  1. Thanks for the information! As I do more research WOFT is looking more and more attractive... If you don't mind, how did you go about attaining good LORs and networking yourself to get them?
  2. Hey All, I'm currently a Junior in high school getting a head start on learning what is required to become an army aviator, particularly following the warrant officer route. I am motivated to do whatever it takes to accomplish this lifelong dream of mine. Recently I have been talking to a VT Army Guard recruiter about enlisting into an aviation-related MOS when I turn 17 in April, in order to build time in grade, build relationships within the relatively small unit, and allow me to go to college at the same time, after high school. I've been told all this would look great to the board and help with LORs when I eventually apply for WOFT. Last month I took the ASVAB through my recruiter, getting an AFQT of 97. On the other hand, I've searched and read-up on the whole process for WOFT straight out of high school, and that option looks particularly attractive as it would mean flying active duty with a shorter route to get there. In your experience, which option seems the better choice as far as getting selected for training, and how feasible would "street to seat" WOFT be without a degree? Also, if I were to join the Guard, is switching to active duty after getting my wings a possibility? Any information on this or even the process would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much, --Mike
  3. Thanks for the info! If I were to apply for WOFT during my senior year of high school then, would it be through a normal active duty recruiter? I've heard they typically aren't very good with the packets. Is there a special recruiter or something?
  4. Hi, I'm currently a Junior in High School looking to get a head start on figuring out what I need to do to fly for the Army. I've been doing a bunch of research, and talking to my local national guard recruiter--she is encouraging me to enlist in the National Guard into an aviation unit and build time until I can submit a packet and become a warrant officer and pilot, etc. I've heard a lot of good things about going active duty through WOFT , "street to seat", as well. My main question is: What, from experience, seems to be the best overall route, and which one leads to more flight time? Thanks, I look forward to reading your responses! --Mike
