Army Flying

Recommended Posts

I know it's been done before but I wanted to expand on some information.


Anyone care to comment on WO flight training? Also curious on pro's and con's of weekend warrior type flying.


I served in the USMC (as a grunt) and have all my ratings. I'm working at a great job but would still like to serve in the millitary again.

"Weekend warriors" have the same miminums as active duty pilots. You will not be able to fly your minimums just doing one weekend a month, two weeks a year. The "type" of flying really isn't different. If you are an H-60 pilot, you have to complete interations of the same tasks as any other H-60 pilot in the guard, reserves or active duty. This of course depends on your unit's mission (air assault, medevac, etc...).


Also, you may do some additional missions as a Guard pilot. For instance, we also do fire fighting.
