Topic: Reasons given to choose AF over Navy Aviation


As given to a forum member...my reasons for Choosing the Air Force over the Navy if you were wanting to be a pilot. It was meant as a joke, by the way:

Positive side to Air Force life:

1. Non-moving warm bunk to come back to after sorties.

2. You don't have to worry about the landing strip leaving the surface due to torpedo, bomb or missile poisoning.

3. Availability to a land based pub or bar possible after the missions done.

4. If you have to bug out, at least you have a all points land run to provide a means of escape.

5. A relationship with a family is still possible at other than six months intervals.

6. The uniforms are a little less expensive.

7. Then theres that water thing again: running, with the potential of being armed and able to fight against the two legged hazards, beats swimming in shark infested seas.

8. On land, you would have a lot longer runway, with less dependance on wires made by the lowest bidder to stop you from becoming fish food.

9. No Captains Mast: enough said.

10. No need to invest in dramamine's corporate structure for relief.

Positive side to Navy Airwing activities:

1. You can see the world. Most of its water. Trust me on this.

2. Liberty in strange places, with strange people.

3. You never run out of things that have to be done.

4. The scenery always changes. Alot.

5. Those great customs...crossing the line ceremonies, becoming a dual hemi-sphere veteran..and the annual floggings.

6. A direct prayer line to God...via the Captain as his representative.

7. Fire drills take on a whole new meaning....

8. You do Learn a whole new vocabulary...bulkhead, deck, head, and BOHICA...(Bend Over Here It Comes Again).

9. Landing on a moving platform at a 150 MPH and stopping in 1.5 seconds adds years to your life

10. You never have to worry about where you left the car keys...

Oh this is funny. If anybody gets offended then you defiantly know you just met one of those officers where the regulations book is what they read before they go to bed

Quite interesting...and yes some are true, but think about it, the AF would be just another expensive flying club without its weapons...So whats the point of joining it? NAVY is still better. (Just sticking up for the Sailors that I know)
