    60G course is around 5 months. Without UPT you'll be restricted to helo only, but not necessarily 60s only. QOL, duty locations and flying opportunities will be better on team blue than on team green so you could fail and still fail up.

    How to get into general aviation for fun

    Read the FARs, specifically 61 and 91. Mil medical = 3rd class. No need for biannual if you're getting annual mil eval. It's all there.
  3. Interesting. My process so far has been medical, then ARB, then IST packet proper. Currently waiting on the ARB. I'll be helo only, already rated and prior commissioned. Haven't heard about the TS issue, but I'll query my recruiter. I'm about 3 months in. Supposed to be another 3-5 months.

    Army to AF Transfer (Green to Blue)

    I said it that way because an active duty service obligation doesn't really apply to part-timers, but it'd be nice if an ADSO cut both ways. Looking at AFI 36-2005, table 10.2 covers time in service, but the wording of paragraph 10.1, which covers grade determination, is a little weird, so I was asking to see if anyone else had transferred as a warrant having been an O grade previously.

    Army to AF Transfer (Green to Blue)

    I wouldn't be looking to transfer if they owed me active duty, but I don't have an obligation of any kind, including ready reserve.

    Army to AF Transfer (Green to Blue)

    Anyone know the AFI that would cover a prior O grade that reverted to warrant officer that is doing a transfer to the ANG from the ARNG? Been doing a little research while I wait for the office response and I think it's covered by AFI 36-2005 10.1, but not really sure. Has anyone else been in this boat before? From the DoDIs I gather that I have to transfer over as a warrant, so then the Air Force would have to make me a commissioned officer again. The rules on the Army side are that they'd have to recalculate my DOR, and if the AF rules are the same I should be good to go. Interestingly I found a post I made on here 15 years ago. Life has it's own plans sometimes I guess.
