    Not as a PFC. You'll need to become either a warrant officer or a commissioned officer to be allowed to attend flight school. Either way, be prepared to work your @ss off.

    Yes but it will be very difficult. First thing you will need to do is the AFAS assuming you pass with an 80% or higher then you will need to complete your flight warrant packet which will consist of a flight physical, a letter of recommendation from your CO, BN and a senior flight warrant, and a few other things. Once you have com pleated your packet to become a flight warrant it will be reviewed by a board if selected you will go to WOCS and at completion be awarded the rank of WO1 then you will wait around forever at Ft Rucker and eventually be put in to a class.

    I haven't heard of many individuals getting picked up as PFCs but it is very possible if you have a strong packet.

    The US Army Warrant Officer Recruiting website indicates that WOFT is for civilian applicants only:

    As far as commissioned officer flight, there are usually no aviation slots available at Ocs, so it would mean attaining a flight school slot by commissioning through Rotc or at West Point. A Pfc who meets the age limits- not yet reached the 23rd birthday on July 1 of the year of entering West Point-can apply for an appointment. Can also apply for green to gold and commission through Rotc.

    Good Luck!
