    I was looking to go for flight to try my luck at becoming a chopper pilot in the army..

    well right now im not really shooting for it but i just wanna lay all my options out before i decide if i wanna go Army or Marines..

    edit: crawl half a mile? holy shit..lol. I heard it was about as physicaly tuff as boot camp but alot more tuff mentally?

    I remember having to low crawl up a hill with our ruck packs on, while dragging a Javeline launch tube + round. Our prize for getting to the top of the hill? Digging a huge ass Javelin fighting hole, and if we stood up, we were shot by snipers and our digging partner had to fireman carry us to the medevac point.

    Those kind of games make it fun though. You get to the point where if your buddy gets shot and you have to carry him, you just start laughing because of all the pain you're in.

    Low crawling always fucked my knees up and I hated it with a passion. 1/2 mile would piss me off.

    Well i went to WOFT, so everyone i went with was going to be a pilot. I don't know much about the other warrant schools and what they have to do. Personally i thought it was tougher physically than basic, and you pretty much just block the mental part out after a while, cause you realize its only 6 weeks and you will have a badass job after those six weeks.

    and tryin to go flight right off the street isn't too easy. If you can get some good recomendations it will help, and a private pilot license, and a college degree. Your best chances are to enlist in the aviation branch, so you can get to know some pilots, and then have them right your recomendation letters

    Hehe no im not trying to go right to Warrant Officer Training. My recruiter said its theoreticaly possible to go right from basic to Warrant Officer Training but its pretty unheard of. Im gonna go into the reserves, then after college go active duty and then apply.

    Im thinking about going to Gateway for college. They have a 2 year course, you leave with your commercial pilots liscense. Either that or go for engineering. Would having a commercial pilots license really help me out in getting into Warrant Officer Training to become a pilot?

    yeah they like people with pilots licenses because you know most general flight principles then. and it will help you on your AFAST too

    i dunno what i would consider exceptional, you only need a 90 to pass, but i'd say like a 140-150 would be pretty fuckin good

    Damn you! 139. :wtc: Is it true that anything between 90 - 110 is considered non-competitive?

    and i don't know, but i wouldn't think so cause if you pass the first time they won't let you take it again to improve your score.
