Well you won't be able to fly an F-16.

However you are essentially at the maximum height. You may be a bit under or a bit over. If you're over you may be able to get a waver, however that would not be that easy to do.

Your AFOQT score and college GPA are also going to be very important, not only to determine whether or not you get into OTS, but they represent a significant quantity of your "pilot pie chart". Or the combination of factors that they consider for pilots. Between your GPA, AFOQT, SAT/ACT, BAT, and PFT scores that will make up 50%, while a recommendation from your CO/PAS/Etc. will make up the other 50%. I do not have the piechart infront of me however and there will probably be slight differences percentile wise between an OTS commission and ROTC commission.

Is that only for the F-16 or is that for all other fighters? Do some have more space for pilot or is it the same standard for all of them? Thanks for help.
