I am in the process of completing a 153A Warrant Officer Packet. I have already met the prerequisites for the physical and passed the SIFT (scored a 54). I have a 264 PT score and 121 GT score. The commander has already written my recommendation letter, and the battalion commander has agreed to write one for me as well. However, as I am stationed in a forward support company rather than a flight company, my communication with the 153A warrant officers has been limited to those at the CW3-CW4 level. Would a recommendation from one of those be just as likely to qualify my packet with the board, or should I aim to receive one from the CW5 in the Battalion? Note, I have only interacted with this person once in the whole time I have been in the unit.

If you were on the bubble, a hard-hitting recommendation from a widely-known CW5 might help. Your qualifications all seem to be above the line so just get a qualified letter in your packet and send it ASAP. Now more than ever, qualified=selected.

Any senior warrant, W3-W5, will be fine.

For me, it all came down to my board. As CW4 David White stated, you are above the line for qualifying, and the Army needs warrant officer aviators.
