Jay, The AF is seeking pilots with ONLY the "high tech" graduate studies degrees. You have to be heavy with math & sciences. Height, weight and age restrictions will also play a factor. Blonde hair & blue eyes with German or Austrian decent is a plus too. OK, maybe not.
Uncorrected vision is a paramount issue, however once you are "in" the program you can get a perscription for corrective lenses. The AF still frouns on the LASIC vision "fix", even though the US Army is activily encouraging it's troops to have the procedure.
Now, ...everyone wants to be a jet jockey and fly fighters. The reality is that not everyone will make the cut due to AF needs and academic qualifications. As for the B1-B, YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING ME!? What a piece of flying fuel leak. You know it's being phased out and it's down to 60+/- flyable aircraft right now? I'm not going to go into ALL the engineering shortcommings of that A/C right now. UAV's, UCAV's, cargo/transport/aerial replinishment, helicopter, are the future of the "near" AF aircraft. We're always going to need cargo planes to drop Army pukes into a hot zone, drop humanitairian relief (No spell checker here!), etc.
Technology is stepping in and up so that manned combat aircraft will be more cost effective.
