  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 have been talking to my local recruiter about becoming a Warrant Officer. Luckily, there was another person there who was waiting on approval for his packet. He suggested I check out VR and ask as many questions, and research as much as I could. He then gave me some papers to study. I understand there is quite a bit to learn, so I want to get started on studying and learning about aviation. To whomever is reading this, what study materials (Books, websites, et c.) would you recommend? Thanks!
  3. Just looking for some guidance as my Phase 2 was sent in about 2 weeks ago to Rucker. Does anyone know if there is a site that is current and working to check the status of submitted physicals? Ive been trying to get onto https://vfso.rucker.amedd.army.mil for the past week with no luck so I'm thinking this website is no longer active. If anyone knows otherwise I would greatly appreciate it!! Thank you.
  4. Hi all, I am currently finishing my last semester of undergrad in Louisiana. My recruiter told me one of my LOR absolutely has to come from a pilot. I have no pilot contacts. How should I got about getting this LOR. Can I show up on a base and start asking around? Can I call someone? Thank you for the help, AH
  5. Hello, I'm currently close to coming off a deployment and am close to starting the application process for a number of jobs. EMS seems like a good fit for me due to the mission set (rewarding), stability (family man), and scheduling (flexibility). I'm currently in the National Guard and plan to continue that until I reach 20 years at least, which for me is about 10 more years. I'm a little shy of most companies minimums with ~1700 hours total time, close to 600hours NVG/Night time, and with less than 100 hours of WX time. I'm an Instructor (CFI/CFII rotary) and have a lot of recent exper
  6. Hello everybody. I could really use some advice regarding my situation in how to best become a commercial helicopter pilot. I am Fixed Winged Private Pilot. I'm currently a sophomore attending a 4 year private university with a major in Criminal Justice. After losing interest in the Criminal Justice field, I'm back on track to eventually fly as a career, helicopters specifically. Is it necessary or recommended to have a 4 year degree to be a commercial helicopter pilot? Does an aviation related degree make better or can in just be in anything I might be interested in outside of aviation? In do
  7. First off thanks to anyone that took the time to read this. I'm an USAF E-4 in the medical corps and I've been working on my packet for about 4 months now. Studying the FAA handbook as well as Fundamenals of Flight (Army FM 3-04,203) for the SIFT for about 30 mins a day command won't let me test for the SIFT until after I have cleared the flight physical. I got a flight physical sometime this month (helps that I work in an hospital). PT has never been an issue. I'm OCONUS and I'm PCSing to CONUS in January. Headed to Florida not to mention I sew on E-5 in June so extra leadership courses are
  8. This is the dilemma. I am active duty Navy and I have recently been selected into active duty WOFT. While I was putting In my package I was advised to interview for the national guard as well. Turns out I was selected into both. My conditional release states that if I am selected for Army Warrant then I am good to leave the Navy. National guard says as soon as I swear into meps, I am part of the Guard. They simply call the Navy and have them change my EOS and they'll send me a DD214. Seems off. Anyone have any insight to this. I've searched high and low, and nobody seems to have gone from acti
  9. As the election comes to a close, and a Trump presidency seems to be on the horizon, I'm interested in the political views of the military community, and how the president influences the lives of those currently serving. I myself am a Clinton supporter, more out of default than anything. I think that Trump risks ruining our international relations, both by becoming isolationist in foreign policy and ceding our hegemony in ME and Ukraine to Russia. I view him as unstable and unfit in temperament to be commander in chief. As for Clinton.....where do I begin. I think that we can run the risk
  10. I recently graduated from college and would like to fly rotary wing in the Army. I have been working with a recruiter to put together my WOFT packet. I am needing help getting a LOR from a CW3 or higher in the aviation field. I am willing to do a phone interview, skype or travel to an Army base to assist in the process. I am a civilian and I do not know any warrant officers. Looking for help any way possible. Thank you. I scored a 78 on my ASVAB with a 114 GT. I have not taken the SIFT yet. I am waiting to hear back from Medical about my Lasik. I have been studying for the SIFT from three d
  11. Hello all, This is my first posting to this website and I am happy to be here! I am currently working on my package for WOFT in the Army and I thought this would be a good place for information and to make contacts that could help me in the process as well as establish a place where I can help people in my same situation in the future. I am an E-7 in the Air Force as an Assistant Fire Chief. I have always wanted to fly helicopters and have finally decided to go through with it! Stats: Age- 30 SIFT- 61 AFPT-No Army PT score but I have a 100\100 on my last Air Force PT test 2 months ago AS
  12. Making or planning to make the military to civilian transition? Don't make the same mistakes I have - I've made a lot of them so it's a long one. Everything in here is based on personal opinion and experience. Just hoping to help my fellow veterans.
  13. In preparation for the APFT I noticed my iPod was a little dry and lacking some decent workout tunes. Doing fitness to Marky Mark and The Funky Bunch and Meatloaf didn't cut it today so I was curious as to what's on your workout playlist? Some new additions today: 1. Disturbed - Down With The Sickness 2. Drowning Pool - Bodies 3. DJ Snake vs. Upon A Burning Body - Turn Down For What (Nightbird Remix) 4. Steve Aoki - Wake Up Call (Peacetreaty Mix) 5. Rob Zombie - Dragula 6. Powerman 5000 - When Worlds Collide 7. Skillex ft. Sirah - Kyoto 8. Metallica - Fuel 9. Eminem - Till I Collapse (2pac
  14. I graduated flight school a few months ago from the 64 course and finally going to log my flight time, I received a print out of my hours during every phase before leaving. I have logged my time into an electronic logbook but want a paper one as well. So what civilian logbook do you use, and is there a specific reason you picked that one? Also would it be ok to log all my 64 time as one entry to get caught up, as an entry like forwarding from a past logbook since I have the printout from Rucker to prove it?
  15. Can anyone help? My life mission is to be a helicopter pilot. Here is my story. After graduating from college and securing a job as a financial aid dept. counselor, I worked for four years and decided that the desk environment is just not for me. At 29, My lifelong goal of becoming a professional helicopter pilot was always lingering in the back of my mind. I visited a local Army Recruiter's Office and started working on my WOFT packet. I went through and passed the required aviation tests, a flight physical, and passing scores on a physical fitness test, an Officer application, letters o
  16. 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
