    Default High School to Flight School

    Ive been roaming around on the good ol internet for about a month now trying to absorb a lot of information about the Army and the process of joining before i talk to a recruiter. I recently found out that there is some way i could join the Army and after boot camp i would head to flight school.

    My questions are..

    What are the requirements to join as a warrant officer?
    Do warrant officers experience different training after or during flight school?
    Would being a WO interfere with joining OCS?

    If you want to become a helicopter pilot in the US Army, you can test and sign up for the program with your Army Recruiter. He will have all the details. Here is the link for the 153A requirements.

    153A - Rotary Wing Aviator

    After WOCS, flight school is an 18 month program. WOCS and OCS are two different programs but you can apply for OCS while as a warrant officer as long as you meet their requirements (e.g. bachelor degree)

    OCS and WOFT are two different things, you either go OCS or warrant...if you want to fly, go warrant, if you want to be a Commissioned Officer, go OCS.
