Aviation Accessions

The most common question for an FTS applicant is “What should I expect after being selected for re-designation?”  

You will receive notification from PERS-9 on the specific community that you were selected for and given an opportunity to either accept or decline the re-designation.

After all officers have accepted/declined, you will be contacted by the FTS Aviation detailer who will provide possible squadron options with a request for your preferences.
