    its various MOSs depending on the type of the helicopter but the actual job title is Crew Chief. in combat situations the Crew Chiefs operate the door guns

    Do any of the US Helos still run around with a Crew Chief and a Gunner?

    Wait... So if someone wanted to be a door gunner, they would have to become a crew chief and hope that the chopper they take care of has a door gun? :mad:

    yeah crew chief is mainly there for repairs or watever. its just in combat situations if the chopper is equipped, which it most likely will be he becomes the gunner. its like a secondary job

    Yep, and you have to hope to be in a unit on flight status and not just a maintenance unit. One of my best friends was a Blackhawk crew chief and the first two units he was assigned to were strictly maintenance/overhaul units, the only flying they did was test flights and had to fight to get enough flight hours to even keep flight status pay. He finally got to a line unit in 4th ID at Ft. Hood and ended up ferrying VIP's around Iraq for a year. Blackhawk and Chinook crew chiefs fly with the birds as the "door gunner" but your main job is keeping them ready to fly.
