I have been enlisted for 5 years and I and planning on dropping a warrant flight packet next summer. My experiences are that warrant officers are relaxed and love what they do, so it sounds good to me.

You really have to watch out for those CW3's. They can get into a whole mess of trouble I hear.

From the mouth of my last SCO. "You guys are ****ing amazing! I could take over the world with a couple Specialists and a Chief crazy enough to lead them." (this was after a 3 man team and the 1 living member of the air crew they were sent to 'rescue' managed to stumble upon and wipe out the platoon sized element that was tasked with 'capturing the air crew)

I worked with a CW3 (now CW4) and he was absolutely the most professional and knowledgable person regarding maintenance that I knew.

I did a stint as the BMO and Chief appeared to let me run the shop but in reality it was quite the opposite. Had the place running like a Swiss watch and I learned a lot from him.

I'm sorry Zag, but the answer we were looking for is, 'Who cares, we need to pull out of this place and nuke it from orbit' :tongueout:

The four things an Apache driver needs during the APART:

Instrument ride
Stands ride
-10 exam
waiver for minimum time

Commonly heard during the preflight brief, "So, let's see, we need rockets and 30 so we can take one of the ones with bad HellFire racks..."

:animlol:


Okay, that was entirely too true a while ago. Dunno if it's changed.

Delta's fixed a lot of the "issues" and created some of their own. Its funny to talk to the National Guard guys who used to be crewchiefs in the big transition from Alphas to Deltas. Im personally looking forward to the Blk III. the 701Ds got more umph and we've been told it will be IFR certified so you wont go a year between holding patterns.
