  1. New packet deadline was yesterday! I hope ya'll got yours submitted! AGE : 23 RANK : E-5, 4yrs AD 68W GT : 117 SIFT : 58 APFT : 281 EDUCATION : 65 credits PHYSICAL : Stamped LOR : O-3, O-5, CW5 DEPLOYMENT: 1 WAIVERS : None
  2. Hello all! I am currently putting together a WOFT packet. I have a few letters of recommendation from people who know me, however I've heard to be competitive I should have a letter from an aviator preferably a CW4. I was wondering how accurate this is. I don't know any aviators but would be willing meet with one for a conversation/interview to see about getting a letter of recommendation. I live in GA, within easy driving distance to Ft Benning, Ft Rucker, Hunter Army Airfield etc. Is there anyone on this form that would be willing to meet with me at your convenience for a possible LOR?
  3. Hey ya'll. I know its still pretty early but I was just wondering if anyone was able to submit a 153A packet for the upcoming September 2020 board. A lot of the people I've been talking to who are getting packets together are being held up by their flight physical due to COVID. Understandably, it seems flight physicals are pretty low on the TMC's priorities right now.
  4. Figured I’d start the March 2020 stat board. It’ll creep up fast enough after the holidays. AGE: 32 ASVAB GT: 112 SIFT: 46 APFT: 296 ACFT: 565 EDUCATION: 49 Credits AA, Exercise Science, Private Pilots license (no live flight yet) FLIGHT: None, currently enrolled in local flight program will have flight hours to drop for last minute additions deadline LORS: O-3, 0-5 x 3, CW5 (154FF) OTHER INFO: Active Duty, E-7 (2 years TIG), 11B, 13 years TIS, 42 mos Iraq and Afghanistan PHYSICAL: At Rucker, no waivers WAIVERS: Age, AFS, Moral Intere
  5. Good Afternoon. I’m a recent candidate who was attrited from Navy OCS (contracted as Student Naval Aviator/SNA) due to reasons beyond my control. Months after my separation, I am now due to meet up with a recruiting sergeant (and, possibly, the Warrant Officer Strength Manager/WOSM) in my nearby National Guard recruiting office (same location where the local helicopter battalion is stationed). Despite getting the boot from Navy OCS (I’m also a prior service Aviation Electrician from a long time ago, hence my quest to try to come back to the Navy), I never gave up my ultimate goa
  6. Hello all, I’m new to the forum (obviously), but I’ve been lurking for a while. I’m an active duty Marine (E-4) with an FY22 EAS. I originally intended to join the military to become an Officer and fly helicopters, but at 17 years old I decided that it was imperative that I gain experience as an enlisted man first before pursuing a commission. I don’t regret my decision to enlist, but now’s the time to start thinking about the next chapter of my life. After much thought and discussion with my wife, I decided that pursuing a greater leadership role and an aviation career is more
  7. Any current Warrant Officer Pilots that have successfully completed a full Interservice Transfer to become a Warrant Officer Aviator they have any advice for me as this has been a true dream of mine to accomplish and now I have the opportunity to do so.
  8. Anyone know if there is a way to check to see if your packet has "Board Ready" status as a civilian other than just waiting on your recruiter?
  9. Hello all, I have a concerning issue I need help with. I am currently completing my WOFT packet. I have my admin portion of my packet complete except for LORs. I still have to take the SIFT and the Physical. I currently require an AFS Waiver and a Moral Waiver. Today I was speaking with a Chief who told me he had to submit a medical waiver for ASAP. I asked him the back story on it. Basically he was refereed and the counselors determined he didn't need to attend. His waiver was approved. No issues it seems. He told me any other way was automatic disqualification. I self referred to ASAP b
  10. I am a civilian going through the WOFT packet for the first time. I have everything together and am shooting for the September Board next month. Who else will be joining? Curious as to how the process has been for yall.
  11. If anybody has any insight or advice I'd greatly appreciate it but currently I'm a 15T in a guard unit and I'm about to finish my bachelors. My overall goal is to go active duty warrant for flight school but I'm not sure how or if it's possible to go from guard to active for WOCS. I already have my flight physical and SIFT done, I just have to finish the rest of my packet and get LOR'S. Thank you guys for your help!
  12. Hello, I am looking for help or advice on how I can receive a recommendation from a Warrant Officer in the Army that flies helicopters. I'm 26 year old and have a college degree, I currently work on an engine in Wildland Firefighting but have a strong interest in flying helicopters with the Army. I have good physical fitness and I'd love the chance to meet with a current pilot and talk. Do you think now is a good time to be applying to the army as a pilot? How is the balance between your work life and balancing that with your personal life? Do you feel you are satisfied with the jobs t
  13. Hello everyone, I am a pretty new member and I am still learning to navigate the forums. I apologize if a similar post has been made elsewhere.

