I’m 16 years old and desperately want to become a Warrant Officer in the Army, I’ve been looking around for the best ways to do it and have found some pretty good info. Honestly, I don’t care much about getting paid a tremendous amount, I just want to serve my country and enjoy what I do at the same time. Ever since I was a little kid I’ve wanted to fly an AH-64 Apache and I’m wanting to know the best route to do so. Also is it possible to go through training to become a warrant officer and enlist when you’re just 17 years old.

Thanks for the feedback

I enlisted when I was 17, my dad had to sign a consent form. As far as becoming a warrant officer, from what I know, warrant officers are the experts of their field. This means that they had to have years of experience already working in whatever field it is. Once you as an NCO have so much time in service, you can submit a packet to go to WOCS. I believe you have to have at least a 110 gt score on your asvab and of course you'll need to support of your command.

You must be at least an e-6 in technical fields and there is no minimum grade for aviators. Talk to a recruiter to solidify a game plan. You've probably read this already but:

SPC (Join to see) you’re almost correct. Since he want to fly he doesn’t need to enlist first. He can go from high school to flight school. Hunter Maier I think you have wait until you graduate. The age requirement for WO is 18 with a GED or High School Diploma. Also you have to take the SIFT. To do do get in touch with an WO recruiter they have a website with people for you to get in contact with.
