  1. Has anyone had any experience of being married while at flight school. Particularly owning a house, having your spouse stay at your home of record and receive BAH. My spouse wants to stay in CA as they have a good job. It also would be a hassle move and rent out our home for the duration of flight school. Is there a possibility of me moving, staying on base some how in FT Rucker and receive BAH for my home of record? I know that the BAH if I moved to FT Rucker and the surrounding areas would be around $900 or so and there is a possibility I find somewhere cheaper and use part of the BAH and my W1 wage to pay for my mortgage back in CA. This wouldn’t be ideal. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks!
  2. Good afternoon future Army homies, I'll cut to the point...I was originally slated to report to IERW this Oct. My State (I'm a Guard guy) is now pushing the date back to January 2021 because they believe it is unlikely my accession will get approved in time by Ft Shafter(I think). Does anyone know a point of contact at HQDA? Up until yesterday, I was told and under the impression that I would report in Oct. I have money set in savings to make it until January but it really puts a damper on things to go from 10 year Captain pay to zero income. Now some background on my situation: I am coming over as a non-rated Captain from the Marine Corps, nine years TIS and would of been in zone for Major this Fall. My EAS is 1 Oct 2020. I was selected by my State earlier this year as well as having my age ETP approved and package approved by the Guard Bureau/Aviation Proponent. I will still be brought in as a Captain on 2 Oct 2020 to avoid a break in service and to comply with the interservice transfer I agreed to. The issue is that with the current climate, it could take up to three months to complete my accession from O-3 to CWO-2 with HQDA. I understand where my State is coming from as they don't want to potentially lose the class seat and want to keep their pilot pipeline flowing while waiting on my paper work to get squared away. Any advice, input and criticism will be greatly appreciated. Cheers, Wu
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
