It is my understanding the AF did away with warrant officers decades ago but I had the oppurtunity to strike up a conversation with an Army CW3 this morning about avation jobs in the military. This CW3 is a helicopter pilot at a nearby base. I told him my AROTC DS has talked about branching avation upon graduation. The CW3 advised DS go into Raptors or some other sort of PRA slot as it is an emerging MOS. Then we got to talking about how the AF is moving their pilots from jets to RPA and how crazy it is to invest so much money in training a pilot to then move them to an RPA platform. This CW3 had a great idea, have the AF bring back their warrant officer program to fly these RPAs. He said we as warrant officers are more cost effective in the short and long term. Sounds like a great idea, thoughts??
