Hopefully some of the current US Army warrants can shed light on this.
Besides individual mission of your assigned unit (attack/Recon). How much actual hands-on flying do NEW warrants get straight out of flight school with the Apache?
Is it mostly front seat/gunner-focused for new guys? I understand the front seat has a collapsible cyclic, but is it ever really utilized if you occupy the forward cockpit? If not gunner focused for new guys, do most guys switch back and forth? And finally, How often are you guys doing XC flights to regional airports for a bite to eat? lol - I used to see 12th AvB's 60s at my regional AP's FBO/Diner during civilian flight school all the time before I got into WOFT.
