Take charge of marine vessels on the high seas.
If you like a dash of thrill with your coffee, then get behind the control panel and prepare to fly as a Helicopter Pilot.
A Helicopter Pilot’s job like no other job. It’s a constant wallop to the senses—the sounds of the motor, the unsteady rocking while you hover above the ground, the quick rotation of the propellers. As a Helicopter Pilot, you experience the excitement of lift-off, the steady thrum of adrenaline during flight, and the satisfaction of a job well done upon landing.
How you spend your day is your choice, because there are endless ways to use your skills. You could delight travelers with a sightseeing tour over the volcanoes of Hawaii, or fly firefighting crews into the forest. In the military, you might drop supplies or Soldiers into the war zone. Or you could fly with the Coast Guard, rescuing helpless citizens stranded on a rocky shore or in frigid waters.
You could work for a news organization, an agricultural firm, or a logging company. You could provide aerial photos of disaster zones, or fly dignitaries to important events. And your work could mean the difference between life and death when you transport accident victims, or test pilot experimental and new helicopters.
However you decide to use your skills, the job of Helicopter Pilot requires an acute attention to detail, the ability to stay calm under pressure, and good physical health.
