  1. What is the meaning of the unrestricted side of the house?
  2. Time to check it out on You Tube: Army Talent Management Task Force - Warrant Officer Professional Development (12/2/20) Start at the 11:25 mark. If and when implemented, it will be a loss of more than a few thousand dollars as you are promoted through the WO ranks later. The Army is trying it's best in keeping the morale high. I wonder if this applies to Lts as well?
  3. For those Warrant Officer aviators within the limits, active duty AF is still in play. Max age 32 and must have the 4yr degree in attending OTS. A few years ago, the #4 slot pilot (Maj) for the Thunderbirds was a former UH-60 Reserve CW2. With the new ADSO, more than likely not flying in the active duty Air Force as an option unless the Army releases you early. Possible in the AF Res/Guard. They are more flexible.
  4. Hearing rumors that soloing in the UH-72A is now required. So, do you solo alone or with a stick buddy? Is it just one flight? Any solo flights outside the traffic pattern? I assume there is no solo flights in the Grob G 120TP fixed wing trainer.
  5. Thedude is 100% correct. You are learning a very valuable military lesson even before leaving for basic training. The military can always throw you a curve ball at anytime. It was just a misunderstanding on Your part of your obligation. Get ready. There was a USNA graduate a few weeks ago who thought he had a possible NFL contract. He was told he could try out but the Navy changed its mind, no appeal. No problem for the Air Force or Army academy graduate players this year but who knows next year. Don't be too much concerned about the 12yr obligation, that's 12 years in a pilot seat. 1 recommendation, don't resign in flight school on your own account. The Army can keep you for the 10yrs from your resignation date. Graduation rate is in the high nineties. Have your decided on which aircraft you want? Congrats on the selection, you earned it and enjoy the ride in serving ones country. Good Luck.
  6. As a civilian, you are not obligated if not selected. But if he quits or gets kicked out of IERW, he owes ten years from that date if the Army chooses.
  7. Max active duty time in service (TIS) is 8yrs without a waiver.
  8. How much flight time can you get in a Cessna 152 for $1k? 6 maybe 7 hrs. The Army is really going out of their way in protecting their aviation assets, their soldiers from commercial airline harm.
  9. 06Butters What is your reasoning in not going AF Res or AF ANG for fixed wing? Fixed wing time is most preferred in airline hiring.
  10. And you were worried. Congrats Dad and for your son. Obviously he came from good Stock. When is your son's B'day? I think he must turn 18 before attending WOCS. Don't want them too young. Still young enough in flying for the AF after his 10yr ADSO if he so chooses.
  11. I guess getting fixed wing in WOFT is like getting a F-22 out of flight school in the AF. Being an RLO, from time to time, they are given fixed wing transition in taking command of a unit. Be thankful you do not have the 10 yr ADSO in being somewhat disappointed in your Army aviation career. Keep your kidney, you only have 2.
