  1. All walking Warrants get looked at the first time year 4 then again year 5 right?
  2. Definitely not a deal breaker. I scored a 47 on the SIFT and only had a GT score of 112. Given I had some very strong LORs and an ERB that made up for it.
  3. Hello Everyone, I am currently in the Army, I hit 10 years in July. I was a MH-47G (just a modified CH-47) Flight Engineer for my first 6 years, after which I attended flight school. I flew approximately 1,300 hours as a Flight Engineer. Sadly a year out of flight school I was permanently grounded from flying. I'm attempting to change jobs within the Army, however I am trying to prepare for the worse in the event they medical retire me. I loved flying as a Flight Engineer and actually miss it. Seeing as I cannot fly as a pilot, I am looking at possibly being a Flight Engineer on the civilian side, if I'm forced to medically retire. I know a couple guys I previously worked with did this. I found Columbia Helicopters, but as of right now they do not have openings. I will keep an eye on them in the future. I enjoy the maintenance work, but mostly the actually flying in the cabin. Does anyone know any other companies that offer this job description? I appreciate any help that I may be able to get!
  4. Hello everyone, I'm currently in the Army, I hit 10 years in July. I was a former MH-47G (just a modified CH-47) Flight Engineer for my first 6 years until I went to flight school.

  5. I'm 9 1/2 years Active at this point and finally looking at persuing a degree to pick up CW3 if my time comes. As I've posted before I have been permanently grounded in the Army and may be reclassing in a few months, hopefully not being med boarded I've transferred my military education to Embry Riddle and starting a math and English class in January. As of now I'm going for an Associates in Aeronautics. With my transferred credits I have 27 credit hours towards the required 60 for the Associates. I can't fly but I've always loved Aviation and would love to do something in Aviation when it comes my time to get out. Like I said I'm going for an Associates in Aeronautics but curious what some of you are getting a degree in and what job you hope to get out of it. I hope to get an Engineering degree eventually but lots of the classes I can't do online or at this time.
  6. Something I'm interested in also. I've heard of it but it's like a unicorn, don't know anyone who's actually done it. I was told by a CW5 that the school is stupid long and I'd already be behind all my peers at that point so promotion wouldn't look very good.
  7. Follow the others advice. Once you're 18 you don't need the parents consent. Do you know why they don't want you to join so bad? Are they just worried about their baby boy/girl? That's understandable but I would still support my kids dream if that was the case.
  8. Yeah I got an email right away from finance or somewhere saying that it has been discontinued. I appreciate it though
  9. That is great news! I looked through AR 670-1, but I guess I overlooked it. Thank you!
  10. Yeah it does. I have 9 years TIS now so trying to transition to 150U (UAS) or any other possible walking Warrant MOS. Was planning on 11 more years until being a civilian so no backup plans. Lesson for all, always have a backup plan. You never know what may happen.
  11. It's official that I have been permanently grounded, yeah it sucks. I'm working on trying to find out what MOS I may be able to transfer to, if any. Can I still wear my Aviator Wings and if so how long. I'm sure this is a stupid question and the answer is no. It just sucks to have earned them and lose them after all that work. I know a former enlisted crew chief could wear his wings throughout flight school. Like I said I'm pretty sure of the answer but just want to make sure, also may be in some part denial at the same time.
  12. Only thing I would suggest is request Fort Bragg SERE if you can
