It would happen regardless of whether they stuck with the traditional selection day choices or this new system. The same aircraft spread will be available for that specific class no matter which method is used.

 

I disagree. Why change the format then? Change of command at USAACE and within a week we saw this implemented. It seems like somebody is trying to tackle the shortage from the back-end by bulk filling classes that are starting soon? We might never know why, but I don't think it is at all the same.

I was told that they changed it because selection day is a huge family event. They dont want to embarrass someone who is low on the OML, which is why they call them out alphabetically.

Where do you think they get the available airframe choices from? They don’t just make them up at random for each class, they are based on forecast class slots available which won’t change whether everyone picks one at a time from the board or assignments are made automatically from the list.

This may have been answered but when you select airframe do you know where you're going geographically.

No. You’ll usually find out about two months before you graduate.

You used to provide a list of your choices after selection (the same day) but it has always been a needs of the Army assignment process. There is very little consideration given to where you said you want to go.

It's most likely just 60s in general. You get Mike/HH "qualified" as you go through units that have them.

That is incorrect. Rucker used to do A/L's and M's (which were selected separately just like 64D/E) but was moving towards doing away with the A/L course entirely and only teaching in M's.

The few A/L models were those of the guard/reserve guys. Theyre going back to states with A/L and a few of them will get retrained on Mikes later.

Selection yesterday, (8 OCT 19), consisted of:

 

5x AH-64E

5x CH-47F

6x C-12

31x UH-60 (a few A/L's in there)

 

Not sure what the split was between WO and LT, but a great spread nonetheless.
