I'm currently a freshman in college majoring in aviation. As part of the degree, I will get all my ratings up to CFI/CFII/MEI and I have already completed my private pilot's license. My goal after college is to get a pilot slot in the Army National Guard. I've looked into the ANG a lot, but I am more interested in flying helicopters. Here are my questions: 1. How much more competitive will I be if I already have all my civilian ratings (fixed wing)? 2. I realize a bachelor's degree is not required, however, how much of an added advantage is it? 3. Is the process for rushing units and getting a flight slot the same as the ANG? 4. Is it more competitive to get a flight slot in the Air National Guard or the Army National Guard? 5. How is being a warrant officer in the Army compared to being an officer in the air force? 6. How many days a month do pilots work in the Army National Guard? How much of the work is flying? 7. How often are deployments and how long are they? 8. Is the Army National Guard a good job to have along with the airlines likes the Air National Guard? Thanks!
