Good thing we got what we wanted... cause that would have been embarrassing. Looking back we probably jumped the gun a bit on that one.


Thank god! Laser removal would have been terrible.

My god how the time flies. Do you want C-12s or no? I understand the feeling if you don't -- a tiny part of the reason I went Army Aviation was because you were guaranteed helicopters...until like 3 months before my selection when they stuck C-12s in there. Hahahahaohgod.


Time flies?! I was 7-22!

Or get the WO ranks tattooed on your back, before WOCS. And have it be discovered and obviously mocked by all your WOCS brethren. Also don't marry a stripper at Teasers. Yes, that was the same dude.

I wonder what ever happened to that guy.

Youve got plenty of time to worry about getting Apaches.

You couldn't possibly find something worse to worry about. If anything, a trend of low 64 numbers will likely result in a scramble for more 64 pilots at some point.

 

There's no apparent rhyme or reason to any of this.  When I was in flight school, we literally had a class of all Apaches followed the next selection by a class of all Hawks (possibly vice versa).  In the wrong class for what you wanted? Too bad.  The fact that neither would actually class up to advance airframe for 3+ months, and a switch would be nothing more than a name change meant NOTHING.

To expand on other poster comments.
 
 
We say "C-12" but that really expands out to:

  • C-12 (King air)
  • C-26 (Metroliner)
  • UC-35 (Citation)
  • C-20 (G3 and G4s)
  • C-37 (G5)
  • RC-12 (SEMA Spooky king air)
  • EO-5 (SEMA DHC-7)
  • B-300 (SEMA Spooky super king air)
There are also more. Army got a few T-6s that are currently chilling out at Redstone along with some other cooler spooky craft.
 
Point is, we say "C-12" but it really expands to a much larger organization of fixed wing aviation inside the United States Army. The mission is transport, spooky sh*t, and test/research.

Just for clarification, if one were to end up selecting c-12, would they potentially end up in one of those other aircraft which you listed? Or do all start in the king air with hopefully having the opportunity to change airframes later in their career?

Thanks!

You would be able to change aircraft with an additional commitment.
