    The S3 ArmA Aviation Center of Excellence is conducting Rotary flight training in the month of November. This training is open to all troopers of the Regiment, regardless of MOS. We will be running the Ground School, Basic Rotary Wing and Advanced Rotary Wing courses. While these courses must be completed in order, they may be done over any period of time that suits the individual student - there is no time-out period. After completing each course, the student must pass each evaluation one on one with an Instructor Pilot.

    @Walsh.D I'll tag him so he see's this I know he's been tied up lately. Usually they alternate Rotary wing (helicopter) one month and Fixed wing the next from what I understand but its possible they'll put on one in December. I know I missed the October course as I joined 7th Cav after it had already been completed but then they put on another course in November so it can and does happen.
