  1. Okay so its been about 6 of my 12 month wait to resubmit for a moral waiver. Had my hunting waterfowl hunting citation waiver denied, appearently there were enough applicants not needing waivers in the aviation branch, that needing to approve mine was not necessary, ending in a denial. I recently just heard of information from a pretty credible source at USAREC that I could possibly resubmit. Since this denial, I have managed to get my rotorcraft flight instructor license and a college degree. Just wondering but to anyone who might be reading, could a request for reevaluation for a moral waive
  2. I actually was just about to post about waivers, this post made for a pleasant read. Pertaining to waivers I will say this, pay attention to detail, this is where I failed and ultimately got a simple waiver denied and now have another 6 months left on my year wait to resubmit. Here is where I sucked and where I would advice paying close attention so that maybe you might have better results. There is a memo format the waiver needs to be in, take that temple and follow the easy ass instructions. Both my recuiter and myself failed to see this. My product was a 5 sentence statement word docu
  3. If you do decide to get civilian training, Thedude has sound advise but if you decided to obtain your PPL try for a fixed wing PPL. ASEL PPL will run you half the price of a helicopter PPL and a license is a license whether its helicopter or ASEL. 15k is a price if your making all your stage checks accordingly and checkride right at 35-40hr. If your like me, bit of a slower learner, its gonna run you 17k.
  4. Thanks for the perspective on the first portion of your comment. As far as the second one, I got out a couple years ago and figured a degree program with helicopter training was the way I wanted to go and about to finish. I figured if Imma be in school might as well do what I want to be doing. Little did I know my continued wanting to be in military service and coupling that with flying. I just had no clue how difficult it would be getting back in. Thanks for the insight! Im going to wait out my waiver denial and reapply this fall.
  5. I know how to get you selected for flight training with 100% guaranteed chance of acceptance...enlist. Enlist, apply WOFT get accepted cool (your a pilot), dont get accepted apply for a civilian school (you will get accepted and oh your a pilot now). Enlisting will 100% get you in the air no matter how you slice it but if your applying civilian WOFT, beef your packet up. Remember guys, WOFT is not the only way for free flight training. Ill keep saying this, the Army will get you in the air on the controls of a flying machine thats not suppose to be flying.
  6. DM your email for my study material 


  7. Okay, so I have a bit of a dilemma. I was informed during the November Board that my waiver request was denied and I would have to wait a year reapply (I'm the cormorant guy). I learned today that I could have a good opportunity to fly for the TX NG. The process for waivers is different and that I could possibly make this coming board in March. Here is my dilemma. I am a believer that nothing is guaranteed and during my current civilian flight training, my idea was to apply for Active Army as a civilian and use my VA Benefits to reinforce a civilian flight career while obtaining my Bachel
  8. Yeah man, keep pushing till they (the board) tells you no. Stemming off of a previous comment, network amongst your flight school, guaranteed someone was a Army Pilot at one point. Try to get a face to face with the Chief Instructor or Owner. I will be resubmitting this coming November after a waiver denial, stick with the mindset that you will keep trying till someone legitimate tell you no (again the board), that how I am going about it. Good luck man, worse worse case, sign a three year contract, get out and get civilian training paid for by the VA. I have posted in a previous thread, the A
  9. Saw your selection update on a thread. You got denied a waiver it seems, I received a waiver denial. About how soon before the one year mark did you resubmit your waiver before the 1 year mark? Im assuming you submitted the waivers before the one year mark so you would be ready for the soonest possible board (in your case nov). Im just curious your timeline. 

    1. gravityrideseverything


      I didn't plan on submitting another application for active duty again at the time due to my selection with the National Guard. Once I realized I was running out of options, I submitted my active packet. I was over the year wait but I was told at the time of my age waiver denial in 2018 that I could not submit until one year total elapsed. My understanding is that if the board is after the year timeline then you may submit you packet prior to allow for waiver processing. I would just make sure that your recruiter knows your intentions. 

  10. What I have advised poeple to do is be sure when you do about 2-3 hrs of flight training, be sure your instructors applies for a student license for you. Anyone can say they have done DiscoFlight or even say they have 10hrs flight experience. I often times, atleast during what was my applicantion process (denied waiver), I would ask myself would a board member over look this or take it serious. I think certificates of any kind are taken serious, I would think even a student license from the FAA would be taken somewhat serious. In short, if you do decide to recieve light flight training, be sur
  11. So quick update cause I would hate to hear about someone in a similar situation I was previously in concerning moral waivers. I will take ownership in not doing enough in arming myself with knowledge to better navigate this situation. My memo contained to arguements as two why my waiver was denied. First, was that my waiver "did not contain compelling content to support a moral waiver in accordance with AR 135-100." I would highly recommend anyone submitting a moral waiver to look up this regulation. After reading portions of this, I have a better understanding of what should have b
  12. Back seater? Naw Im just at the ass end of my civilian flight training and will be on the employment market soon. I just hope my attitude for Army flight is the same after reaching 1000hr civilian flight time. At that point I might get to caught up in the civilian aviation life. When I say it has been a life dream of mine to fly Army, I mean it. More than likely Ill be back. Could you elaborate on the "limited waivers" topic?
  13. Im waiting for my recuiter to email me the denial memo. One of two thing one from my recuiter and one from a USAREC NCO; one (recuiter paraphrase), memo stated something like there was enough applicants with approved waiver that the need for more was unnecessary (something to that affect but Im skeptical about it), two (USAREC NCO) my incidient was two years pretty much to date and that could have been the disqualifier. Im going to send out an email to the POC on the memo and get the full picture. I beat myself up for shooting that damn bird but hey I pulled the trigger, Ill be the first
  14. Well guys, count me out for the next calender year. Just got notified that my waiver was denied. Im a little flabbergasted by this considering the reason for my waiver but then again I the only one to blame at the end of the day. Hopefully my attitudes to being an Army pilot is still the same this time next year that is if a student pilot hasnt killed me lol. I will have to restart everything from the beginning once next Nov comes about, hopfully to not get denied. Anyways good luck to all!
