For other sister service applicants, I went to my First Sergeant and Commander at the beginning of the process (circumventing chain of command) it made the entire process easier when it came to routing paperwork and getting documents signed in a timely manner and left my supervision out of it. I know this is a no-go for some but it worked for me. Also, try to do all the ground work yourself, they'll be grateful to sign an LOR when it's handed to them on a silver platter.

The 3 biggest pieces of advice I can give are:

 

1. Ensure that all your accomplishments and leadership abilities are quantified and highlighted throughout your essay and packet. Warrant Officers are leaders, and as such you need to prove to the board you are capable of leading in the position you are applying for. Remember it is all about potential.

 

2. Ensure your packet is 99% done prior to approaching any Aviator or Senior leader about a letter of recommendation. They want to see you are committed to pursuing this career and not just "hey I think I want to fly, can you write me a letter?".

 

3. Don't think that you are a "shoo in". Don't think that having a letter from a CW5, a COL, a GEN or having your private pilots license, or you are a currently serving crew chief, will make you automatically selected. This forum has proven time and time again that those things are minuscule in the grand scope of who you are as a civilian or soldier. Prove to the board that you are what we call in the SOF community the "full spectrum soldier". You need to be good all around, not just in one area. Stay humble and always look to improve.

 

Good luck to you all and may you get selected first look.

I think bullet one was valid, but 2 and 3 not so much. If anyone is told by a warrant to have the packet 99% complete then find another one. I help applicants all the time. Im only a CW2 but I know who to talk to. Keep looking! Have one ready to be signed!

Also, number 3. Just get the packet done. The Army is desperate for pilots. You will get selected. Most of us are all getting out to take advantage of the civilian market. Everyone everywhere needs pilots.

I think he's spot on. I will talk to guys and explain what it's actually like to be a warrant officer all day long but if you want a recommendation your packet better be almost complete and with recommendations already written by company and battalion commanders.
