  1. Hello everyone. I’m currently finishing my first year at Virginia Military Institute. I’ve always wanted to become a warrant officer pilot. Although I enjoy VMI and participating in Army ROTC. I have no plans to commission and would like to apply for WOFT after this year. My question is, do I have a good chance of getting in without a degree? If so, when should I apply? I finish school this May. Thank You! -Age: 19 -GT: NONE -SIFT: NONE -APFT: 290 -MIL: NONE -Civ Ed: (High School) Fishburne Military School (College) 35 credits from Virginia Military Institute GPA (2.6). -Physical: should be good… -LOR: Army Special Operations (Lieutenant Genearal-Ret), 160th Flight Surgeon (LT Colonel- Ret) That’s what I have for now.
  2. I am seeking a job as an Army National Guard pilot. I currently have a single engine fixed wing PPL with about 90 hours. I flew for a couple hours in an R22 and was hooked on the idea of flying rotor wing! I'd love to fly helos for the military, but my big concern is my airsickness problem. While flying cessnas in getting my PPL, I would get extremely airsick. If it was turbulent day, I would even vomit flying straight and level at times. I honestly haven't flown enough in helos to know whether I'd get sick in one, but I imagine the feeling is somewhat like being in a small fixed wing aircraft. I have about 90 hours flying cessnas, but my problem airsickness hasn't really gotten better. Although flying on a relatively sporadic basis (once or twice every couple weeks) I never got over the problem even while in training to get my PPL. My question is this, has anyone who has been through flight school at Fort Rucker observed anyone with severe airsickness problems such as mine? If so, are there methods implemented to help those students overcome their airsickness problem over time. If I still get sick flying in cessnas, is a good idea to try to go to flight school with the Army, or will I be setting myself up for failure? I'd appreciate any advice/opinions on this matter.
