  1. In being a military aviator, why is Army aviation your first choice? It shouldn't take up to 1 or 2 years before leaving for flight training. I wouldn't be surprised if the recruiter wanted you to enlist first. A lot less effort on their part in getting a signed contract. Attend college first and graduate. You will have more options in flying in any of the military services. Army aviation is normally the last choice in being a military aviator when you have options on the table. But flying for any military service beats the hell out of sitting behind a desk and possibly dying of
  2. Time to throw your hat in the ring there 339. You have everything to gain and nothing to loose. Having your degree, you can check out the other services in a pilot contract too.
  3. They usually do it at the beginning of the new fiscal year. My prayers go out to all you Warrant Officers aviators.
  4. GM1 Keep your fingers crossed. Can you win twice? You won the 6 year ADSO.
  5. For those who have an interest, view You Tube video clip titled Army Talent Management Task Force - Warrant Officer Professional Development Dec 2,2020. Start at 11:25 in the clip. Last about 2 minutes. No start date given as of TODAY. Potential loss of $7k in salary when implemented but you're still being paid to fly. You're helping in reducing the National debt.
  6. For those who have an interest, view this You Tube video clip, titled Army Talent Management Task Force- Warrant Officer Professional Development Dec 2, 2020. Start at the 11:25 mark for two minutes or so.
  7. GM1 No news regarding the adjustment of the date of rank for WOs. The raadjustment of the DOR includes the Tech Warrants as well .All the legal concerns have bern successfully answered by the Army. Up to the Army when to implement. Are you under the new 10 year ADSO? What month were you selected for WOFT?
  8. Thanks for the possible update for the Commissioned Officer date of rank adjustment. What's good for the goose, is good for the gander.
  9. The new 10 year ADSO was passed in the best interest of the Army period. Tremendous cost savings over the years in retainability and cost savings in less bonuses offered. The Army will call this a Win Win proposition. Future Warrant Officer aviators may not see it that way. It will not have an overall affect in volunteers for the WOFT program. There are more than enough qualified career Enlisted soldiers waiting in the wings so to speak in wanting to leave their undesirable MOS career field. Not requiring a 4 year degree is the Army's solution in meeting their numbers. Every MOS is in pla
  10. Just read that yesterday. They will be getting a replacement for the T-45 in 5-6 years. Wonder if they select the AF T-7A? I doubt it but it could save money.
  11. The military will never go on record but the vision requirements cuts down on thousands of applications. Just like height and weight.
  12. Since you are only trained in thinking as a copilot, you need not be too competent in flight school. Now, I can see why the pass rate is so high. You have no responsible as a flight student. It's always in the instructors hands.
  13. That being the case with civilian instructors, you earn your fixed wing rating and military wings without any military flight instructors. How interesting.
  14. Upon selecting C-12, do you have ANY military instructor pilots throughout the IERW & IEFW course in the pilot seat with you? And from what I understand, it's official now, no solo time whatsoever in IERW/IEFW. Does that mean you always fly with an instructor? Or can you fly with a stick buddy?
