    Cool Need some advice for becoming a pilot

    Hi all, ive posted about once or twice now about wanting to join the army to fly Apaches, or honestly anyone i get assigned to. I have a passion i can no longer explain for them, i want to be with them and fly them every second! So a few questions:

    Is basic training hard? Anything i should do to prepare besides working out and waking up early. I go to boot camp over my junior summer to senior year.

    Is warrent officer school hard? I'm reading 2 books on how helicopters work and fly, not easy stuff but im getting it.

    Does anyone know a place where i can get hands on controls in a helicopter or get a flight and sit in the front or something?

    Grade wise, I just passed first semester with 5 As and a B. So im doing good on grades, trouble wise, none this year what so ever, dosent mean i have it coming my way!

    Also, are there any camps for kids my age (16) that i can do over the summer that involve the army, or aviation (helicopters) camps?

    Thats really all i can come up with at the moment, will post more questions if i have more.

    Yeah I remember you....As long as you keep your ass out of trouble and your nose in the books you should be alright....as for stick time the only ways i can think of are through a flight school or a friend of the family who has a rotary wing license and is willing to help you out.
    For any support questions please contact the AC staff team via the Contact formor via email apacheclips.support@gmail.com.