  14. Hello all, I am currently a SPC in the NG as a 15p. I have a 69 SIFT and a 350 APFT, and I'm a Private Pilot working on my next fixed wing ratings. I am on the last step for NG applicants in which I undergo a final interview with the CCWO and a SAO. My 350 APFT was not taken for record, and before I took another one for the board, I sustained a foot injury in marathon training in which I have been unable to run for 5 months. Does anyone know, is an alternate event (such as the 6.2 mi bike), authorized for submitting a WOFT app? Or, any thoughts on WOFT or college first? (I am a college
  15. Would anyone be willing to read, review and offer constructive criticism of my current Resume for the July board? I was FQ-NS and would like some opinions. Please PM me, and I will send it to you directly. Thank you very much!
  16. Hey All, I'm currently a Junior in high school getting a head start on learning what is required to become an army aviator, particularly following the warrant officer route. I am motivated to do whatever it takes to accomplish this lifelong dream of mine. Recently I have been talking to a VT Army Guard recruiter about enlisting into an aviation-related MOS when I turn 17 in April, in order to build time in grade, build relationships within the relatively small unit, and allow me to go to college at the same time, after high school. I've been told all this would look great to the board a
  17. I am currently applying for the Army WOFT. I have been scouring the web and my own networking connections for an active duty Army, Senior WO Aviator (W-3 to W-5) that would be willing to potentially sponsor my package. As some info about myself, I am currently serving in the US Navy as a Petty Officer Second Class (E-5) and have been in the naval aviation field for roughly four and a half years specializing in egress and environmental control systems / safety equipment. I started my package back in June, and have been pushing hard to make the January and March 2018 board deadlines. The on
  18. Hi all, Recently heard about this website and I am immediately hooked. I am hoping to get some feedback on my unsubmitted WO packet for the December board. I am currently in school but will be finished before the board. I am also not contracted in ROTC. No previous military experience. 3.5 years undergrad credit towards Geology Major. 3.2 GPA GT: 130 SIFT: 70 Physicals: G2G Flight time: only a few hours (5 by the board submission) LOR: 06, 03, WO3, Current Employer Age: 20/F Any suggestions on what to put in my letter to improve my opportunities? Thanks!
  19. Hi, I'm currently a Junior in High School looking to get a head start on figuring out what I need to do to fly for the Army. I've been doing a bunch of research, and talking to my local national guard recruiter--she is encouraging me to enlist in the National Guard into an aviation unit and build time until I can submit a packet and become a warrant officer and pilot, etc. I've heard a lot of good things about going active duty through WOFT , "street to seat", as well. My main question is: What, from experience, seems to be the best overall route, and which one leads to more flight time?
  20. Hello! I am a relatively new member to this forum (you can probably see I just created my account today), but I've been reading religiously through the forums for almost 3 weeks now. As the question states, I am currently a contracted MS3 cadet in ROTC, but I've been thinking more and more about trying to go the WOFT route to aviation. I want to fly, no matter what, and with ROTC I don't like the idea of ending up in another branch. I've spoken with my ROTC cadre and they seem to be on board with the idea. I know I'd most likely have to pay back my scholarship, but if it means being an
  21. Hopefully some of the current US Army warrants can shed light on this. Besides individual mission of your assigned unit (attack/Recon). How much actual hands-on flying do NEW warrants get straight out of flight school with the Apache? Is it mostly front seat/gunner-focused for new guys? I understand the front seat has a collapsible cyclic, but is it ever really utilized if you occupy the forward cockpit? If not gunner focused for new guys, do most guys switch back and forth? And finally, How often are you guys doing XC flights to regional airports for a bite to eat? lol - I used to see 12
  22. So this is my second recruiter I've went through trying to get my WOFT application process going (first one claimed I wasn't eligible due to not have prior flight experience and/or military service) and refused to believe that civilians could apply. I spoke with the new recruiter on the phone for the first time today (came recommended) and he basically said that I need to commit to him that I will go enlisted if I don't get accepted to the WOFT program. Then he gave me some long spiel about how the army is all about commitment and that I will have a better chance coming from the inside.
  23. I'd like to know if after one's military service as an Army Aviator if they get access to the GI Bill or if that is only for enlisted guys? Is this one of those instances where you need to fill out some kind of application ahead of time in order to have access to it come retirement time? I ask because a friend and I were discussing today going to flight school for fixed-wing aircraft after his military service and becoming a dual rated pilot. Thanks in advance!
  24. Hello all, I am putting together my packet and being straight out of college, I am lacking in experience to put on my resume. I only have two jobs to list (currently still employed) that I've worked for almost a year now, one for FedEx and the other for a union in Washington D.C. I also started an e-commerce business last year but am hesitant to list it as the company doesnt make any money and am not sure if it would come off as me trying to be a big shot. Apart of me thinks that I should include anything I can while another part of me thinks its not a good idea. Any thoughts are welcome
  25. All input is welcome here but the way I was explained this when asking this question to a former Army aviator was "due to other leadership roles, a regular commissioned officer in the Army who is a pilot fly's less (on average) than a warrant officer pilot in the Army. Commissioned officers who are pilots are leaders first, pilots second and while warrant officers are leaders they are more so considered to be technical experts in their field." I mention this because one of the questions that I envision coming up at my boards interview is " Why do you want to be a Warrant Officer as opp
