    New here so I apologize if this has been covered.

    Current Army Helo pilot looking into the DCO/ DCA program. Recently contacted a recruiter and he sent me the application checklist and appropriate documents. But I was taken by surprise when he stated the next board wouldn't be until next March 2021, find out if selected in May, and then commission in December. Seems like a pretty lengthy gap and would place me with a 9 month gap between my release date in the Army and commission date with the CG. Talking to a few buddies who have applied in the past, they mentioned that typically there is a board in the spring and another in the fall with a commission date in December. Can anyone provide a little more detail on this? Is there a board this Fall? Or are there changes due to recent events, i.e. covid? Or am I being given incorrect information?

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    They must have changed the recruiting site. They used to have the OJAK on there and they had a page with board dates and application deadlines. 

    Normally there are 2 boards like your buddies mentioned. But there are several deadlines months out from the board. I’m pretty sure my application deadlines were in Jun, package cleanup and interviews for a few months, board was in early Sept, found out late Nov, a lot of waiting and more hoop jumping, and then commission dates were in Apr and Jun. It’s a really lengthy process. 

    I want to say up to 2yrs can be waived since your last military flight, and know a few army guys who got out for awhile and then applied a lot later to join.  I may be wrong here, but even if you’re getting out, you will still need a DD368 to release you from any IRR time on your contract. That’s also a painful and lengthy process and they won’t process your application without it. 

    Your recruiter definitely has the most up to date information. If they’re not telling you about the fall board it’s probably because it’s likely up in the air with all the covid stuff, or at this point it’s too late to process everything you need to get done. 

    Good luck

    What you're saying mirrors what I was just told by another buddy of mine. I'll have to reach out to the recruiter then and get clarification.

    Thanks for the response!
