I referenced this website immensely during my journey to becoming an Army Aviator, I now i'm back looking for any guidance and a glimmer of hope. I'm at K16 in Korea, and to say i'm not enjoying my time here and my career so far is a huge understatement. I really hate to negatively speak about the Army, but it's just the honest reality of my situation. All my friends that selected fixed wing are enjoying their careers and are happy they went that route. My question to any experienced guys is; is there any way possible to transition to fixed wing after your first assignment? I ask this with full knowledge that the fixed wing boards no longer exist. I guess i'm just looking for a glimmer of hope to get out of Army rotary wing aviation.
P.S. I would also be willing to try out for the group, but I don't know if they would be willing to let you transition to their fixed wing side. Would anyone know if that's possible or have a contact that would be able to answer that question? Thanks in advance for any advice, even though I know the majority of responses will be telling me to suck it up lol.
