  1. Mine has wings so its still wagging/rocking the wings and usually involves a 60* pitch climb and a 120* roll.
  2. I put the references that should cover the answers to your questions. Vision can be corrected with surgery at your expense to met the standards if needed. Mental disorder history is much less black and white and can't be answered based off what you posted. If you want to be a warrant officer and pilot then start the process and see what happens. It is a 100% no strings attached process, if you do the physical and are not qualified you are not on the hook for military service. Uncorrected vision worse than 20/50 is a disqualifier in accordance with AR 40-501. Depression/mental disorders can be disqualifying depending on type, recency and treatment/outcome. First quote is AR 40-501 specific to aviation, second is DoDI 6130.03 general standards for enlistment.
  3. Unfortunately they keep the records of your flight physicals forever. Last time I logged into AERO my first physical (a disqualification for vision) from 2004 was in there.
  4. LTs aren’t real people and their recommendation carrries about the same weight as an E4 recommendation since they have comparable experience and time in the military.
  5. The FARA will likely draw from AH crews not UH crews since the AH guys actually know how to fly that mission set. Would be a pretty cool to get to fly one but I plan to be retired by the time they are fielded.
  6. If all you like to do is pick stuff up and drop it off somewhere else like a bus driver then you’re set. If you actually like to be a real pilot then go 64s.
  7. Talk about a kick in the balls. Keep trying but understand that from the Army’s perspective it really isn’t worth the risk. You’re going to sit in a machine that specializes in vibrating good backs until they’re bad and you evidently are already started down that path. Good luck, hopefully you can work it out.
  8. I haven't been in flight school for a long time now but I did it with my wife there with me. With one exception (and he ended up divorced) everyone else I went with that was married with kids had their family with them. You will still spend 12 hours a day at your house and every weekend for a year plus. Additionally, you won't likely won't save much money because you will still be paying for a house/apartment for you to live in at Rucker. Factor the $2-300 in gas spent making multiple ten hour roundtrip drives each month to see your family and it just seems like a lot of hardship for very little gain.
  9. If you’re going to sell the house and move the family why not have them move to Rucker with you? You’ll be paying for a house while you’re there anyway, might as well have your family with you for the 1.5-2 years spent in training.
  10. You can arrive as early as you want to Rucker and just not sign into WOCS. You must sign in 10 days prior to the start date but you can take as much leave as you have accrued while PCSing. Make sure you get your current BN/O5 commander to sign your leave form with PTDY to get your extra ten days of non-chargeable leave without any hassle.
  11. Absolutely nothing wrong with it, just a whole lot of people who know nothing running their mouths.
  12. What's the number? Sometimes numbers are recycled after previous aircraft are no longer registered. https://registry.faa.gov/aircraftinquiry/Search/NNumberInquiry
  13. Sometimes you just really, really have to pee.
