So you got med boarded out of the Army? Assuming Army because no one else lets W's fly to my knowledge

He's an angel dressed in oilskins; he's a saint in the "Sou'wester,"
He's a pluck as they come, or ever can;
He's a hero born and bred, but it hasn't swelled his head,
For he's just the U.S. Government's hired man.

I've seen your exact situation too many times, I feel for you.

Learning to fly anything is far from cheap.....let alone buying an actual plane/chopper

If I wasn't dead set on going back to school for a degree I would use my GI Bill on a pilots license, you still have to foot the fuel bill but the schooling is paid for.

I used the Post 9/11 GI bill to go for aviation flight sciences at Western Michigan University.....all fuel costs are paid for.

I didn't know they would pay for fuel as well, that's really cool. Do you fly for a living now?

How long have you been flying now and is it a career you'd recommend?

I've been flying for a few years, but you need to be pretty passionate about it. It takes time to build up the hours to qualify for certain jobs, right now the FAA requires at least 1500 hours in order to qualify for an ATP (Arline transport pilot certificate)...if you ever want to fly for the airlines. I do not fly for an airline. I enjoy flying, but it takes a lot of effort and knowledge to be in the industry.

I've got a friend in the military that wants to get out and fly helo's for a news company or something like that.
