Air Force Academy sending more cadets to pilot training to stem shortage

from Stars and Stripes via

More than 530 U.S. Air Force Academy cadets from the 2019 graduating class have been selected to attend pilot training, pending final qualifications and commissioning, the Colorado Springs-based academy said in a statement this week. The number represents a 26 percent increase over last year's graduating class, academy officials said. In 2018, 417 graduates were scheduled to attend pilot training.
