PILOTING THE FUTURE

11UX

Today, more and more missions call for remotely piloted aircraft, such as the MQ-9 Reaper and the RQ-4 Global Hawk. And as the demand for these specialized aircraft grows, so does the demand for qualified pilots to fly them. Whether it’s providing close-air support, gathering intelligence or conducting strategic air strikes, RPA pilots are an integral and growing part of our nation’s air defense. In addition, RPA Pilots are officers in the U.S. Air Force responsible for guiding others and leading by example.
