Information and Waivers: Commissioned Officers

Waivers for formal training

Requests for constructive credit to required training for courses or experiences completed prior to becoming a warrant officer are considered on an individual basis. While many military courses appear to be similar, Aviation warrant officer courses are designed specifically for the Aviation branch officer. Attendance by all helps maintain an educational standard within the Corps. Officers can request for constructive credit on DA Form 4187, along with appropriate supporting documentations, to the Organization and Personnel Force Development Directorate. Be specific as to why you would not benefit from this educational opportunity and provide all documentation relevant to your request.

Age restrictions for flight applicants

Applicants must be older than 18 but not more than 32 years of age at the start of flight training (32 years of age is defined as not having reached your 33rd birthday). Requests for age waivers are considered on a case-by-case basis. USAREC will forward the completed application packet for any applicant requesting an age waiver to the Organization and Personnel Force Development Directorate. Everything included in the packet is considered. The onus is on the applicant to provide as much information as possible to support the waiver request. GT and AFAST scores, civilian education level and FAA ratings are utilized as tangible qualifications that can be used to support a waiver. Past performances, significant achievements, and demonstrated leadership are examples of less tangible, but equally important, qualifications that are also considered.

Active Federal Service (AFS) restrictions

Aviation branch officer applicants must not exceed 12 years of AFS as of the date the DA Form 61 is signed. AFS waivers requests are processed in the same manner as age waivers.

Aviation Branch Requests

Effective October 1, 2011, the following documentation is required for those OCS applicants requesting to branch Aviation. Requests received by OPFD without the required documentation will be returned without action.

  • DA 4187 requesting Aviation Branch (with recommendation from battalion commander)
  • Resume
  • Letter(s) of recommendation
  • Transcripts (must include degree and grade point average)
  • AFAST score sheet
  • Flight physical with approval stamp from the U.S. Army Aeromedical Center, Fort Rucker
  • FAA pilot certificate (if applicable)
