Does anyone have a list or know how to find out which Guard units have fixed wing openings? Im trying to find some information for a friend looking to go WOFT guard. Thanks in advance.

OTS accessions for guard flight school are few and far between.  I only know one or two people that have actually done it without prior service, and even with prior service, it seems to be a rare animal.  Most states want to access from within, and I know my state has passed back slots because they didn't have anyone available, but they still don't have a "pool" of civilian applicants to pull from. It's kind of silly...

 

That said, it's going to be even more difficult/I'd say nearly impossible to get a fixed wing slot in that manner.  Those can also be rare, and often used as a reward, unfortunately.  My state, again, is hurting for FW pilots, but more due to the lack of schools available, and the requirement for a follow-on qual course which is hard to get slots for.
