  1. I'm going to pursue a helicopter pilot's license with the end goal of making money with it.. How I get my license (military vs civilian flight school) is what I need to decide. What I want to know is: If I stay civilian and go through flight school, am I less likely to find a job as a pilot (let's just say any heli pilot job for argument's sake) than if I were coming out of the military? I want to consider the years of service I would have to do in the military as part of the opportunity cost as well. I understand that military training may be more rigorous but will it make a signifi
  2. Hello, I'm applying to Army WOFT with the hopes of flying UH-60s and starting to work with a recruiter, however I have a few twists in my application that aren't standard. I also need some guidance for my essay. I'm a Civil Air Patrol cadet, and I'll be a C/2dLt by the time I actually sign my contract. I've been in it for 5 years and have been super active, with both flight experience and emergency services experience from it. Would they be interested in hearing about that? Would they only be interested in a few things (e.g. Search and Rescue Find Ribbon, Disaster Relief Ribbon with a V,
  3. Civilian here, working on my WOFT packet for the reserves. I got a meeting with the company commander of a local unit that I'd like to fly for. I'm not sure if it's an interview or an informational meeting, but I'm guessing by how this came about that it might be a little bit of both. Originally, I got in touch with the unit administrator asking what I needed to do in order to be considered for a slot with the unit. She asked me some basic questions and then followed-up later asking for my resume, saying she'd pass it along to the company commander to see if he's interes
  4. What is the process of picking or getting accepted by a reserve unit for WOFT, outside of putting together a packet? Would it be wise to start contacting units near me once I've completed my packet? I asked my recruiter this question and he was honest with me saying he wasn't sure since he's only done active-duty packets, but that doing woft reserves is 100% possible. I've read a lot on here about going guard, but there's not a lot of info on the reserves. My state (FL) does not allow civilians to do the woft program (I asked the wosm) so that's not a possibility since I'm no
  5. ***Update*** I believe I have a better Idea of what the essay is supposed to be now, thank you all for your suggestions on this version! Posting my edited version below in the comments. Hey all, wondering if I could get a little feedback on my essay. I looked at the Army Writing Style publication per a recommendation on another post and made a few tweaks, but want to make sure I do the best I can on it. Why I want to be an Army Aviator Together my personal, professional, EMT, and volunteer Search and Rescue experiences fervently ignited my desire to become an Army aviator. My
  6. *edit* Fairly squared away now. I appreciate the help.
  7. First and foremost - I know that each situation varies greatly depending on circumstance and that many questions regarding moral waivers have been asked and answered. I've been working on my packet for a bit now and I plan on submitting for the May board. I'm waiting for my recruiter to get back from leave next week to submit a moral waiver for me. I was arrested in 2011 at 19 years old for DUI (I won't list the lengthy details unless its needed). The DUI was dropped to wreckless operation of a motor vehicle and transportation of alcohol by a minor. I paid court fines and my license was sus
  8. Hi, I posted on a separate thread and was able to get a very helpful response, however now I've done more research and I have more questions related to a civilian applicant and certain conditions so I wanted to get feedback on my questions and the specific process all in one place. So I just turned 28, civilian, have a college degree, Eagle Scout and a varsity runner in high school. No arrests, a few speeding tickets. Health wise, I'm pretty healthy however, there are the below items: Eyes: Currently 20/200 correctable to 20/20 with glasses, my prescription is pretty low. The reason my eye
  9. Currently in the process of compiling my civilian WOFT Packet. I know you go to BCT, but where do civilian 153a contracts go for BCT? I know its BCT > WOCS > WOFT, and I know the last 2 are obviously at Rucker. But I can't find any information on BCT for civilian 153a's. Any info would be helpful.
  10. I've been going through all the FAQs and sample packet etc on the USAREC website. Alot of the forms seem to be prior service specific. Anybody know if the LORs (specifically from civilian sources) are expected to be on Form 3.3? or if the "optional" (optional...pfffft yeah right!) resume is supposed to be on form 3.2? Or can these be standard word docs for civilians? And I see the FAQ lists the photo as 3/4 length and the Enlistment Program Procedures (civilian spec) lists the photo as full length. Anybody have any guidance? I emailed the recruiting team contact email listed in the contact
  11. Hello all! I would first like to say that this is my first post, and I have enjoyed reading as much as I can handle from this website as I can. (Also, I am new to the forum, bare with me) I am a high school senior to be from Columbus, OH, and will soon be turning 18 in September. I have been interested/obsessed with helicopters for several years now, and it really kicked off with career shadowing day my freshman year at high school, in which I got to bum around a local shop called Helicopter Minit-Men. We stay in touch with the owner and it is an excellent resource, as well as old man - youn
  12. Hello, This is my first post here, so I'm trying to make it a good one. We're all familiar with military search and rescue but is there a civilian counterpart to that? In my research I have found civilian helo's that do search and rescue but never in the U.S. Are there jobs out there where you work for a non-military program that does SAR? And are they abundant? Basically, I would love to work my way up to doing a mission like this or EMS someday, any info would be greatly appreciated, and i'll do my own research from there. I will attach a link I found to civi SAR training: http://www.
