matt_as350 Posted December 13, 2004 Report Share Posted December 13, 2004 Hello, I am looking to be a helicopter pilot, but I know that its always best to have other experiences/skills and a fallback before going into the industry and I am considering the military for that, and looked at some trades that intrest me -Resource Management Clerk Support Clerk which is a clerk in civillian occupation and the other is that of a Naval Communicator which could be a Computer Operator,LAN Admin,Computer Systems Admin, Cryptographer,Radio Operator, Clerk, or marine traffic controller in the civillian world). My question is when is best to go to heli school because the way I am getting the $$$ for it, it is kind of weird and I have the best chance of getting the money for heli traning is right out of highschool, But if I go straight from highschool to the military and do my 3-4 years then go back into the civillian world and apply for the funding for heli traning and I still have a chance of getting the money for the heli traning but I would not be 1st priority (which would be fresh out of highschool grads) I would be the 2nd priorty to get money to pay for traning. Which is the best way? and I cant be a military pilot as I wear contacts and the Canadian Forces require 20/20 uncorrected vision. Thanks!
