If that’s the case, you need to determine the non-piloting skills you have that will translate to non-piloting civilian jobs.

ClearedJobs.Net’s HR Specialist and veteran Patra Frame provides tips to help transitioning military figure out the types of civilian positions that interest them. Some highlights:
