And from my recollection the brass collectively said they would rather get pilots sooner, even if less trained, then later. At least thats what they were saying 3 years ago when these changes were in the works.

Brass might say that, but do they ever really know what’s right? They want to turn those chiclets green showing they have pilot numbers just like CO and BN level commanders do with PT tests and 350-1 bullshit. The Army has a pervasive culture of making things look like they’re good at the cost of it actually being good. Mission ready on paper for a brief is more important than units actually being mission ready in the real world.

Sounds like 7 of the luckiest flight school students.

Was this latest class to select the same guys who painted the rock with the RTAG logo? I forget what the timelines are.

The rock doesn't get painted until grad week.

You can, and do fly with the systems off in the Lakota during the course, some instructors more then others. You do still have a separate IP for WS at shell, just Lee the same one through contact/instruments/and whatever they are calling the man intro after instruments now.

As for the control touch, Id say thats more IP/student dependent, I was in a mixed 67/72 47 course, and if anything the 72 guys were a little bit ahead from the get go.

LUH control touch was and is definitely IP/student dependent.

Day 3, we've been down aircraft twice. Check ride doesn't move, less hours all around. Lotta pressure on URS, not enough instructors, not enough aircraft, and not enough hours.

Maybe if so many werent in maintenance...

Lot of fixed wings! Can anyone explain how the 67j works again? From what I understand its strictly just medevac correct?

Yes could someone explain as this is the first time Ive seen this as well.

The friends I’ve had went that route by commissioning as med service out of college and then applying for the 67J medevac pilot selection. I’ve been told it’s quite competitive. They had no airframe selection in flight school because they were already slotted for 60s.

Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask, but when does selection occur in the process?

After you complete Common Core IERW which includes Contact(basic flight), instruments, and BWS.
