  1. Hey, I have recently been looking into starting helicopter flying lessons and I have been looking into Glacier Aviation Flight school in Olympia, WA. I have visited a couple times and it seems great and Mike the owner is very helpful and seems like a good guy. Of course, they would sell themselves to a prospective student who is about to give them 80k, so I was wondering there was anyone who has gone through it or knows anything about them to see if there are any downsides to the school. All the reviews I have read on here seem good as far as I can tell, but it is a big decision and I woudl
  2. Hello all, I am currently a SPC in the NG as a 15p. I have a 69 SIFT and a 350 APFT, and I'm a Private Pilot working on my next fixed wing ratings. I am on the last step for NG applicants in which I undergo a final interview with the CCWO and a SAO. My 350 APFT was not taken for record, and before I took another one for the board, I sustained a foot injury in marathon training in which I have been unable to run for 5 months. Does anyone know, is an alternate event (such as the 6.2 mi bike), authorized for submitting a WOFT app? Or, any thoughts on WOFT or college first? (I am a college
  3. I had this critiqued awhile ago by a current warrant from this forum. I have finally gotten back my stamped physical and want to touch up my packet as much as possible before I am able to submit it. Please be honest, its much appreciated! To call ones self an Army Aviator is a great honor and responsibility. The legacy they have carved is unmatched. I have seen first hand the impact they can make for our ground forces. I hope that my qualifications will afford me the opportunity to one day call myself an Army Aviator and make an impact myself. Being enlisted as a horizontal engineer has pr
  4. Ive always dreamed of being a pilot I just turned 18 and graduated high school 4 months early moved out of my small hopeless town in with my aunt just got my first job which pays 27k a year not including $0.50 raises every 6 months an no overtime which is in high demand at work. Even today at 18 years old I still run outside at the sound of something flying over but mainly helicopters as I like their versatility over fixed wing planes. I could use some guidance on starting my flight career. I see two options hopefully you guys can open up some more options or elaborate or give insight on my o
  5. The only thing I have left to receive is my flight physical. I had a few things I had to get cleared for and now it's waiting on the flight surgeon at my duty station to do whatever he does before sending it to Rucker. My question is are there any recent applicants that had their flight physical submitted and was told 2-3 month turn around rate? That seems kind of ridiculous. I'm seeing people on here receiving them within 48-72 hours of submission. This is the only thing determining which board I turn my packet in for.
  6. I am looking for advice. Currently I am looking at around 1 year total time of putting my Warrant Officer Packet together. Due to field training, extra appointments to be cleared for my flight status and LOR set-backs. Currently the only thing I am waiting on is my flight physical to be sent to Rucker and returned. Rucker is saying it will take 2-3 months to get the physical back. Is there any possible way I or someone else can do to speed this up. Due to OPSEC reasons, I can't give out information, but I am going to training soon and a deployment. I would really like to get this physical back
  7. Hello everyone, I'm a new member on this group. Looks like a great forum. I need some help. I wish to become a helicopter pilot and would really appreciate your guidance. (background:I'm in my second last year of engineering from India) I had the following few questions in this regard: Your help is much appreciated.  Which country has the best institutes for helicopter training?  Among the institutes in the recommended country which are ranked on the top?  Which helicopter should one train on?  Which is the best terrain for helicopter training?  Are there any special requirements for
  8. Hello my name is Austin, I am currently trying to fill out my packet for WOFT and I have a couple of questions for people in the flight community. Ultimately, my end goal is to be an army aviator and I know there are many paths to take when pursuing this. I know Street to Seat is one way, OCS is another and then there is WOCs for enlisted. I have heard pros and cons of going each way and I was curious as to what you all think is the best. My recruiter keeps telling me to go in as an Enlisted then apply for WOCs once I have some experience under my belt. My only fear with this being that I
  9. Hello ladies and gents, I've been perusing the forums on here and this has to be my favorite site who seems to have the most info and helpful people.(sorry for the length) My name is Randy, I have done a ton of research into this program for a couple months now. I am currently a civilian EXTREAMLY interested in the WOFT. Yesterday I took the time to actually go see a recruiter, although everything I saw online said they wouldn't be much help because they will be pushing me to go enlisted and transfer over. Yes my recruiter did in fact try this with me but I do have a feeling he will be
  10. With all the flight schools offering different types of training aside from the norm(private, instrument, commercial, CFI, and CFII) what other training should a new pilot try to get. For example night vision, long line/external load, mountain flying, turbine transition... Also, does it really matter which piston helicopters you train in? Is turbine time during training going to be beneficial down the road? In other words,, after the schools are done feeding you their sales pitch, what's the most essential training and in what aircraft?
  11. Hi my name is William Fine. I am trying to raise some money to pay for the rest of my CFI/CFI-I training. I currently have 186 hours, and haven't flown in over a year. I have been working but its difficult to save up the necessary money on top of living expenses. In addition to raising money for the training, my goal is to start a clothing brand for helicopter pilots. Any additional donations will go towards starting Rotorhead apparel. I will come up with more designs, colors options, sweatshirts, hats, beanies, and set up my own e-commerce website. Please help me follow my dreams and finish
  12. Wow it has been entirely too long since I have had time to post here. I hope everyone is doing well and keeping safe out there. My current topic comes from some recent vacations where I have seen more and more of those bright orange/red balls suspended on power lines. (for anyone unsure of what I mean:) So here is my inquiry, these work extremely well of day marking of power lines, especially where long runs might not allow a pilot to see a lit tower when in close proximity to the line itself. So if these simple plactice spheres have saved live (and I believe they have) why not have a clea
