  1. Good Idea! After my USAF flight surgeon "signed off" on my flight physical, the super for Flight med said they wold not submit it due to it being used for Army rather than USAF!
  2. This was a 3 day Cx time building flight with no GPS. Lots of Dead Reckoning flight practice. Weather Brief: winds 0 knots though 18k, Clear skys, no turbulance, 68 deg in mountains. Problems faced: No enroute airports sold maps! Thankfully we took Ipads and an external battery pack to recharge the ipads with. Upon arrival in Mariposa Yosimite we discovered they had suffered a power outage and did not have a manual fuel pump requiring a detour to Merced RGNL.. "look at Merced closely on map" It took my instructor and I nearly 20 minutes to figure out there is an Abandoned Tower at Merced!
  3. Newest hurdle! Turns out recruiter had the 72 hour requirement wrong. We spoke yesterday and he said it ust had to be done today upon arrival he informed me the application had to be turned in by noon today.... maybe next week. additionally, there is a belief that you "Must" have your Army Physical completed before taking the Sift!
  4. Let me start by saying in no way is my experience normal. However, when i am selected for WOFT it will be just another testament that determination can pay off. Four years ago (Jan 2010) i was returning from JBB, Iraq to discover my xwife had moved from Arkansas to California, drained the bank account, and had the nerve to inform me that if i ever wanted to see my son again i would drop everything and move to California. Needless to say i was not in the best place at that time. I decided after drafting divorse papers i would resume college in Montana with the blessing of my unit in Arkan
  5. I am not relying on my ratings to get me in. I was just curious. My back story is 12 years TIS 10 active, 2 deployments. Nothing extradorinary in my opinion but not a bad career. Decided to leave AD do to X-wife medical condition, after divorce and being taken to cleaner by Xwife i decided mid-deployment to go the route of rotorwing (life long desire to eventually work fire suppression and SAR)....My unit said ok and I Attended LEA in Bend Oregon while comuting monthly to south central US for drill, finished in Dec 2013. have been flying part time as a contract pilot of tours for past few m
  6. Thank you all for your input, As for the deadline on the website thank you for the clarification. Here is some additional information i have not previously been able to find and have been able to track down today. Getting your disability compensation suspended, (Mine is 10%)... According to the VA National Service Office (NSO) in order to suspend your benefits you are required to provide a statement from your commanding officer stating that you intend to reenlist in Active Duty and are required to suspend you disability. it must also have a written letter from member with the statement
  7. I would like some clarification as i beleive i screwed the pooch on this one. My recruiter (in an attempt to ensure men we had time to get my packet submitted said that "the cutoff for the Nov Board is Nov 7th". This is completely contradicted on the warrent board information website. 2nd question, if in fact my recruiter gave me bad information as a suspect, is there a chance that the packet can be pulled forward into the Nov board if approved and submitted in the next few weeks?
  8. Out of curiosity, i am currently working on my Packet and like to think that i have a decent one lined up. However, i am curious about how my flight time and certs/endorsement stacks against the average applicant. feel free to add your 2 cents as any comments are just learning info for me. Commercial Rotorwing Instrument Private Fixed wing Part 133 External Load Endorsed Approximate flight times 415, flight hours. 322 rotorwing. 93 fixed wing 27.9 turbine in Bell 206 35 instrument 160 Robinson R22 130 Robinson R44 27 Bell 206 93 Cessna 172
  9. Are you currently in NWARK? i only know of 2-3 206's there one in springdale.
