Yes there are plenty of enlisted guys that go to flight school. There are also plenty of guys that get in with the hopes of going to flight school and realize they like the job they have. Get in, see how things work once you become an AET and flight mechanic qualed, put in some OCS packets and see where you go from there. There is also a chance that you get selected to OCS and not flight school. Best of luck!

Aloha All!

I'm turning 24 right before leaving to boot camp next month. I graduated with a BA from the University of Hawaii at Manoa and unfortunately have not heard about the CSPI/WILKS program until after I graduated. My plan is to become an AET and hopefully become a pilot someday. My question is are there any enlisted guys that got in OCS and fight school? Is there still hope for me? I'm really looking at making the Coast Guard a career. Thank you!

You should look at CSPI-SLRP since you've already graduated! It's not very well known but even as an enlisted member and not a civilian you can apply and because of your university you will qualify! It's hard to beat $60k worth of student loan repayment & a guaranteed commission. On top of that the CSPI programs have fewer applicants. Check it out! https://www.gocoastguard.com/active-duty-careers/officer-opportunities/programs/cspi-student-loan-repayment-program-cspi-slrp

I'm a former AET and I can tell you that I know a few AETs who went thru OCS and became pilots. 
I can also tell you that I got out of the CG as an AET to attend law school. I was recently selected for a direct commission back into the CG at an officer. Without a doubt my time on the C-130 as an AET gave me a variety of experiences and awards that helped with the selection process for the direct commission lawyer program. 
Any aviation rate is a great opportunity to further yourself, not only within the CG, but with almost any other endeavor.

Very cool that you got out and came back in as an officer! I'm currently awaiting OCS results as a civilian and have no issue enlisting if I'm not chosen. I've looked at AET and IT heavily and wanted to know what the job outlook is like for AET on the outside? It seems much more fun and interesting than IT!
