I thought they were getting 60L's with no transition to Mikes anytime soon (At least for Irwin/Polk). Could be wrong but I thought thats what I got from branch brief last week.

 

That could be right, now I can't remember if she (the HRC lady) specified 60Ms or just said 60s.

Unfortunately admins are pretty much nonexistent. That said, I may be getting pushed to the next class since I'm down and out with the flu right now. If so, I'll have the next class' options as well.

Well I went through BOLC, so the new WOBC is a bit different. That said, my advice would be to take it seriously. Study hard for the tests--even though it may not seem that important now, WOBC still counts towards your OML fairly heavily. Scores in WOBC tend to differ a fair amount more from person to person than in actual flight school where the scores are incredibly close together. You're lucky. BOLC was twice as long as it needed to be (for the Warrants) with extra non-sensible stuff that they've eliminated with WOBC.

 

My overall advice for flight school is keep your eye on the next 25m target. It doesn't do you any good to worry about your checkride three weeks out if you've got two academic tests beforehand. Take everything one test and one day at a time (daily questions, 5s&9s, etc.). Once that is squared away then glance at the stuff coming up. Just don't let yourself get wrapped around the axle about the future. Flight school really isn't that difficult if you have sensible time management skills. Oh, and KEEP UP ON YOUR PT.

Is that the short term list available to those selecting in the next 90 - 120 days? There are a few bases missing based on what HRC is kicking out.

This is the list for our class' selection specifically. They update it for every class. Which bases are you referring to?

I noticed Campbell and Germany weren't on any lists.

In addition to those mentioned for 60s there is
Honduras
Egypt
Japan

These may be off limits to new pilots because they are UH60A/L assignments.

Campbell is because they're deploying at some point, Germany because 12th CAB is getting shut down, Honduras because the need is so low (I think she said something crazy like 1 pilot?), I've never seen Egypt on a selection list, and I don't know why Japan isn't on there.

I wasn't implying you left them out, just mentioning them as possible duty stations.

The Army is very bad at communicating and HRC is even worse. I wouldn't be suprised If someone you know gets sent to Campbell even though they are deploying soon.

Oh I know, I was just saying why those duty stations that are normally there weren't. There's a guy a couple classes ahead of mine whose wife is an O-3 at Campbell, and they still couldn't get him there. He's going to Korea for a year and they'll meet up at Campbell afterwards. I agree it's still possible though. Hell, it's the Army.

Quick question--if you have pets, what happens if you get sent to Korea?
