I am on the board this May for Warrant Officer. If I get selected how can I ensure I receive PCS orders since flight school and wocs is at the same post. IDK if i would have enough time in-between wocs and flight school to go home, pack everything, etc. etc.

You’ll have enough time in between being selected for Warrant and going to school. I believe I had around 4 months. It may vary. You’ll get your orders and then report to Rucker on the date it says. From there you’ll have time to inprocess the post. After that, you will report to WOCS HHC and become a snowbird until moving over to 1st WOCS. Experience for everyone may vary, but that’s the process I went through.
If you are going to WOCS for flight school, you will receive normal PCS orders. The only ones who PCS and return are the Tech Warrants. You will in-process Fort Rucker as normal as Mr. Enright said as a "Snowbird" (white rank with a "WOC" rank on it.) After that you will do your 2 phases of WOCS (since I assume you haven't completed ALC as a SPC you will do Phase 1 at WOCS instead of online.) After WOCS you will go through the Aviation Warrant Officer Basic Course. Then you will have S.E.R.E. School and Dunker Training. Following those you will go through Aeromedical training. Following that you should start Primary. Primary will consist of a classroom and flying, followed by Instruments, then Basic Warfighting Skills. After BWS is Aircraft selection, then you move on to learning your airframe.
