Dear Ms. Ida Smith,
I am writing in regards to the open position of Air Force Pilot with the Air Armament Center, Eglin Air Force Base Squadron. The enclosed package contains pertinent information about my military flight experience.
I am sure that I have the experience required to hold this position due to my extensive military background. My current commitment with the US Marine Corps has recently expired and I cannot wait to get back in the air. In addition, I am relocating to your area, so I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to continue serving my country by remaining an Air Force Pilot. I am very flexible and willing to deploy when necessary.
My previous position required me to train new pilots, which I took very seriously. As a pilot, you have many people depending on you. For this reason, you cannot freeze up or hesitate for one moment. This is a job in which you need to keep a cool head and look at things logically to determine the best course of action.
I have a history of being quick to respond to any type of emergency and to make life-saving split-second decision. I have participated in over 200 missions where I learned to deal with real emergencies where precision and quick thinking could mean the difference between making it home safely and dealing with fatalities.
Being an Air Force pilot is more than just a job. It is a way of life and I hope that you will consider me for this honorable and exhilarating position. You can contact me at (555)-555-5555.
