  1. No if she/he has more than 3 years left on the original ADSO.
  2. Adjusting the date of rank hasn't been approved as of yet by the legal department. If it is, for those CW2 passed over for CW3, it won't benefit them in being released from active duty up to 2 years earlier from their 10yr ADSO. I bet they eventually adjust the date of rank for two reasons. 1) Closes the loop hole on those who want out of the Army up to 2 years earlier by being passed over on their account. 2) Saves money by forcing delayed promotions. CW2 approx $8k and CW3 approx 6k.
  3. SBuzzkill Let me understand this policy. Let's say I recently graduated from WOFT with a 10yr ADSO as a non prior service S2S. I selected the TSP option upon enlisting. I'm passed over for CW3 the 2nd time after serving 9.0 years on active duty. Beginning of the 7th month after my 2nd passover I must be released from military service normally as the regulation reads. Always exceptions by the way. My 10yr ADSO would take me to 11.5yrs approximately on active duty. Would I be entitled to a severance package in addition to my TSP account before my 10yr ADSO is completed?
  4. Don't worry too much. Enjoy getting paid to fly different twin turbine engine helicopters in flight school. Besides, everyone graduates as a Copilot. Does anyone know the cost per hour on flying the UH-72A? If you really suck at flying at your gaining unit, you just may be the frig bitch for either 6 or 10 years. 😄
  5. I meant full autos to touch down. That's where you must land just right in not damaging the aircraft. If they bring back solos, hopefully it will be more than just 1 flight. Weren't the students in TH-67A common core prohibited in selecting C-12s. With the aircraft going away, more students have a chance on the few C-12s allotted.
  6. If not, more flight students have a shot at selecting fixed wing C-12. Also, no more solos or autorotations.
  7. Yes, initially the Guard/Reserves is part time employment with the same obligation of 10 years after graduation from WOFT. The Guard works for the state and the federal gov't when dictated while the Reserves are a federal organization. The best part of the Guard/Reserves is that you select your location and aircraft type if approved by that unit.
  8. Submit a packet, you have nothing to loose. Your flight time will not have a bearing on aircraft selection unless going Guard or Reserve if wanting fixed wing. There are times in flight school, the C-12 is not even offered. Personally, I would select one of the helos. A lot more fun and challenging. Are you going active or Guard/Res? 11 to 12 years either way.
  9. The 64K question to ask is this. Do you have a 4 year degree?. If so, try the other services for a pilot slot. The Army should be your last option before applying. Rotary wing experience is not looked upon too favorably in the commercial airline industry. Even though rotary wing is more difficult in mastering initially.
  10. My only recommendation which has been mentioned. Selected another military service. Army aviation should be your last option.Ask any college graduate Army aviator (Commissioned or Warrant) who have the option of flying in any service.
  11. The individual who was informed of his 10 yr ADSO commitment also had in his possession at MEPS the ALARACT 69-2020 msg. It is what it is. He said the 4 additional years doesn't really matter. He wants to do the 20 years. My prayers go out to him. Youth, he's 19.
  12. In another forum , a Sept WOFT Selectee signed his contract on 9/21/20 at MEPS and stated he is under a 10 yr ADSO. It is what it is.
  13. Nil5038 Are you under the 6 or 10 yr ADSO? Have fun being paid in learning how to fly. Bravo Zulu.
  14. For those who were recently selected on the Sept board, congratulations are in order. Were you informed of a 10yr ADSO commitment after completion of flight school vs 6yrs?
