Tarantula Posted May 18, 2010 Report Share Posted May 18, 2010 Hi everyone! I've been lurking on this site for a while (actually, a couple of years) and have always wanted to learn to fly helicopters. Took some discovery flights a couple years ago, but didn't really have any means to start lessons. I've been looking into the AIMS college deal with front range helicopters now, and need to talk with their financial aid dept more to see how they can help me. Finally getting serious about going back to school to get a career started instead of just jobs. I'm 23, quite a few of my friends went the degree route, and they seem to be making the same or less than I do, and with the school debt on top of it. The more I think about helicopters as a career, the more it makes sense to me, in that I know there will be jobs out there, and its definitely worth the investment to do something I will love doing for my career. Anyhow, I just figured I'd get my name out here, let you guys know I'm around in the denver/boulder area, and I'll gladly take any advice you've got (not that I haven't read a ton of it lurking around for as long as I have). The colorado heliops is a new one since when I was last looking at schools, and I think I'll have to take a ride with them just to see what I might be missing out on with front range. (And yes, I'm definitely taking a ride with front range before locking myself into anything as well). Any kind words, sage wisdom, or attempts to scare me off the path, I'll take it all, but I'm determined to make this happen for me, and I'll be working in the skies someplace in the not too distant future.
