Hi guys, I'm 26 years old, 77kg weight, 5.87feet, pretty fit. I have MSc in Electronic Engineering from Polish University. I'm working for Intel and will be moving to San Diego in few months. Is there any chance for me whatsoever to become a F16 pilot?

I have no experience nor any licenses in any of that. I could dedicate time and money to achieve that.

For the USAF, you will have to be a U.S. citizen

I know, I can sort out a citizenship in 6 years. By then I will be 32 - I guess too late?
Is there any place other than USAF where I could become an F16 pilot?
