Becoming an Air Force Pilot
When Anthony was six years old, he announced at an airshow he was attending with his father that he was going to be a fighter pilot. That statement at a young age inspired the choices Anthony would make to ensure he would achieve his goal. Now, as a newly commissioned 2nd Lt Officer in the United States Air Force, Anthony will take you through his journey from Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) to Undergraduate Pilot Training (UPT) to Introduction to Fighter Fundamentals (IFF) where he learned Basic Fighter Maneuvers (BFM) flying the T-38. For anyone thinking about becoming a military pilot, or if you are just interested in learning about the process, then you will not want to miss this talk.
