Hello to everybody reading, First off, this website is awesome, there is plethora of info on here. A bit of background of why I am posting this. I am currently a 2LT in Texas Army NG. I am branch qualified as an Infantry Officer. I have been flying fixed wing on the civ side(trying to get my PPL) for about a year now. I never exercised the thought of becoming an Aviator in the Army until a couple of months ago, since I thought to myself it was too late make the switch. A couple of months ago I met a the aviation recruiter for Texas, I just decided to ask him a couple of questions to see if someone like me, who is already branch qualified can switch. Fast forward till now, I am currently building my packet to put in for the April board the State is holding. I have not taken the SIFT (scheduled for Feb) yet, I will update my score on here when I do. Also I will update this thread if anything major happens during my process. I mainly wanted to start this thread, so someone who is in the same situation as me can have a source to go off. Please feel free to comment any guidance. Thank you.

Being the season of football in Texas, I have spent many a afternoon on the sweltering practice field of my school, and recently I had an odd aviation sighting. While we were out one afternoon I noted a helicopter flying over, not anything out of the ordinary except for the fact that the craft was travelling West to East (most air traffic is East to West bound to Love Field). I looked up and took note of what I figured was a Eurocopter EC130, nothing to special within itself, however about thirty minutes later the same helo passed over in the opposite direction, travelling much slower and lower than before. On the second pass I still made out the size and shape of a EC130, but there was NO landing skids! I'm not sure if there might be something I could be confusing this sighting for, but it was defiantly too small to be any of the Eurocopter models with retractable gear, but I know there were panels that corresponded with tricycle style landing gear. Just thought I would share this sighting given its odd nature and our proximity to EC-America's Grand Prairie Plant. I attached a map of our distance to the Grand Prairie Plant ( point A ) and our football field ( point B ) it is about 25 miles as the crow flies.
