Army News Service has reported the US Army is open to accepting former aviators and crew members back into the service, according to the Army´s command chief warrant officer for the aviation branch, the news source said.
The Call to Active Duty, or CAD program, allows Army Reserve and National Guard aviators to apply for a three-year stint back on active duty. Aviators are needed for AH-64 Apache attack helicopters, as well as CH-47 Chinooks, UH-60 Black Hawks and in some instances, fixed wing assignments.
The retiree recall program is also a possibility, and other programs exist for veterans who only served a few years in the branch.
UH-72 Lakota pilots are needed to instruct the Initial Entry Rotary Wing and other courses. Test pilots are also needed and additional opportunities exist for fixed-wing pilots, mechanics and others.
In addition to the active force, the Army Reserve and National Guard also have positions available for aviators.
