It all depends on if the guy just wants to fly and how he wants to. If he wants to search and rescue type level flying then CG, thats there bread and butter. Combat blowing **** up Army for sure. If you want to deliver people and supplies off a ship and Anti-submarine warfare (joke) Navy. I don't know much about AF Helos. Also, doesn't the Marines have some close air support Helos??

I don't think the Osprey is a helicopter... I could be wrong but I would think it's a fixed wing pilot thing. They also have a bad track record with crashing... just saying.

That's one bird I'll never step foot in. Chinooks are bad enough.

Lurker/Marine NFO officer candidate here, so I probably don't know a hell of a lot compared to the guys in here.
I do know that the Osprey is a tilt rotor (Takes off/lands like a helo, flies like a regular prop plane), so you end up having to do helo school and fixed wing school, so it's one of the longest times in schools out of all the airframes that the Marines fly. That, and the reputation other people have mentioned. If you want to fly it badly enough, get in touch with a Marine Officer Selection Office and talk to them about aviation contracts.

Anyone that is a pilot for the Army, can you guys help me out and let me know if you think it would be better to go to college first and ROTC or enlist out of high school?
College, but there is no guarantee that you will fly unless you get accepted into a para/Lin in the guard/reserves prior to commissioning. Otherwise when you assess, you throw your name in the hat with the other new LT's for a branch. The Army needs chemical officers...just sayin
