Pilot’s pinnacle promotion bittersweet

 

Written by Sgt. 1st Class Stephanie Carl
159th Combat Aviation Brigade Public Affairs

Fort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne DivisionKandahar Airfield, Afghanistan – For warrant officers, career progression is a little different – often a little slower – than the career progression of non-commissioned officers and commissioned officers. With only five ranks to progress through, they tend to spend a little more time at each rank.

When the aviation community’s newest chief warrant officer five, Kyle Hill, received his rank December 1st, he knew the promotion was bittersweet.

“Getting promoted to W5 is the pinnacle,” said Hill, the standardization instructor pilot for Task Force Wings (4th Battalion, 101st Aviation Regiment) at Forward Operating Base Wolverine in southern Afghanistan. “I’ve reached the top rung, but it’s bittersweet, because I know it’s not going to last forever.”
