Is it really impossible to reenlist from active duty army when your contract ends to active duty air force?

Most services do not like to take prior enlisted from other services. The policies, procedures, rules, etc do not carry over and it would be like you are starting over. You would lose rank. The main reason is they have an unwritten rule about not poaching people from the other services. Your best bet would be to use the GI BILL, get a degree and then get a commission as an officer in the USAF.

100% impossible. You might be able to complete your Army active duty commitment and then enlist in the AF, but they have just a few AFSC's that allow prior service Army. That is NOT a reenlistment.

Not totally impossible but pretty damn close
As of right now the USAF is not accepting any OSVETs (other service veterans). That may change in the future

Not impossible, but EXTREMELY unlikely. The services don't want prior service, even their own prior service. The only current exceptions are for critical skills. There have been exceptions in the past, especially when the Army really needs people.

Never say impossible. but odds are not favorable or realistic either.

Pretty much yes. AF does not take prior service as a general rule

it can be very hard
no service likes taking prior service, other service or even their own prior service
