  1. The street to seaters typically get their results the same week or very early the next week. AD get their results usually Wed-Fri the week after, in a perfect world. If there are any holidays or any Army DONSA’s in between expect results to be delayed.
  2. My report date is 13 June and I was selected in the September board. You mentioned feb-mar range: is this a 90 day deployment? If so you should be fine, they typically schedule us AD guys pretty far out from our selection dates it seems
  3. I got my ATRSS reservation two weeks after I was selected, and my assignment instructions a little over a month after.
  4. All the kiddos including me would love that 👍 Shame the Army retired the Kiowa Warrior. It was a badass menacing looking helicopter with an awesome mission.
  5. A/L’s have steam gauges, M’s are glass cockpit. Also the duty stations for A/L’s are super limited but Japan is A/L only I think
  6. Maybe shoot a DM to Emily Hills on Instagram at @emjoyhills ? She’s a retired Apache pilot with plenty of experience and a couple awesome podcast interviews on YouTube. I don’t know her personally or anything, but I’m sure she’d be a great resource to answer some of your questions or put you in contact with a female pilot who’s still in.
  7. Anyone get their report date? My report date to WOCS is 7 July 2021. Seems so far away 🙄
  8. It’s feast or famine with the Chinooks it would seem.
  9. AGE : 25 RANK : SGT w/ 7yrs TIS GT : 117 SIFT : 61 APFT : 261 EDUCATION : 66 credits, 2.8 GPA PHYSICAL : Stamped LOR : O-3, O-5, CW4 WAIVERS : Medical, approved FLIGHT : No prior experience DEPLOYMENT : 0 AWARDS : ARCOM (1), AAM (4), Air Assault Selected first look. What I think will set your packet apart is really solid LOR’s and a well written resume. I had a really really good LOR written by my Senior Aviator who reviewed my packet and I probably read my resume over at least a hundred times and had dozens of people review it to make sure it was as polished as possible. Sell yourself well, get it looked over by people who’s opinion you hold highly and don’t be afraid to start over again if it sucks (I did several times). Good luck!
  10. I made the list! For those that didn’t make it, I’m praying that y’all make it on the next one. The struggle makes the man (or woman). I’ll be rooting for y’all
  11. This is just my personal advice, and caveat, I haven't been selected yet so take my advice with a grain of salt. It sounds like you have some stuff you need to get straight on your end first so if I were you this is how I would prioritize my time: the first thing you need to do is get yourself straight with height/weight and PT. As a Leader in the Army, physical fitness is important and the Soldiers around you will expect you to lead by example. This is why PT is an important factor for the board. It's free chicken; get yourself on a workout plan, exercise on your own time, quit drinking for a bit and eat right. For the SIFT, buy a good study guide, print off the FAA rotorcraft manual, and study study study. I took 3 months and prioritized my personal time for studying for the SIFT. Take as much time as you need but study your ass off. When you are IAW AR 600-9 go schedule your flight physical and get it done. Remember if you don't have a 40 or above SIFT and an approved 1W flight physical you aren't even a candidate. Focus on these 50 meter targets. In the meantime volunteer for everything you can at your unit. Every range coverage, every school, every board. As a PFC, these are your opportunities to separate yourself from your peers and gives you more material to add to your resume and to show the WOFT board members that you have what it takes. Once you've gotten your SIFT and flight physical taken care of and gotten your PT situation straight and created a positive reputation for yourself in your unit then look at your resume and go from there. We can help you polish up your resume but I think you should focus on polishing yourself first (no pun intended). Good luck and kudos for coming to the right place for questions.
  12. AD has their own MILPER. Usually it rolls out the week after the board, typically Wednesday to Friday if my research holds true.
