Air Force ROTC offers free training for students to get a Private Pilot’s License
The U.S. Air Force is offering Stetson students the opportunity to earn their private pilot’s license at no cost if they enroll in the Air Force ROTC program – with no commitment to serve in the military.
Air Force Capt. Daniel Q. Speir said the deadline is Monday, Jan. 21, for students to email him and express an interest in the AFROTC “You Can Fly” program, which provides the civilian ground and flight training needed to earn a private pilot’s license at no cost.
In exchange, students must enroll in the two courses needed in the first year of ROTC, Air Force 101 and Air Force 102, along with participating in four hours of fitness training and marching per week.
