Read this on another Forum, has anyone heard of these changes coming.
"Today, we had a great and interesting WOPD from the senior Chief (CW5) from the CAC. What we expect to see in regards to WO accessions is that AFS will be bumped from 12 to 14 years for tech warrants. The reasoning is because they want NCOs with more experience (possibly that has already completed SLC) to be selected for Warrants. On the flip side, for aviators, no more than 8 years AFS will be the criteria for selection. They want aviators to serve more time and that means a 8-year ADSO compared to a 6-year ADSO for technical warrants. Also, aviators will expect to serve three years as a WO1 compared to the current two years across the board (tech two-year from WO1 to CW2 will remain the same). Why? Because their WOBC is 18 months compared to every other WOMOS and they want a certain amount of flight hours before reaching CW2. Currently, some are promoted to CW2 with just 70 flight hours logged."
