    Hey everyone!

    I'm not getting much luck with the USCG website, nor Google, so I thought I'd try this option.

    I'm a 1LT, KC-135 Navigator based at McConnell in Kansas. I do enjoy my job, since most of it is Black World stuff. It's fairly rewarding at times, knowing you directly supported a strike, etc. I'm eligible to send a UPT package in soon, but I thought I'd ask some questions before I sign 10 years away to the Air Force.

    I would like to swap over to the CG, but I really want to fly helos. I earned my CSO wings at NAS Pensacola, but obviously I'm not a pilot. I haven't seen much regarding Officers transferring branches. Are there any programs out there for me to get a pilot rating in the CG and fly? Would the CG even take me swapping over at all? What about for a non-flying role, then applying for pilot training through the CG? Are there any Nav/CSO related jobs in the CG? Forgive my lack of knowledge on the subject. Like I said, I haven't found much useful info out there, nor have I talked to a recruiter (would that even help?).

    Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!!

    As long as you make the age cutoffs, you can fly in the CG but you will have to apply for OCS and apply for flight school just like everyone else. You would probably have a better shot than most to get flight school but still no guarantee of flight school.

    We have the Prior Trained Military Officer (PTMO) program. We bring in a few officers from other branches. This would be the route you would take if you did not attend flight school. From there you can request flight school or apply for it. Whether you get helo or fixed wing will depend on how well you do in flight school.

    EDIT: You will not need to go back to OCS. You would go through the 4 week Direct Commission Officer Course. There will be 2 selection panels: October 5, 2015 and March 14, 2016 will be the application deadline dates. Call a recruiter today!

    To add on you should definitely speak with a recruiter. I'm one myself but you wanna get in touch with a local recruiter.
