VA Benefits and Helicopter Training

Posted by Admin

VA Benefits & Helicopter Training By Heidi McBride Having the opportunity to use our VA benefits to pay for professional helicopter flight training is, for many of us Veterans, an incomprehensible dream come true. Using the Post-9/11 GI Bill can genuinely pay for 100% of your fight training, pay for your books and supplies, and provide a reasonable housing stipend. There are, however, many crucial factors to consider before you blindly pick a flight school and jump in feet first. More than one veteran has chosen too hastily and regretted their choice of school once they became aware of all the options available to them. [Read More...]

6 Tips to Keep Your Helicopter Career Moving Forward

Posted by Admin

6 Tips to Keep Your Helicopter Career Moving Forward By Janie Foster & Stacy Sheard 1. Be in control In order to move forward in your career, you need to exercise some semblance of control over it. You are accountable for your own success; stay proactive, think ahead, make goals, build a timeline, look for opportunities, and be adaptable enough to change plans when an unexpected opportunity comes your way. 2. Stay positive If you think your dream job is impossible, then you may as well give up now. Your attitude will determine your success. It is easier to reach something if you are optimistic, see possibility, and actually believe it is attainable. Positive people are inspirational and a pleasure to be around – no one wants to hang out with a Negative Nancy. [Read More...]

NETWORKING FOR HELICOPTER PROFESSIONALS

Posted by Admin

Schmoozing. Brown-nosing. Unfortunately, networking is often thought of as one of these less than flattering activities. I encourage you to think again. Embracing the true concept of networking could be the vital link to your desired career opportunity. [Read More...]

My 2 Cents Worth - HeliSuccess Career Development Seminar

Posted by Admin

“Positivity” is the word that immediately springs to mind when I think of what my wife, Kaye, and I experienced at the fifth-annual HELISUCCESS conference that took place in Las Vegas, Nevada, in November. Positivity…yep, that’s what it was and the feeling was palpable. [Read More...]

How GI Bill Benefits Help Veterans Take the Next Step in Their Careers

Posted by Admin

Transitioning from the military to college can be challenging, at least it was for me. After completing my military service, I struggled with getting started on the next step toward fulfilling my education goals. I first enrolled in an online program, but the courses did not really interest me. I soon discovered that without excitement about the subject matter there was no motivation to continue. The only thing I was certain about is that I didn’t want to become one of those statistics about military veterans who don’t use their GI Bill benefits. [Read More...]

An Unprotected Pilot Can Lose Everything

Posted by Admin

Did you wake up today and think to yourself, “I will go to work and crash my helicopter?” Writing it looks absolutely ridiculous and I am sure that it reads equally ridiculous. Although no one plans an accident, I am confident that we can all agree that accidents do happen. Given that several occur each month, we can also agree that they occur on a regular basis. The problem is that none of us, including me, has an impending feeling that it will actually happen to us. [Read More...]

Tips for a Successful Military to Civilian Transition

Posted by Admin

When I left the military in pursuit of my first civilian flying job, I assumed Part 135 was a common component on several different Bell 206 models. My first helicopter job was with a small company that had difficulty making payroll and cut corners on maintenance and training. My priority after this experience was to seek out a large and stable company that adhered to the regulations and preferably had direct deposit. [Read More...]

HeliSuccess 2011 Event Report

Posted by Admin

It’s my third day in Vegas, and Heli-Success is over now, but I don’t want to leave the meeting room. I’m hanging out as people are packing up the banners and booths and I’m saying goodbye to friends I probably won’t see again until Heli-Expo. When a suggestion is made to go grab a beer, my suitcase and I are the first ones there! [Read More...]

Get Your Career on Track at HeliSuccess 2011

Posted by Admin

"After the first couple of speakers, it was clear to me that this seminar was different from other seminars/conferences I had previously attended. My pre-aviation career in IT, telecommunications and business development had given me my share of conferences. This was profoundly different in that the whole setup was rigged towards the goal. The speakers covered the most relevant, interesting aspects of career development within the helicopter industry." [Read More...]
