According to AR 601-210 from last year, persons with no prior service are authorized to apply for Enlistment Program 9J, which is WOFT in the US Army Reserve.

 

See Page 107:

Has anyone gone through this? Is it still an option? 

 

Thanks.

IIRC, As a WO1 you are appointed to the Army Reserve until you are commisioned as CW2

Right, but this is a separate enlistment program from 9D, which is "active duty" WOFT resulting in a 6-year full-time commitment. It appears that 9J refers to a WOFT program leading to part-time service in the Army Reserve. I didn't know that such a program, available to those with no prior service, existed.

Have you looked at Guard at all? Thus far it has been my experience that even if the unit doesn't openly advertise a "street to seat" program, they may still offer one if in need of pilots.

mike0331,

Just FYI, I sent you a private message regarding the guard. Any information would be appreciated! Thanks.
