Imagine sitting in your Air Guard unit, just a few miles from your home, and controlling precision-guided munitions to eliminate an enemy target in a battle thousands of miles away. As a Remotely Piloted Aircraft Pilot, you'll supervise and lead those missions. In this exciting career, you'll operate remotely piloted aircraft (RPA) with a multitude of equipment and systems, such as electro-optical sensor systems and electronic protection (EP) equipment, to complete intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) missions. You'll also plan missions, including close air support, interdiction, armed reconnaissance, combat search and rescue, and limited forward air control. It takes a steady hand and cool nerves to precisely operate weapons and equipment from the other side of the planet.
