Currently considering 15T (Black Hawk Mechanic). Wanted to know if I can pick up a better paying job directly after AIT and deployment since I will be part time.
SIDE QUESTION: (Aviation Warrant Officer)
Considering aiming for 153D (UH-60 Pilot) through WOCS By completing a WOFT Packet.
I am 22, civilian with no college. I can get 110 GT on the ASVAB
The SIFT is what I am currently studying for and want to get the highest grade possible (Aiming for 65+).
Also, I used to smoke weed when I hung out with my sh*ty highshool "friends". (No record) No criminal record besides 1 traffic stop for speeding. Ticket paid.,
I do not smoke any more and have no plans to. I want to keep it under wraps (unless asked directly.), I heard that for a Top Secret Clearence they will talk to friends and family, so I fear that drug use may come up and will kill my chances of aviation. I am a flight student and have a pretty firm grasp on aviation.
Thanks for the understanding and help.7 AnswersMilitary3 months ago
I currently have no college (but will pursue one beginning next year, if I can afford it).
I wanted to know what the pipeline and lifestyle was like also. I heard it is tough, and I am up for the challenge.8 AnswersAircraft3 months ago
I just bought a moto e7 from target. I took out my old SIM from my old phone and placed it into my new one. They claimed it was unlocked at Target, but literally no mobile network connection. I cannot even make the phone call to active.
At the end of the day I just want the phone working, I don't care if I have to change service at this point.3 AnswersCell Phones & Plans4 months ago
Ready to man up and join the military but m terrified of being screwed/misinformed/lied to by recruiter. Any veterans can give some advice?
So I will just put it all out here, call me what you want, I am here to be INFORMED by men/women who are ahead of me.
I am 22 years old and deciding between either Marine Corp or U.S Army.
I wish to use service as a way to 1)Service my country, as it has done so much for 2)Meet people and form a true bond with people. Growing up I was very poor and constantly moving and never really learned to make long term friends. This lead to a depression after high school and still kind of bothers me today. 3) Afford college without taking on large debt. 4) Generate a stable income that i can save and invest over my career. 5) A way to get into aviation as a pilot. If I get a pilot slot after college I will happily retire in the military.
MY PROBLEM: I am committed to the idea of serving through aviation,but...
As I am 22 years old with no college, I fear that I will not have enough time to make it into UPT, (which must be accomplished before the age of 30).
Army recruiter: I was told that I can become a rotary wing pilot by signing up as a helicopter mechanic and moving up the ranks to crewchief then pilot.
Marine recruiter: Army guy lied I should join Marine reserves while in school.
According to my own research, I can go through Army WOCS and apply for a pilot position. This way I can fly while serving and going to college. But I somehow need to get a letter of recommendation from a current WO Pilot. Considering navy also and prefer fixed wing over rotary.

I am currently finishing up my freshmen year of college (Majoring in Aircraft Operations) and dreaming of becoming a pilot but am having some doubts. For example, I heard it is incredible hard to even earn a decent pay as most regional FOs earn around 20K-30K a year :/ no where near the 250K that the media likes to make people believe. I am not at all planning to or aspire to become rich off of flying commercially but I just want to be able to follow my dream that I love doing, but of coarse I also need to be able to support myself and a family. For you guys who have made it as far as being anywhere in the commercial flying industry, how do you feel about your job? Was it worth the time and money to get where you were? How hard is it to move from Regional to Major? How much do you fear loosing your job due to furloughs? and of coarse, how hard was it for you to get to the point where you would consider yourself 'comfortable' in your field?3 AnswersAircraft4 years ago
