Stick with the route to commissioning. If you want to fly, try for assignment to Army Aviation after commissioning. I've heard this is difficult, but put in the effort to try for the assignment to flight school. In the long run, life as an officer provides more pay and better opportunities to lead than that of an Aviation Warrant. Unfortunately, it does not allow you to always fly as much as you might want. As an alternative, look into inter-Service commissioning into the Air Force or Navy to attend their pilot training program. I'm not sure how firmly the Army has you locked in when you're in G-to-G.
