I am currently an NCO in the Army with a goal of becoming an ATP certified pilot. I have been considering becoming an Army Warrant Officer for a while, but I REALLY want to fly fixed​-wing. I am currently working on my private pilot's license and will have completed and passed my PPL checkride by August. Is this transition possible, and if so how should I go about it?
Respectfully,
Tyler Parker

I did it. Was also an nco in the Army now I'm a fresh out of navy OCS butter bar packing up for flight school. Message me with any specific questions you have I'd be glad to help. It was definitely worth the effort

COL David Turk - I was on a Navy run PRT in Afghanistan in 2008/2009 but I did not get the Navy Commendation Medal which I think looks better than my Army one I received as a project officer and with keeping ISAF informed of Civil Affairs successes on a weekely basis. We had a Navy Commander( Destroyer Captain) as the CO, an SF XO Major ,a Lt. CMDR for the S3 and an Army Chinook female pilot as our S4. Our S1 was a CPO.
We had a visit from Admiral Mulllen with 60 minutes tagging along.

The only question I have is what the maximum age limits are for what you did?

You have to be commissioned by the time you hit 27 and it's waiverable for every year you spent on active dutySSG (Join to see)

Here are my 2 cents. Don’t go into the Navy thinking ATP. Go into it because you want to be a Naval Officer and Naval Aviator. It’s not a guaranteed to get fixed wing, and who knows how many hours you will end up with. If you want hours go Army Warrant, but you don’t want rotary wing. Second option is USAF heavies, but you can run the risk of getting drones.

Need a degree and a great AFOOT score . Then find an ANG unit that flies. Call the recruiter at the 117 ARW. I am pretty sure we have pilot openings. We will send you to the Deid and you can fly as much as you like

Is 91 considered competitive now? I know a few years ago you needed at least an 85 to be considered that.

I really don't know how it is scored. If you are interested, I can send you our officer recruiters info and you can chat with him.
