Hey there, I'm searching for a little bit of guidance on my flight warrant packet. I took the sift already and will continue my flight physical as soon as I get PRK eye surgery in the summer. Other than my physical I have my packet all together. I'm currently down range and would like to maximize my time here to better my chances for selection. I've been waivered to PFC and expect to get waivered to specialist soon. I have 27 college credits currently and I'm enrolled in civilian classes here already to get some more credits. I'll be attending soldier of the month soon, And I try to stand out overall. Now could anybody offer me any more guidance here to help my packet out? I know that the only thing that matters to the board is what is on paper. So how can I beef up my credentials? Are correspondence courses helpful? How about if I volunteered my Sundays at the airfield and maybe get air time? Any advice is appreciated, thank you.

Whatever you have in your resume, emphasize how it can be applied and relevant to aviation. Safety is a big one. THEE big one tally Safety is a massive element in aviation. Don't take it from this new warrant, take it from the 12 years in aviation I had enlisted before being picked up.

I'm pfc now, rallypoint won't let me promote myself. either that or I can't find the right spot to do it lol. I expect in March to be getting spc. Every time the board results are posted I take a look to see how many spc and pfc are listed just to keep my hopes up a little bit. As long as I see a few then I don't see why my name can't be one of them. And the "thicker resume" you say is exactly what I'm aware of, sir. That's why I'm asking about extra things I can do that get put on paper to make myself stand out against other pfcs and specialists.

How do you come across getting a recommendation from a cw4 or cw5? Flying is the only reason I joined. So I want to do everything in my power to make it happen.

PV2 (Join to see) - Is there an aviation unit where you are at? Perhaps you should start a discussion of your own to make sure more people here can provide you feedback and better answer your question than I can. I was already in aviation, and the CW5 that wrote my letter was someone I had worked with for a few years, so it was easy for me to find someone. If there is an aviation unit where you are stationed, go to it, peek around and plainly ask. Get ballsy. Ask for that interview (respectfully of course). They're putting their name on the line for you, so give them a reason to do so.

Where I was at, the flight surgeon requires you to take and pass the SIFT before beginning the flight physical
