Incase some of yall aren't tracking. There is a WOFT discord available to everyone whos applying. Theres plenty of Active Aviators in there as well as people all throughout the pipeline that can answer question and give insight. Can also get help on your documents and what not. Also has probably most up-to-date board results and selection results (for advanced airframe) as well with the aviation part being the focus. https://discord.gg/pcrJwCCjbq Link above. Gang gang

Video only approximately 18 minutes. Should be seen by all who are applying to WOFT. Good luck in flying above the best.

Does anyone have a good a graph on the fuel consumption on a MD500E at each PSI of N1. I don't have a fuel monitor and am interested what the different power setting would be.

I used mine for vocational training to get my fixed wing ratings. It wasn’t the best up-front value but it got me on a seniority list and to a major airline much faster than using it for a degree.
