    • Except that the degree will mean you can fly a helicopter for the Canadian military!
    • We have!   We are here to warn others of huge mistake they will make pursuing a Helicopter Career.  A Helicopter Pilot Licence is the same as Bachelor of Arts degree from  a University.......worthless!!
    • I’m thinking halfers on some lottery tickets.
    • ****, thats twice in one year that I actually agree with Shakey. Bring on the meteor!
    • The fact of the matter is that the thought process isn’t Old School, it is just the way life is. Most of us researched the industry and accepted the fact we may have to be ground crew first and then hopefully our work ethic would eventually get us that coveted seat. I know it is taught in school Now days that you are entitled to 6 figures and a CEO position right away but the reality Is that teachers have a very distorted view on how the world works (They are big believers in socialism,right up until bargaining time) My suggestion is do your research first before getting into any career. This one is fun for a while but like everything the polish wears off after a while. Also you will be a lot happier if you just know that nobody owes you a thing in life, it’s hard work getting to the top of any career. I still like flying, don’t love it. It’s just a job. To suggest the negative Nellys just up and leave because they don’t love it anymore is also just dumb. Take the good and bad opinions and form your own . Just know the likelihood of the left seat thing happening is probably not going to happen. Good luck.
