  1. So I have tired looking through the forums for some sheriff aviation units but mostly came across state police. I was just wondering if anyone knew of any bigger sheriff departments with aviation units that have a larger amount of helicopters.
  2. Yes that is also very true. I know Im going to have to sacrifice a lot to achieve my dream of flying for a career, not only if I joined the Army but if I learned to fly through the civilian route as well. Both have very big trade offs that I am just going to have to accept, even if it's a big sacrifice. I just need to do my research for both civilian and military now to help make my decision that best fits my needs. But I do understand what you are saying too. The military is more than just flying helicopters, its a commitment to your country and something that shouldn't be taken lightly. Do y
  3. Oh sorry I should've looked in that forum area first before making this post. Okay so it seems like Army National Guard is the better route to go. I do believe ANG has helicopters but its a very limited amount. I do plan on getting my PPL in either fixed wing or helicopter after I graduate college next year, but I am just trying to figure out options for myself before I graduate. Thanks for your help!
  4. I hope this isn't already a post, but if it is I apologize in advance. So I really want to learn to fly helicopters and I feel like the military is the best route to go.

I would like to have a foot in the civilian world with a career, but at the same time to be able to learn/fly helicopters for either the ANG or the NG part time. I just have a few questions that I'm hoping someone can h
  5. Thanks everyone for your replies. I know I'm going to have to sacrifice a lot to achieve my dream of flying helicopters, and it's going to take a lot of time.The more I think about it, I believe I would be happy flying anything
  6. This is my first post on here and I'm looking for some help. I have always had a passion for aviation ever since I was young, more specifically with helicopters. I'm a junior in college and I am trying to figure out what I want to do and what path to take. I know I will have to either go in the military to learn to fly or gonthe civilian route (which I know will be very expensive). If only there were ways to get around the costs on someone else's dime. I have greatly considered the coast guard as well as law enforcement to try and get into SAR type of work, but both come with a lot of sacrific
