I have been pursuing OCS (pilot) the past couple of years during college with no avail (graduated last year). I have 5 years active '04-'09, 2 years IRR '09-'11, and now pushing one year in the active Reserves. My current rate is AT2(AW), I drill in North Carolina with an Expeditionary Unit but I am cross assigned to VAQ-129 in Whidbey. With the age limit for pilot fast approaching I am considering, and would like to go back on active duty as an aircrewman. Obviously the Navy has made it really tough for priors to go back active. Does anyone have any insight to the possibility of converting from overmanned AT to an undermanned AW and goin back acitve? From what I can find AT is at CREO 3 and AW CREO 1.
