I am seeking advice on going from reserve status to submitting my Warrant Packet and going active duty in aviation. Any advice will help.
1) I am currently a reservist drilling with my unit, normal reserve status.
2) My goal is to go active duty with my Warrant Packet.
3) I have been told a few different things as far as how to get into the active side of aviation.
a) I must apply as a reservist and go thorough training, graduate, report to a reserve aviation unit, then apply for active duty
b ) Get a conditional release from the reserve and submit that with my initial warrant packet, then get assigned an active unit after I graduate, given that I fulfill all of my proper training.
I think that is the basis for the scenario I find myself in, and I am having lots of trouble with figuring out what to do. I am aware of waiting for slots, but I have been told I will have to wait nearly a year just to submit a packet. If there is any advice or contact info or anything it will be greatly appreciated.
