Want to be a medevac pilot? Now's the time.

The application window for the fiscal 2013 Medical Service Corps flight training program has opened for MS officers and MS-branched cadets who want to become aeromedical evacuation pilots.

Applicants selected by the Feb. 13 board will attend flight school at Fort Rucker, Ala., in 2013-14.

Officers who complete the rigorous training regimen of the Army Medical Department Basic Officer Leader Course and the Initial Entry Rotary Wing Aviator Course will be awarded specialty 67J.

These officers will incur a six-year active-duty service obligation from the date they graduate from flight school, or are voluntarily or involuntarily removed from the course.

The zone of eligibility for the February board is limited to Medical Service Corps calendar year groups 2011, 2012 and 2013.

The zone includes West Point, ROTC and Officer Candidate School cadets who are branched to the Medical Service Corps.

Applicants also:

Must have less than 48 months of active federal commissioned service at the start of flight training.

Must have a minimum score of 90 on the flight aptitude test as described in Paragraph 2-3 of Army Regulation 611-5 (Personnel Classification and Testing).

Must be medically qualified, as described in Chapter 3 of Army Regulation 40-501 (Standards of Medical Fitness).

May not be more than 32 years old at the start of flight training.

Army policy requires that officers complete the AMEDD Basic Course before they start flight training.

Applications must be received at Human Resources Command by Jan. 31.
