Thanks so much for the info!

While my education and work experience is in law enforcement, my passion since childhood has always been aviation... I've always loved flying, but never had the funds to work toward a pilot's license. If I could end up behind the controls, I'd make a career out of it... but being a crew chief in a UH-60 or even just working on them would be enjoyable, and a nice alternative to the current state of law enforcement jobs here (With more officers getting laid-off than hired).

From what you've seen, was there any specific reason some guys went straight to a flight company out of AIT, or was it pretty much random and up to the "needs of the Army"? Personally, I agree with the idea of starting in a maintenance company to get a better concept of the fundamentals... just curious what traits, if any, they seem to look for in sending guys to a flight company.

Thanks again for the insight.
