Cry of the Wind Posted May 4, 2005 Report Share Posted May 4, 2005 Greetings all, I am a high school student at this time and will be going for my commercial helicopter license soon. I am curious about the use of a university degree in the rotor wing industry. At this time I am more interesting in getting my first 100 hours and going on a road trip rather than getting a degree (naturally). If I am applying to companies such as Canadian Helicopters would a degree be a huge benefit or just nice to have. I'm sure it isn't a big factor at the 100-hour level but later down road I'm wondering if I'll need one to get an IFR job flying something bigger (much like Airline pilots needing degrees). From reading other posts I have gotten the feeling that its a good thing to have but no one has bluntly stated its worth insofar as to say you need one. How important is a degree to a helicopter pilot in Canada? Thanks in advance for any help you can provide. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
