I've been through the WOFT application process and have been fortunate enough to interview a couple active duty Warrant Officers. They had atypical first unit experiences.
I'd like to hear from any current aviators, flight school students, recent graduates, etc. I have a few softball questions to pitch after months of reading posts that are pretty recent to severely dated.
How has your experience been?
What was your first unit, what's a typical first unit?
Any regrets or missed opportunities?
Advice for an "older" (late twenties) junior enlisted applicant looking to make the jump?
What's your day-to-day like?
What's it like working at your unit, with peers, etc.?
Did the ADSO change to 8 years? I looked for the most current info in AR 350-100 but I can't find anything to verify a change (i'm sister service and still getting used to where to look).
After flight school, is there pretty much an equal chance of going to any large aviation unit?
Thanks in advance. I know the information is out there (and i've read it) but want ensure i'm as up-to-date as possible.
