BM1 Posted September 10, 2013 Report Share Posted September 10, 2013 Spoke with a recruiter about WOFT, and he said that since I am still in the navy reserves, I would have to wait until I am completely seperated before I could even start the application process. Essentially that the warrant officer program was different than just trying to switch branches, and that there was no way to release me from one contract if accepted for flight training. That if I was on active duty, I could use a DD368 and come over, but not from the reserves He did say however that if I were to come over on the enlisted side (Which is my backup plan if the chance to fly falls through) That they could immediately begin that process and wouldnt have to wait. If this is in fact the case, im faced with the choice of would it be better to enlist, knock out BCT and then try to apply from the inside in order to prevent waiting around for a year. Im 30 now, so time is running out. Does anyone know the success rates of people applying in the army vs from the civilian board? Or has anyone been let out of a sister service specifically for the warrant officer flight program. I know plenty of folks who have made the jump from enlisted-to enlisted side. I think my biggest fear is waiting around, being completely separated from the navy, not being selected, and then unable to get back in the army or navy. (based on current budget uncertainty, age or whatever) I'd really like to go from one straight to the other with the only time spent as a civilian would be taking the oath again. Any advice is appreciated. Ive just gone through PRK, so I have a little time to wait anyways, but id like to have a plan once that day arrives. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
