What is the age cut off to become an air force pilot?

I would like to be a pilot but am concerned that because I am 30 years old they will not accept me.

All pilots must be commissioned officers, which requires a four-year college degree and successful completion of OCS. Pilots in the USAF must meet the selection board before the age of 28 years, 6 months. The age varies somewhat across the various branches of the military, but unfortunately, 30 exceeds all of them.

I do believe that the "standard" official age is 29 which is higher than it used to be. That said, anything is waiverable. I believe there are people over that age currently going through training for this exact thing.
