Hello, Hello,

Recruiters, some say I will be eligible for WOFT after 1 year of enlisted service. Is he just trying to get me to sign an enlisted contract?

He said it's better for those who are trying to get into woft to do it from the enlisted ranks if I don't get picked from the board.

Thanks,

Pluto

Start with a full wasted all of your resources try as a civilian before you enlist.

Your recruiter needs contracts to make mission. So end of the day he wants you to sign something. Nothing against him but hes gotta make mission

Yes I figured his goals are more self centered. Which is normally behaviour we need to mitigate. But at least he is offering an opportunity. So he doing his part.

He might be offering an opportunity but he is giving you misinformation entirely. Most recruiters dont know anything about the warrant officer program for flight school. If you want to go to flight school directly, then you need to do your own research about how and then ask your recruiter to help you. If he tries to enlist you first, then find another recruiter. Sure, you can always enlist first as a helicopter crew chief but then you will find out that its WAY more difficult to get a flight school spot. Why? Greater competition. Its that most soldiers in the army have figured out what a great gig it is to be a warrant officer aviator. They do their research and build their packets and are way more competitive on paper than you so they will more than likely get picked up. And theres way more paperwork to do on the enlisted side (aka getting your leadership to sign off on you even though they just got you). But not many civilians know about this program so theres less competition and less army legal paperwork that the Army has to deal with. So long story short, you CAN apply without any prior army experience and probably should if you are serious. If you want to increase the amount of well qualified soldiers that you would compete with, then enlist first. I hope this is helpful.
