  1. according to the Warrant Officer Recruiting Website....any MOS may apply to WOFT. so it seems like your recruiter doesn't know or doesn't care to help you achieve your dream. Recruiters are constantly trying to reach their quota..and as a WOFT applicant you don't give them their "numbers" it sux...i had my recruiter telling me that i wouldn't make it...and that i should just enlist....i damn near cursed him out... at any rate...find a new recruiter..go to him armed with all the info from the site that i posted the link for below... Now regarding the moral waiver...it seems from the warrant officer recruiting website that its just a matter of resubmitting the correct waiver...and I understand that you did that. Was the moral waiver itself approved? If not then i could understand why you weren't selected...however if the board didn't believes that the new waiver is a new charge or something that omitted then it looks bad. if there is a possiblity that the waiver thing is fixable then with your resume i would assume you'd be good to go<--my opinion. check out http://www.usarec.army.mil/hq/warrant/prerequ/WO153A.shtml that website helped me get selected--as i had to walk my recruiter through the entire process...and keep him focused.

  2. Hey the only I can add to this amazing post is that the fixed wing slot is available to outstanding pilots at selection of advanced airframe. So fresh out of ierw you are able to compete for fixed wing slots if available.

  4. B co and Dco have the most motorcycles by percentage in the Army. We all pretty much ride....its a great way to relax and the CG rides as well... just be safe...do the saftey course...get it inspected 4 times a year and your good....we always go down to Panama City Beach about 10-20 bikes deep...its a great time.
  5. Hey L-boogie...whats up? sorry i missed you here at rucker....but...thanks...keep on keeping on!!! dont give up no matter what.
  6. I started the application process in Aug of 2007-Finished July 9th 2010 Its worth the time.
  7. To those interested in Army Aviation understand that the completion of WOCS then WOFT is the most satisfying accomplishment of my life. Its hard work, stressful, and can be a bit overwhelming, however it is possible to make it thru. If you are at the beginning of your packet process or have already been accepted to the program--maintain your dedication and persistence throughout these next 1-2 years. You'll understand after that although you've been jammed packed with info, you'll still have tons to learn when you arrive at your unit. Good luck with your application and careers. To all the "old timer posters" thanks for all your help over the last 3 years...i guess i'm the old timer poster now... SCOUTS OUT!
  8. You just answered your own question. Its your essay and all you have to do is answer the question. "Why do I want to become a US army aviator?" Its your essay...write how your moved to write it. you have to look intrinsically and decide the answer to that question. What your good at and what you want to become aren't always the same (although they can be). Good luck. AviatorQ Fort Rucker, AL KIOWA WARRIOR SCOUTS OUT
  9. all about the EAGLE SCOUT!!!! lol. as Lindsey said nice stats.be cool with the board...have questions prepared to ask them. officer related questions helped me... WOpilot is correct...be yourself. you'll do fine. good luck.
  10. believe it or not the hardest part of the entire process is the application process. you came to the right place for advice though...you'll find countless discussions on what you have to do. Everyone has answered you correctly...no college isn't necessary, but it helps. Prior service as an enlisted service member isn't required either...although some recruiters might make you think otherwise. if they tell you that you cant come in "street to seat" then find a different recruiter. and if they have a problem with that, then have them contact any of the warrants here or on the recruiting website.(we'll set em straight) speaking of which...chk out the warrant officer recruiting website (google it). it has a lot of info that you can start diggin through. like i mentioned earlier...the application portion and board portion of this process is typically the longest and toughest. Not cause its difficult, but it requires you to follow through on tasks and have the where-with-all to see it through to the finish. good luck!
  11. Wayne, I was air force for 6 years...switched over. I love it. 3 star general helped me out. get all the BRASS you can for your letters...as long as the are not generic and they touch on you as an individual you are good to go. Are you wanting to become an O-grade officer or warrant? what was your afsc in the air force? oh never mind i see your a f-16 crew chief...sweet man. get some of them aviators to hook you up.
  12. you'll get it right after wocs graduation. 10 days house hunting... my reccommendation is to have your wife look for spots now...get a place in enterprise...daleville is a bit country...its cheaper...but country. then when you get your 10 days you'll have your place..and all you'll have to do is move in (or hopefully you can get to post early from ft sill and have your stuff already moved in) and chill for 10 days. Congrats..
  13. i had to turn my head for my physical at rucker...as far as the "probing" of the "rectal cavity" nope didn't have to. lol all this to fly something that doesnt want to fly... lol its worth it though...
  14. hey whats up...I know for a fact that in the guard you can. you have to visit your state guard recruiting website/ recruiter. and tell them you want to fly as a warrant. as far as the reserves...http://www.usarc.army.mil/retn/acc_poc.htm <--go here find your region number and call them. also find a recruiter in the area and tell them. you want to go warrant. they'll fill your head with all this nonsense about becoming an enlisted soldier first..then putting in your packet...tell em no dice....tell them you want to be a warrant period... i came in as a civilian (i was air force initially then had a break in service) the process might be long..but its worth it. i love flying... if you want it bad enough you'll do whatever it takes to make it. thats part of the process of elimination..so dont give up.. hope this helps -WO1 Q
  15. yeah that happened to a lot of my buddies down here...if your orders don't state that you can move your stuff down here and/or family, you can get them amended here at rucker...during wocs...no biggie... then you take your 10 days "house-hunting" by the way i live on post....its cool...but not worth the bah. lol..except that now they're offering all sorts of incentives..to live on post... off post is more economical and the drives on/off post aren't bad...
  16. LOL---THats all B-CO nonsense. Not even a month ago the commander of Flight School was like "...we need to more and more people through cause were falling behing our goals." As a class we even asked him if it was true that the branch was over strengthed or if there were too many WO's or LT's here in Flight School. He plainly said and i paraphrase "No that's not true...and we need more people. Even Secretary Gates was like, yup lets bring more money here to put more people through. LOL B-CO scare tactics LOL... almost as good as the Saturday morning dog chains and id check. LOL They say things like that b-co to scare people straight... but your right...enlisted experience is good...and as you said, not necessary. CLEAN, Any way if you want to fly for the Army---GO FOR IT. bottom line if you dont try you wont know if you'll make it. DO your packet, invest the time and effort and see where that gets you. Part of the process in applying is seeing if you have the wherewithal to finish the process. Good luck.
  17. YUP A TON OF BIKES...but now they're inspected once a quarter..and if your caught with no inspection...your license to ride is revoked on post. also..the cops just started giving tickets to bikes parked along the curved curb of B-CO parking lot or if they're two bikes to a parking spot. INSANE.
  18. Thats about right. I graduated last october from wocs..and no ONE knew the WOC SOP by heart completely...NO ONE. there wasnt enough time to memorize the entire thing. check out our WOCS video so you know what you have in store...its exaggerated but WOCS is no big deal. as far as living here...for primary im on post. i love it...but were getting screwed with picerne and how much they're taking. They take all of your bah minus 100 bucks. (picerne is the housing company on post) if your married i think they take it all. my roomate and I are moving off post in about a month. we'll be done with primary and only pay a fraction of what we've been paying. we both pay about 854 a month to live here. thats 1708 a month that picerne is making off of us...we found a place off post for 800 bucks total plus utilitles...were looking at 950 tops...462.50 per person...and off post..cant beat it.
  19. lol...yup you have to appreciate oxygen and water, and not be able to fly without the use of machinery. speaking of which...the Chief Warrant officer of the Branch here at rucker, wrote an article in the last Quad A magazine. He states that he was the one to up the standards for WOFT. i'll try to find out here what the new standards are.
