            Work Environment

            As a Navy Pilot or an NFO, missions and assignments can be anywhere around the globe. This includes working from carrier battle groups, or other sea-based platforms, and at Naval Air Stations or other locations on shore.

            Currently, this position in the Navy Reserve is open only to prior or current military aviators and Naval Flight Officers.

            Serving part-time as a Navy Reserve Sailor, your duties will be carried out during your scheduled drilling and training periods. During monthly drilling, Navy Pilots and Naval Flight Officers in the Navy Reserve typically work at a location close to their homes.

            For Annual Training, Naval Aviators may serve anywhere in the world, whether on a ship at sea or at bases or Naval Air Stations on shore.

            Training & Advancement

            Those entering aviation programs must first attend Officer Candidate School (OCS) in Newport, RI, and then complete a six-week air indoctrination course at Naval Aviation Schools Command, in Pensacola, FL. From there, prospective Pilots and NFOs attend primary flight training.

            Pilots and NFOs then request an aircraft pipeline and enter the intermediate phase of flight training, which builds upon basic flight and navigation training. The final phase is advanced naval flight training, focusing on mission specifics. After completion, Pilots and NFOs are awarded their "wings of gold" and report to their respective Fleet Replacement Squadrons (FRSs) for further training specific to their aircraft.

            Promotion opportunities are regularly available but competitive and based on performance. It's also important to note that specialized training received and work experience gained in the course of service can lead to valuable credentialing and occupational opportunities in related fields.

            Currently, this position in the Navy Reserve is open only to prior or current military aviators and Naval Flight Officers.

            Most of what you do in the Navy Reserve is considered training. The basic Navy Reserve commitment involves training a minimum of one weekend a month (referred to as drilling) and two weeks a year (referred to as Annual Training) - or the equivalent of that.
