I have a private pilot's license; can I be commissioned as an aviator?
NOAA Corps has two venues for recruiting pilots:
- Personnel brought in as an Inter-Service Transfer from the US Navy for the distinct purpose of P-3 support.
- Acceptance to flight training following an initial three year assignment at sea as a bridge watchstander.
Note: An officer is not guaranteed aviation training upon commissioning. Pilots and Navigators have strict vision and other physical requirements.
