I can wait until Spring 2022 to EOD, but if itís going to be longer, I need to start looking other places!

Iím hoping the airlines start hiring and that helps clear out the wait.

Thanks in advance for sharing!
Absolutely no idea. Iím still waiting on the flight assessment. Itís been radio silence for like 6 months.

We had a safety stand down day last week and one of the speakers was a recruiter and he is generally pretty up to speed with knowledge. He said AMO should be running 1 academy class this summer and 2 classes in 2022. He further stated he thought the numbers for pilot hiring would be about 12-16.

Again the whole COVID thing at the academy is changing. Last I heard if you are already vaccinated and have proof then you are permitted to use the gym and leave FLETC on the weekends, but if you have not had the COVID-19 vaccine then I guess you are still on lock down. Who knows things change daily it seems.

When I spoke with AMO Applicant Care a few weeks ago, they said that since FY21 hiring goals were met way early, funds were shifted elsewhere. They are expecting to start the assessments again in Oct with the beginning of FY22 and the associated funds.

What I donít know is how many assessments are ahead of me and how many can they conduct each month.

Default Minimum requirement

Hi all

Iím currently hold ASEL and almost meet the minimum requirements for AIA.
I think a lot of candidates have couple of thousand hours and military experience so that looks me not have a good qualification to be competitive.
Do I need additional ratings (AMEL,CFI etc.) or flight hours to be competitive?
I think law enforcement job is very honorable because they protect and serve for this great nation thatís why I would like to be AIA.
Please any comments or advice.

Thanks in advance

You will need to be dual rated, ie commercial fixed wing and commercial helicopter. The agency went back to the dual rating requirement last year. I do not know when there will be another hiring announcement; however, the academy class dates are so backed up, you likely wouldn't even be hired until the mid to end of 2022.

If you're interested in law enforcement and flying, I would suggest applying for a State Police organization or large city PD, their aviation credential requirements are often lower and they might even pay for the rotor add on. You will likely have to spend a few years pushing a cruiser around the streets, but its an option.
