Over 400 US Air Force Academy Graduates are Set to Attend Pilot Training

The US Air Force Academy celebrated the graduation of nearly 1,000 Air Force and Space Force officers. In all, 863 class of ’22 cadets were commissioned into the Air Force and 94 were commissioned into the Space Force as second lieutenants.

Four-hundred-seventeen graduates are scheduled to attend pilot training; 11 are scheduled for combat systems operator training; nine are scheduled for air battle manager training; and 24 are scheduled to be remotely piloted aircraft officers. In all, 461 will enter rated career fields and 382 nonrated career fields.

Graduates incur a five-year service commitment and an additional concurrent service commitment, depending on the training, schooling or scholarships they receive. Graduates attending pilot training have an active duty service commitment of 10 years after receiving their pilot’s wings.

Combat systems operators, remotely piloted aircraft sensor operators and airborne battle managers incur a six-year commitment. Graduates completing airborne battle manager training incur two concurrent service commitments, a five-year service academy graduate commitment and a six-year airborne battle manager commitment.

With the Class of 2022, 53,198 men and women have commissioned into the Air Force and 293 men and women have commissioned into Space Force.
