  1. Depending on what you fly, I prefer to just use the aircraft lights. Lip light is annoying to get shined in your face when someone forgets to turn it off and turns to look at you. Also a good target to get yourself shot in the face on approach if you find yourself flying in combat. I used a Sietz filtered white finger light for a short period and found it useful for switch identification.
  2. No one really cares which model iPad you use. I personally like having the cell plan on mine, makes it easier to update weather, notams, etc. on the go.
  3. Its not hard at all to keep track of how your peers are doing throughout the course. If they are active they are probably just as curious about your performance as you are about theirs. Once my class finished the pt test and we got our final grades we all posted our GPA on a group chat to see how it stacked up.
  4. If you have time just walk in to any army recruiting station and ask if they can pull your REDD report. Only takes about 2 minutes
  5. I did pubs, super easy. You have to work two days out of the whole course, day one issue and the last week return the pubs.
  6. The two guys that got the echos were two add ins that were from a previous class.
  7. Yesterdays selection COs: 60M - 2 64E - 2 47F - 4 C12 - 2 WOs 64E - 2 60M - 3 47F - 3 C12 - 4 Order for warrants went 47, 2 c12, 47, then 60. I forget the middle but the echos went last. Most people got what they wanted.
  8. I wont be surprised if my class ends up stacked with apaches next because of this. This was the perfect selection for what everyone in my class is hoping for. Oh well, needs of the Army..
  9. I have a couple friends in my class that are living in RVs. The common motivation is that if you set it up correctly, the 18 months you are here for flight school you can use bah to pay off an rv you can take with you. The rv park outside the enterprise gate isnt too bad and I believe it was about $350 a month.
  10. The only block leave is for the holiday season. They are pretty good about letting people go on leave during bubbles though.
  11. First off 90% of what you stated is untrue. The information you posted will only hinder a potential applicant from completing this process. Recruiters/MEPS have zero control over enlistment bonus and incentives, big Army sets policies and bonuses. I promise that no recruiter cares about the Army profiting from an applicant not getting a bonus, sadly the most important thing to a recruiter is putting numbers into the army. Also, you either qualify to receive BAH or you do not, there is no negotiating with a recruiter on this matter. While attending flight school you will be afforded the opportunity to live where you please, as stated above you will temporarily stay in the barracks during certain phases of training. I can kind of understand how you were just trying to be helpful, however this information is far from being accurate.
  12. If you are on active duty and dip into your GI bill, the Army will not pay you bah twice.
  13. We were talking to the student management officer last month and she said that they are going to try and limit the 64 options for the 67 classes. She said something about no NVG time in the 67 but that didnt make much sense to me.
  14. I second living in Bowden Terrace. It makes this whole process a lot more convenient in my opinion. The housing is actually pretty nice for on post as well.
  15. the only one I know is a 47 went first.
