What they do

The position I would like to reach in the Air Force is a Top Gun Airman. They are the most skilled jet flyers and have a lot of responsibility. Their duty is to accept any mission that the government requires of them.

Why I chose this

I think this would be a good fit for me because I like a lot of action. I’m physically fit and I have common sense. Math is one of my strongest subjects and that would help me as well as my good grades. I’m responsible and as long as I keep a clean record and continue getting high grades, I’ll have better chances of getting in. I’m not afraid of heights or pressure, which are both factors of being an Airman.

Experience or skills needed

physical fitness, responsibility, good grades in school, clean government record, not afraid of heights, able to withstand G Force,and common sense.

Education requirements

the only required education is a high school diploma. You get on the job training from the Air Force. They teach you everything you would need to know for the placement best fit for your abilities and interests.

What branch of science

This career would fall under the Physical branch of science because it has a lot to do with physics and mechanics. Whether you’re flying the jets or building them, technology is greatly involved.

something I found interesting

The skill it takes to be a top gun airman is incredible. I’ve always been interested in the air force, the missions they have to complete and the importance of their work.
