:hurray:  Congrats! I know how exciting that is--dh and I were already engaged when he applied for and received his pilot slot. Like your ds he'd dreamed of being an AF pilot since he was little. Pilot training was a long and stressful year, but also a year full of good memories and accomplishments.

Huge congratulations are in order!!! My DH wanted to be a pilot from a small boy as well and is a Naval Aviator. He now flies large helos for a private company. The military set him up for a wonderful career.

That is huge. I remember what a big deal it was for my pilot wannabe friends in my AFROTC days. They were walking on air when those slots came through :)
