There's a long story behind this, but I'll keep this short and get to the point. I'm 31 verging on 32 and have been considering a career-switch -- aspiring to be an EMS pilot. I work in tech currently, and have a hundred or so hours in fixed-wing, a class 1 flight physical, and some graduate degrees that probably won't be of too much use in this new career avenue. My research tells me that the EMS jobs are probably among the most competitive. I'd probably give it to a qualified military guy any day over a civilian than began is rotary career at 31. Am I too old for this switch?
Quick question for you all: How well can your report date to IERW be predicted when you sign your contract? Do they schedule you for a specific IERW start date when you sign a 153A contract? What if that starting class gets pushed back or cancelled? Does that happen? I'm about to turn 32 early next year and I want to make sure I'll be in a flight school seat by my 32nd birthday. I'm trying to avoid getting hosed, since as far as I know age waivers aren't granted anymore once you turn 32. To put it in context, I'm a ARNG street to seat civilian WOFT applicant. My packet's done, SIFT passed, flight physical stamped, and I'm going to be boarded soon. If they pick me up, from what I've been told so far, they'll expect me to sign a 153A contract. I just want to be sure that when I sign that contract I won't find out later that I'm hosed on timing and forced to do an enlisted MOS. I know that if I flunk out of flight school I'd have to do an enlisted MOS and that would be on me. Thanks!
