I met one for the first time today. Struck me as odd, I thought only the Army had Warrant Officer aviators.
The reasoning I heard was manning issues and this addressing a need for more bodies in the cockpits and less heads vying for DH in those communities. Not sure if that is/was true thoughI still don't know why they don't let them into the jet or E2/C2 community. If they make the cut, why not?
