Being former Army, I can't speak to specifics, but the first thing I would do is go see your campus ROTC commander. If there isn't one, track down the local AF recruiter.

If I'm not mistaken, you'll need a college degree and a commission. If there's an AF ROTC, you can do that or Officer Candidate School. Then you'd probably need to qualify and attend flight school.

You can also check out the AF Guard/Reserve.

You could also try for the AF Academy, which if it's like West Point, should also be a 4-yr University.

Again, your local ROTC commander or recruiter can answer your questions best.
