I graduated in March so I'm a relatively recent graduate. Aviation BOLC is split into two phases, I & II. Phase I is done before IERW and SERE and is about 5 weeks long. The course work is simple composed mostly of memo writing and Army regulations. You will qualify on the M9 and M4 and have a 4 day field portion of "patrolling". Then, several months later after you've completed IERW and your advanced airframe training you will do Phase II. Phase II is about 2 weeks long and revolves around the structure and function of the different aviation brigades, battalions, and companies. You may get the opportunity to take Phase II during a hold if you have one that syncs up with when they're giving a class, and if you're already branch qualified in something else you won't have to do BOLC at all which is called a BOLC bypass.

"Flight school" is really a series of courses i.e.; BOLC Phase I, Dunker, SERE, IERW, AQC, BOLC Phase II. From what I understand, because you're already branch qualified you will just bypass the BOLC phase I and II portions of flight school. So you'll theoretically get through faster then your peers. If you're guard you will definitely get through faster, but if you're active just plan on 12-18 months regardless.

They currently got rid of BOLC bypass due to changing regulations or something. I was never given the full story, but I had two previously BOLC qualified officers in my BOLC class which finished a week ago.
The bottom line is that BOLC isn't hard at all. Jake summed it up pretty much entirely, and as far as any course materials go, they give you it all on AKO pretty much Day 1.

Hey! Do you have any up to date info for AVBOLC? I’d love to get a head start on reading materials. If you could walk me through where to find it that’s be awesome.

Just confirming, Aviation BOLC is after flight training at Rucker or before? Not sure how regular officers work but I do have warrant friends who just graduated there.
