  1. Hey there, I'm new to this forum and was very happy to find a boatload of information from the stickies and other posts. I'm a Freshman at UIC, and I hope to put in my packet in 2019. I worry about my viability as a competitive candidate for a number of reasons. Of course the first being my age; I have heard wonderful stories of 18/19/20 year old who have successfully made it in, and it seems that their backgrounds are inlaid with excellent community service, extra curriculars, great LORs...etc. I have been an average student throughout high school and didn't really do much outside of class. Discovering WOFT has been amazing for me personally, in the sense that it has uncovered a drive within me, and I will do everything within in my ability to ace my classes this year. I've also joined ROTC for the army experience and to potentially foster some leadership and discipline skills. Outside of that, I'm not really sure how to market myself and become a competitive candidate in the early 2019 boards. Should I talk to a recruiter now? What board should I be preparing for(as in should I wait until second semester grades are full in, or maybe first semester). Any recommendations/help would be great. Thanks.
  2. Hello everybody. I could really use some advice regarding my situation in how to best become a commercial helicopter pilot. I am Fixed Winged Private Pilot. I'm currently a sophomore attending a 4 year private university with a major in Criminal Justice. After losing interest in the Criminal Justice field, I'm back on track to eventually fly as a career, helicopters specifically. Is it necessary or recommended to have a 4 year degree to be a commercial helicopter pilot? Does an aviation related degree make better or can in just be in anything I might be interested in outside of aviation? In doing so, I'm also interested in joining the US Air Force. Should I complete my college education and possibly commission or enlist, or should drop out and enlist without facing a decent amount of student debt? I would love to serve, travel, and gain some life experience as I've always been wanting to no matter what. I also believe that the Post 9/11 GI Bill can be used towards rotary wing training at certain flight schools, would that be a benefit? I understand that this may sound complicated, but I could really use some guidance since I feel somewhat lost due to the fact that I don't have any connections in the professional helicopter industry. I would appreciate any feedback.Thank you!
  3. Anyone know a helicopter flying school near Chicago/in the Midwest that's associated with a college offering VA benefits?
