Joining the United States Army?

Okay well, I'm really far in my decision in joining US Armed Forces, however I have a few questions about the Army, and possibly other branches as well.

To start with I'm 17 and a Junior in HS, I'm heavily interested in Aviation, one of the coolest technologies in the world in my opinion.

Flying is the ultimate dream, but I am contempt of working on aircraft as well, and getting a civilian job at places like Lockheed, Boeing, Airbus, etc after the military.

I've been talking to my Army recruiter a lot and have gotten interested in joining the Army as a 15T, a step to get to WO, and eventually, pilot.

My questions are the following:

True/False:

He told me that I would receive $1,000 from the day i become a senior, to the day I graduate (12 months) for signing up as a Junior to become a "Future Soldier"

Scoring a 51 AFQT allows for me to pick the job I want right now, and reserve it until I get out of HS.
Update: Thanks for the quick replies, any of you have contact info to further discuss this?
Update 2: Also, How do I find my MM and EL?
