This has me thinking, as I primarily want Blackhawks but you just never know until selection time comes what you'll get. Are there instances where people switch airframes at some point in their career if they want? Or strictly just needs of the Army type of thing?

It is uncommon, especially in more recent years. The Army has denied airframe changes to pilots who told HRC it was either allow the change or lose a pilot. Doesn’t make sense when the army is short on pilots but HRC still denies it.

I wont be surprised if my class ends up stacked with apaches next because of this. This was the perfect selection for what everyone in my class is hoping for. Oh well, needs of the Army..

You're gonna be an Apache pilot Gideon, just deal with it.

I'll deal with it as long as we are stick buddies in advanced with your IP :P

Yesterdays selection

 

COs:

 

60M - 2

64E - 2

47F - 4

C12 - 2

 

WOs

 

64E - 2

60M - 3

47F - 3

C12 - 4

 

Order for warrants went 47, 2 c12, 47, then 60. I forget the middle but the echos went last. Most people got what they wanted.

Is that why nobody seems to want to fly the 64s? I thought it was the mission they had.

 

I haven’t heard anyone who flies them complain about it. Plenty of people want to fly them and select them.

67 Selection

 

Thanks for the post!

 

I am probably wrong here, but I thought the TH-67 excluded applicants from both the c-12 and AH-64E? Or is it just the c-12?

Dang, you got that up quickly.

 

Order from what I remember:

 

WO- 2 47, 2 64, then 60, 47, 60s

 

CO- 60, 60, 47, maybe 60, 47, 60s

We were as surprised as you... first time I've seen a 67 class get 64Es.

 

Thanks for the post!

Personally I don't mind attack. But if I have the choice I am going for 47s or 60s first. I like their mission better.

 

Ultimately I will be happy in any air frame though.
