Would someone mind explaining this selection process to me? Im assuming this is the advanced airframe selection for COs/WOs finishing IERW.

A few posts up there were 26 UH-60s among the other airframes. The following posts show no -60s, and only 4-5 of each other airframe.

Is the total number of slots available directly related to the number of pilots in each class?

If there are zero -60s available, are you SOL if you wanted that airframe?

*Would like to mention that as much as I would prefer the UH-60 when my time comes, I will be more than grateful to be flying any of the available aircraft.


Luck of the draw man. Never know whats comin down the pipe. My selection had 12 64s and 3 60s. Ive heard of a few people being able to switch somehow, but they all had very high ranking connections.

The only way to better your chances of picking your top choice is to work hard and score high. If youre at the top of the OML, youll pick first.

My selection had one 47, three 64s, and 9 UH60s. The bottom 50% of the class selected 60s regardless of their preference.

They usually take place every two weeks. I havent been around B Co and most of my friends have graduated already.

That is what I have always known since I have been following this forum and this thread is one I always look forward to seeing the next post. That is why I was asking because it has been over a month since anyone posted about any selections.

47 courses are increasing from one per month to two and 8-10 per class to 14-16, so the numbers will likely be higher for the near future.

I wonder if the pending conflict in Syria will affect selection rates. Anyone have an opinion?

Word going around about the reason for this class not having any is that they just dont have the 64 IPs available at Rucker to keep up with the recent rise in 64s at selection. I cant say whether or not thats true, but it does make sense.
