  1. I have a friend who is just wrapping up 64 AQC after coming over from 60s. You’ll have to send a memo and 4187 to HRC and will incur a ADSO. PM me, I’ll give you my .mil and get you in touch.
  2. Yeah the title didn’t make sense at all. First off I’ll address the recruiter part. A recruiter’s mission per doctrine (unless it changed again) is to recruit the best qualified applicants for service at the needs of the Army. The key take away is what the Army needs comes first and anything the applicant wants is a distant second. For a long time, jobs were not discussed because the goal was to have a applicant join the Army and what they did wasn’t supposed to affect that, but in the real world that doesn’t work and the Army finally caught on. Him being slow to respond could be any number of things including being a short timer or maybe he just isn’t a good recruiter. Next the scores, if you look online you can find the formula that shows what part of the test is what score and how they go together. As to the taking people with a lower score then required. The recruiter has nothing to do with that. Your talking about a USAREC or G1 Army exception to policy which are extremely rare, think beard waiver for a Sikh. Job wise if he wants to be in aviation and can’t get a slot I wouldn’t pick combat arms unless it’s something he’s committed to. Having been a 11B before I started flying it’s not something to pick as a back up.
  3. Your flight school ADSO is based on when you graduate WOBC and pin on your flight wings. You can review the rules in AR 600-3 if memory serves.
  4. .4 chapter 1, all of 95-1, .93 is where I would start.
  5. So your looking at Fort Campbell KY, Fort Knox KY, or a NG flight doc. So here’s what you can do; 1. Have your recruiter contact the special mission POC and battalion and see if he has a list of flight docs. I know our guy did in my BN. 2. When I was in recruiting our NG wouldn’t help so we took WOFT applicants to Fort Leonard wood. So be prepared for a drive to whatever nearest base will see you.
  6. So I as a forewarning I had no idea what aircraft I wanted until maybe 2 weeks before selection when it came down to 47s or fixed-wing for me (I was top of my class which helped). I did select 47s and after about a year in the community I don’t think I could have picked anything better. It’s a very relaxed environment, everyone actually wants to be here and fly with a minimum of Army BS and the 47 is by far the best rotary-wing aircraft in the Army. We can do things IFR and with our systems to fly the aircraft that the 60 guys dream of. Now I have some really good friends in the 60 community and they say it’s kinda 50-50 some units are good and some are just people waiting to finish their ADSO and pop smoke. When it comes to after you get out. If you plan to fly helicopters 60s may be better, however if your looking at going to the airlines the IFR experience in the 47 would probably be better. If you have any more questions about 47 life let me know And I’ll try to answer them all.
  7. She had a Med tag so it was in her records. It was something we made fun of her for since we couldn’t bring any peanuts in the briefing room.
  8. I don’t recall a allergy panel however, I would tell your “friend” to just hope for a Med waiver and not doing anything stupid because Fort Rucker is in the middle of a huge peanut growing area and when it’s harvest time the peanut dust in the air is no joke. Also I had a class mate with a peanut allergy and she passed a flight phy so it’s definitely possible.
  9. First off I wouldn’t wait six years(I assume) to finish your guard enlistment. Next you can join while in the NG but you will need a conditional release which can be very hard to get.
  10. Check the rules for time on station. We were told we could be there together but my spouse would have to stay 36 months regardless of how long it took me to finish flight school. Branch also made the point of saying that from their perspective being at the same duty station every second assignment was going above and beyond for us. I took that to mean we wouldn’t get any leeway looking to be stationed together post flight school.
  11. You can’t be selected for UAS as that requires prior enlisted military experience. As far as fixed wing that usually goes to the top selectees as it’s generally what everyone wants. If you want RW(rotary wing) you’ll be fine. When it comes to taking your SIFT ECT that comes down to recruiting BN and MEPS SOPs. You should be able to do the tests but not the boards prior to turning 18. Also I had a homeschooled street to seat in my class it’s doable, you just need to have solid LOR that show your leadership attributes.
  12. First off one thing I want to address is the Army does NOT treat a GED the same as a High School diploma, as you can see from the USAREC WOFT Page High school diploma. If the applicant has a GED holder he/she must have required college credit hours to be eligible with Education Code "128", per AR 601-210, 2-7c(7). you will need a diploma or 15 college credit hours to join as a 153A. Next to address your resume, start looking at any extracurricular you did EG sports and think about how they can help your resume as they speak to your leadership potential and ability to work as a team member which many home schoolers lack. last off start the process now it will take longer then you expect.
  13. For the WOs 1 C-12, 2 CH-47s, 3-4 AH-64, the rest 60s. I didnt write it down but that should be close
  14. The waiver for a position of trust IE recruiter is completely separate from a waiver for WO accession. They are however both based on the whole soldier concept so the fact you already made it through one should get you the confidence to move forward. Lastly there are several students here that came straight from recruiting.
