Reserve Bases Accepted on the Feb 5 2018 board. Received an email and phone call stating that the unit I wanted to get assigned to in south florida near where I live is full. Apparently the only RESERVE bases available for me to go to are Ft.Worth TX., Colorado Springs, and Schofield Barracks Hawaii. Meaning that after Rucker I would have to move there. If so I would want to be put on Active Reserve to ease the financial burden. Would the military pay for my move? Do I have any other options? Any one had similar circumstances? What would you guys do? FYI fixed wing civy looking to get to the majors soon as well.
I am seeking advice on going from reserve status to submitting my Warrant Packet and going active duty in aviation. Any advice will help. 1) I am currently a reservist drilling with my unit, normal reserve status. 2) My goal is to go active duty with my Warrant Packet. 3) I have been told a few different things as far as how to get into the active side of aviation. a) I must apply as a reservist and go thorough training, graduate, report to a reserve aviation unit, then apply for active duty b ) Get a conditional release from the reserve and submit that with my initial warrant packet, then get assigned an active unit after I graduate, given that I fulfill all of my proper training. I think that is the basis for the scenario I find myself in, and I am having lots of trouble with figuring out what to do. I am aware of waiting for slots, but I have been told I will have to wait nearly a year just to submit a packet. If there is any advice or contact info or anything it will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
