Remotely Piloted Aircraft Officer

Remotely Piloted Aircraft Officer

Imagine sitting in your Air National Guard unit, just a few miles from your home, and controlling precision-guided munitions in a battle thousands of miles away. As a Remotely Piloted Aircraft Officer, you’ll supervise and lead those missions. In this exciting career, you’ll operate remotely piloted aircraft (RPA) mission equipment, systems, 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 equipment from the other side of the planet, because even the slightest inaccuracy can mean the difference between life and death.
