Helicopter Flight Training Using GI Bill Benefits to Become a Professional Helicopter Pilot
“I am and will always be a United States Marine having served a four year term. I found Guidance Aviation in a flying magazine, while I was on active duty in the Pentagon in Washington DC back in 2010. I went from a blood pumping infantry position in the Marine Corps to sitting behind a desk wasting my days away drinking coffee and pushing paper. I knew this was not for me. I needed a thrill and something that was going to get my adrenaline pumping everyday. After watching the videos on the Guidance website, I HAD FOUND IT!
Two years later, I have an Associate of Applied Science Degree that says that I have completed one of the most Rigorous, high altitude, Helicopter flight program’s in the United States. I AM a Professional Helicopter Pilot and have the degree to show it. With the help of the Post 9-11 GI-Bill and the skills I learned in the Marine Corps, I was able to successfully complete this program.
I love what I do, it’s just that simple. I love that I get to spend the rest of my working life being able to see parts of this world from a view that most will never experience in a life time. I now fly as a professional helicopter flight instructor for Guidance Aviation in Baton Rouge, Lousiana.”
