HeliZach Posted February 27, 2005 Report Share Posted February 27, 2005 Hello everyone. I've been flying since August and obtained my PPL in November. I've been building time for my commercial ever since, and by fall I plan to have my CPL, CFI and possibly instrument ratings. My question has to deal with flying for US Customs and Border Protection (http://www.customs.treas.gov/). I know I want to fly for a living and I would love to be able to protect and serve my country in the process. I am just curious if anyone has any suggestions or advice for someone, like myself, pursueing this career path. If I understand correctly it would be most beneficial to obtain ratings in fixed winged aircraft as well, but to what degree? Also, as far as formal education, I have a year under my belt at my state university towards a degree in accounting. Would a degree in aviation or law enforcement of some type be more beneficial then my current path? I know it won't come easy and I know it seems I have quite a narrow focus, but this is my ultimate goal. I am still young.... 20 years old and with no commitments... and as long as I am flying, I feel I will be happy. Of course I understand that I will instructor for a few years, build some turbine time with an operator, and then see where I am, but I just want to set myself up so that I am confident I am not wasting my time with something not beneficial to my ultimate goal. Any help, suggestions, or even contacts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks much! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
