I just received my flight school date from my state. Can anyone here find out if it's a 67 or 72 class?

Currently the split is one 67 class for every three 72 classes. I dont think there is anyway to give you a definite answer though.

There is a 72 class with a start date of 13 Mar, I'd bet that's your class.

That's interesting. Wonder if one of the dates is off because SERE isn't factored in. I'll just play the odds and learn 5 and 9 on the 72. Thanks a bunch for checking for me. I was hoping for 67, but the 72 is beneficial in its own ways.

Couple of quick questions for you guys. Im a civilian woft applicant and am currently trying to tie up all the loose ends of my packet. My first question has to do with the timeline of my security clearance interview. Do you need the clearance before packet submission or is that dealt with after selection? My recruiter doesnt seem to know. My second question has to do with my LORs. I currently have six and Ive heard from different people to just go with your 3 best letters from high ranking WOs. Id like to keep all six because I have a nice combination of people like my former professors who knew me well and higher ranking officers and warrants.

One of the posters here is/was a board member and he is adamant you include your 3 best letters, and that include more only hurts you.

Your recruiter needs to have you fill out the SF 86 completely and you'll do an initial interview at MEPS when you get selected. My clearance took 13 months to get finalized. Hopefully yours will be more streamlined.

Listen to what people who've gone through the WOFT program tell you. 3. Best of 3. There is a reason for this. Look back through the forums and you'll understand why. The USAREC board isn't going to read all 6 of your LORs. If they randomly just pick one to glance over (which isn't unheard of) you'll increase the odds of them picking the best ones. Not a swipe against you or your college experience, but the board could care less about what your professor has to say vs. what a Line Officer or Warrant Officer has to say, assuming you have 3 from Officers...

 

The Clearance process will be explained to you at some point. Just fill your SF-86 out and talk it over with your recruiter. Plus, your security clearance process shouldn't really be discussed on an open forum....

 

What is vs. what should be,  is the beast you gotta contend with during the WOFT process....

Im not sure I know the difference. WOBC includes report date for SERE/Dunker? Because thats what Im sure my date is, even though she phrased it as flight school.

WOBC is the beginning of flight school technically. Just won't be near any helicopters for a couple months. WOBC is a 3 week class, followed by dunker/HOST, followed by SERE, and then actually finding out which air frame you'll fly during common core. WOBC is always first and then order can be changed somewhat.

Is WOBC strictly aviation skills or does it include "how to army" like range time?

You'll do a pistol qualification, but that's it as far as range time goes.

Is rifle qual part of WOCS/required for those of us coming in from another branch? I don't know if the army is like the USMC where you were required to have an annual rifle qual on record

You'll qualify every year with rifles and pistols.  As far as flight school goes I remember having to qualify on both during a course called JOPD.  But that course went away according to MuffinMan above it sounds like you just do M9s now.

I appreciate it. Sounds like that flight class date isnt mine then. Still holding out hope for the 67.
