I was selected to attend WOFT this past March and I was so incredibly happy to be able to pursue this as a career. It's an opportunity that I probably wouldn't be able to take advantage of anywhere else but the US Army. Being in aviation currently, I've spoken with quite a few WO's about what to expect in the future. About 80% of them always have something incredibly negative to say about their experience. "All we do is additional duties", "LOL you think you're gonna get actual flight time", "LOL fridge fund nerd", "LOL 8 year ADSO", "LOL OPTEMPO". Is it really that bad guys? I have plenty of experience dealing with additional duties, granted I've done it as an NCO and not an officer. Plenty of experience with high optempo. Is it really that soul sucking to be a pilot in the Army? I've seen nothing but negativity from active WO's and it's incredibly disheartening. I understand that the Army has a way of making most things suck and I understand there's a reason that retention has been atrocious for the past few years, but it just sucks to have people downplay what I think is a great opportunity for me. Is this legitimately something to be concerned about or is it just a very vocal minority being incredibly negative? Anyone have any positive stories to share about their career as an aviator?
