You have to be one smart sob to fly one of those. TONS of learning from a bunch of thick books.

I'm debating Air Force OCS, so I am aware of what pilots do and what they need to do accomplish this, like practice. However, where this was filmed looks to be some sort of base which is not where a maneuver like this should be attempted when it is not necessary. Go away from the base, and do this. Trust me if I was to become a pilot I would be tempted to put on a show, but you have to be aware that something could go wrong and you shouldn't put people on the ground at risk.

Imagine how the pilot feels, luckily you won't be unprepared if you do decide to become a pilot. If you have perfect eyes, please go for it. It's a dream of mine to fly.

I have perfect vision and graduated top of my class with an engineering degree, but do experience motion sickness so I don't know how I'd fare. Although they do say most people are able to overcome it within a few flights..

This is one of my inspirations:

I honestly just never want to play anymore, not that I ever played that much. I go into a game, and without VOIP, it just seems stupid....

Stupid socom/bf3 history rant:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I remember socom 2, I was hooked on it. Then came socom 3, big maps, zero old maps. That was so so at best. Then, not counting that in between one, socom 4. That's where they took away almost any possibility of shooting from the hip (run n gun). You had run, run fast and aim n craw, just like BF3. And it died. So here I am now trying to take up a game that is the same technique as the one that killed socom (of course zipper being totally incompetent and unable to learn from their mistakes probably didn't help any). Not only that, but the best way to play it is with a keyboard like games in the 80's, and that's only because they make the the sticks on a controller move so slow (even when dialed all the way up). Maybe they work better on a console, but the ps3 died (due to excessive updates) and there's no way I'm paying microsoft a dime to access another company's servers via a gold membership.
But take all this with a grain of salt and chalk it up to just having a bad day here.... If I really meant it, I would have uninstalled the game already and unsubscribed to this thread. I wouldn't have even bothered to type this out...

But I do mean what I said about the in game VOIP. Stupidity is the only possible explanation for that....

This is one of my inspirations:

To be a f18 pilot (ie. Navy) you'll need better than perfect 20/20 vision. More like 20/10 or better. Air Force ( as you mentioned earlier) has a lot more seats to fill so you should do well there. Plus if we ever get a space program again, your odds are much better to hop a space ride being a AF pilot. Also remember you'll need at least a bachelors degree to be a officer, which you have to be, to be a pilot. Unless you want helis. Then you'd want to go Army. I think you need to be a Sargent to fly a Huey type, not sure about the gunships. And motion sickness isn't a issue if you're the pilot for the same reason you can't tickle yourself....

To this day I'm still tempted to join the (Australian) army as a chopper pilot, I'm pretty sure I'd get in... I'm in my second year of uni studying engineering(I'm pretty sure the recruiters would love that) and I'm perfectly healthy... the only issue I'd have is with my eyesight, luckily they will pay for and then accept you if you have laser eye surgery.

I don't know why but this reminds me of stupid players claiming they're good pilots in Battlefield 3 but they're not. Hate it when a noob tries to fly for you and fail. I meant no OFFENSE to the fellas in the videos and i hope they are ok.
