seat aircraft practical experiences to stimulate your interest as a professional aviator. This program does not constitute any military obligations or commitments. It requires students to arrive ready to study with a positive attitude to be successful. Students will be asked to collaborate on small teams, develop professional relationships with staff and students and support your fellow team members. Success in this program may open future USAF aviation experiential learning opportunities. The Air Force selects students based on eligibility criteria, the student’s complete application, and a nomination statement. If students are not selected for the AHFA program, there are other USAF sponsored aviation programs they may be eligible for.
We look forward to watching you soar at the AHFA!
