The outlook for military workers, including military pilots, is expected to be excellent through 2018, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Approximately 184,000 new enlistees and officers must join annually to fill vacated spots. In recent years some branches, such as the navy, have fallen short of meeting their recruitment goals, and opportunities in these branches are even more plentiful than the average. While political and economic conditions will have an influence on the military's duties and employment outlook, it is a fact that the country will always need military pilots, both for defense and to protect its interests and citizens around the world.
