  1. Yeah, just shy of 200hrs. Relocation isn't an option so the only agencies I'm aware of with aviation units are the (3) SO's I mentioned. It was suggested to me to try and get on as a TFO upon conclusion of my probationary period until I was able to build up enough hours to function as a pilot. Does FWC fly out of Palm Beach, Broward or Martin Counties?
  2. Hi, I'm a recent graduate of the Army's Black Hawk course located in Palm Beach County, FL. I also currently hold my FDLE LEO certification, though I'm not currently employed as one. If my goal was to ultimately fly for a local (Palm Beach, Martin or Broward County) law enforcement agency, is there anything that I could do to accelerate that dream coming to fruition outside of choosing one and spending an indefinite amount of time on the road for the chance at being taken in? Can anyone local to me chime in?
  3. Glad I got in when I could. Had no idea USAR aviation was such a small community compared to ARNG and AD until I got here to Rucker.
  4. USAR and ARNG already know their airframes and unit locations prior to their arrival at Rucker, with some exceptions. There's just no way to have some sort of OML for such a thing when the state/component is writing the check for you to be here. The 'worthiness' of the individual is left up to his/her selection board and the unit that 'accepts' you. If you're an AD WO/LT and fretting about things out of your control, it is only going to make things more stressful for you out here. I hear and see it everyday with the AD folks. If you make peace with the fact that having the opportunity to be an Army aviator is awesome enough, you'll take whatever airframe you end up getting with a stupid grin on your face.
  5. Kill the sections that are able to be studied. The SIFT booted me out of the math section after about 2 min. However, I killed the other sections and pulled off a 60. Quizlet really helped with the aviation knowledge.
  6. Had a few "street to seat" guys in my WOCS class but only one true "High School to Flight School" dude. Though he got a lot of crap and still does to this day for being so young, I can speak for most who know him and say that we are all rather impressed with his level of maturity and ambition for only being 19. From what I recall him telling us was that he was an Eagle Scout, had some good LOR's, participated in sports and was good at PT. Right time right place. AD Army was looking for someone to invest in long term and he fit the bill.
  7. Correct. Same kid failed initial APFT for our class after sitting on hold for months. I recall speaking with him while on CDO. SMH
  8. Had a guy in my WOCS class who was mid-thirties going AD AV. He was also a lawyer.
  9. All I can confirm is that it wasn't an option for prior-service as of August 2014. I wanted that sucker so bad.
  10. You got it! I didn't bring a single one. With a combination of the ones that are stuffed in wall lockers from candidates past and the ones you'll get your ACU's back on from laundry, you'll be fine. Nope. I brought mine that was way nicer than the issued one from CIF but due to uniformity issues, it sat in the security room the whole time. No static items allowed. Anything above and beyond the authorized amount must either go into the security room, trash or your POV. The WOC SOP will advise the MIN required to be displayed and if you don't have that due to them being in laundry, you'll have to fill out a DIM (Display Items Missing) Card. Once a week you're required to go to the shoppette and get haircuts which is next to clothing sales. There, you'll find any supplies you will need. Per the WOC SOP, they can be any of the authorized colors. I saw folks with brown BCT style ones or white boxer briefs. Don't remember anyone getting crap for what underwear they wore.
  11. My buddy graduates today. The last few weeks its been in the upper 30's at night there. Felt bad for him!
  12. Sooo it is 70 degrees currently in South FL where I'm at. Sitting here thinking about how cold it'll be at 0400ish on the 24th of this month running that 2mi at Rucker. Looks like there's a 25 degree difference in temperature at the moment. Guess that's one of the few downfalls of living in FL-having to acclimate to a colder environment.
  13. Must I screen shot that text message suggesting I inquire on here? PS: I acquired the info requested. Thank you all for your time.
  14. Neither the WOC SOP or the WOCC website outline the details. If there are any WO1's here who attended either this or the last FY and still have theirs, please PM me. My class is trying to get ahead of the game. V/r, P
  15. I know it has been published. However, does anyone have a PDF copy yet? If so please PM me.
