Ok I'm currently in the Navy where I'm a mechanic on MH-60S Knighthawks, which unlike the Navy Seahawk, is a very similar variant of the Blackhawk. I'm considering doing Blue to Green and joining the Army, with the goal to be able to fly. The Navy's aircrew rating (MOS), is vastly overmanned, and there is a 0% chance of me being able to fly, with the exception of becoming an officer and pilot, which will be about 5 years of training.
I just want to hear from some 15T's out there about their opinion on my situation. Minus the minor details with select systems on the bird, I'm an E-5 with a lot of experience with this aircraft. I'm trying to see how it would work to become a crew chief. I would expect going to a maintenance company where I would have to prove what I know, just wanting to see if anybody would have a guestimate on how soon I would begin to learn how to become a crew chief and fly. Thanks for the time.
