Just wanted to get some advice on the Army's WOFT program. I have my commercial rotor as well as my private ASEL; I have my instrument in both. My total time is right around 1,700, 300 of which is airplane time, another 300 or so is turbine time. I scored an 84 on the ASVAB, with a GT of 118. I have my HS diploma and some college.
I thought the Army was going to eat me up. Instead my recruiter is telling me that I should probably choose a job in the aviation field and then transfer into the WOFT program a couple of years into my military career. I really don't want to go through two AITs and I also don't want to risk spending my whole military career watching other guys fly. Basically, I'm wondering if I should listen to my recruiter? Or choose a job that's in an entirely different field?
My second option, if I don't get WOFT is 18x (SF) something I would love to do but even still I'd rather be flying.
