Aviation Accessions

The most common question for an FTS applicant is “What should I expect after being selected for re-designation?”  

First, you will receive notification from PERS-9 on the specific community that you were selected for and given an opportunity to either accept or decline the re-designation.

After all officers have accepted/declined, you will be contacted by the FTS Aviation detailer who will provide possible squadron options with a request for your preferences. 

"Which squadrons are available to FTS officers?"


Fleet Logistics (VR)  New VR accessions will normally be detailed to one of the five C40 squadrons or one of the five C130 squadrons for their Department Head tour.
