To break some of the traditional "selection" and "what if" posts monotony (nothing wrong with those, in fact they have been tremendously helpful) and to get to know some of you, what was it that attracted you to military aviation? Since this is a helo forum, what was it about RW that attracted you over FW? Every time I speak to someone about about helos I repeatedly hear about the inherent dangers of RW aircraft and countless other negatives. Obviously most of you all pressed on despite that, but why? Unlike on your selection board interviews "because it's cool" and "I wanted to blow stuff up" is a perfectly acceptable answer here, though feel free to elaborate. Also feel free to share a few war stories, exciting moments in your career, what you loved/hated about your career, and anything else you feel like adding. One thing I love about being in the ops (flying) side of the Air Force is the atmosphere and camaraderie of fellow aviators and their experiences flying the mission, so I would love to hear more of aviation life from other perspectives. Also, since this is a "General Military Helicopter" forum, are there any other service branches represented here, past or present? I came here for the WOFT stuff, so I appreciate the presence, but has anyone flown for anyone else?
Hey everyone, I have completed my packet for March, however, as of today I have come to a bit of a concerning subject; the essay requirements. I was directed by my recruiter to type a one page essay and have a handwritten copy of it. Today, however, I was told by another applicant that the essay requirements are for it to be one-page-handwritten and then type a copy of that. My deadline for updating my packet is Friday, thus, I am trying to figure this out so I know if I need to get a new essay submitted or not. My questions are: (1) Has anyone made the mistake I have? If so, did it matter (If you were selected)? (2) Lined or blank paper for the handwritten? Neither the battalion or my recruiter have said anything, and while they have been amazing thus far, I refuse to lay my career in their hands when it comes to something I can fix. Thanks for the information!
I was referred to this forum by Lindsey .. here is some of my background.. Hometown – Sunrise, FL Military Experience - None Age - 28 School – Broward College Major – Information Technology Progress Towards Graduation – Graduated Aug of 2012 GPA – 3.8 Sports – Soccer Activities – Running, Bicycling, Swiming APFT: 265 and improving ASVAB: 94% GT: 128 AFAST: 146 Current Progress Towards Application – I am a WOFT applicant. I have been trying to get in the Army for the past 11 months, somehow my application process has been taking this long, and I honestly do not see why. I keep being passed onto a different recruiter, and every time he/she gets my packet, tells me that everything is all screwed up and they have to "fix" a lot of things.. As of last week, I ended up with a new (the fourth one now) recruiter because the guy who has been helping me is on leave and she has still not being able to send my packet.. I just spoke with her and she is telling me that I missed the due date and that the next board is on Nov 5th, with packet cutoff Oct 26th... and also that I might have to take the SIFT.. Are there any recruiters here or anybody has access to this info; who would be kind enough to verify the WOFT packet cutoff and board dates? Honestly, I am getting the run-around at the recruiting station and I feel that there is no progress with my application, nor that I am being taken seriously. I have been very collaborative and patient, but I cannot avoid feeling frustrated about this. Thanks in advance. for the record, I have completed ALL the packet requirements and the only thing missing is the board interview. why can't my packet be submitted?
