Field Training

Between cadets’ AS200 (sophomore) and AS300 (junior) years, they go to Maxwell Air Force Base in Alabama and Camp Shelby in Mississippi to apply everything they have learned in ROTC.

Selection for field training is highly competitive.  Throughout the four week encampment, cadets are placed in high-stress environments and expected to use the skills they have learned to accomplish daily tasks.

All travel, lodging and meals are provided.  Cadets are evaluated by their supervising field training officer and ranked within their flight. The cadet’s ranking will be used, in addition to several other factors, to assign them a future Air Force Specialty Code and also factors into pilot or navigator selection criteria.
