Hi! Pal, Thanks for your service. Your best bet would be check with the service you were in about learning to fly helicopters, Getting your license is one thing BUT unless you have 2000 hrs or more your chance of getting a job are slim. This is because the insurance companies demand this, I have seen this 1st hand, excellent Pilot, super mechanic on helicopters, he had his lic. plus 300hrs. and he couldn't get on with us and we did aerial application aka crop dusting which means we are flying restricted aircraft not allowing passengers. It's a tough world out there for new pilot unless you get military time. As for a school, Not knowing where you are, there used to be a school NE of Raleigh, Raleigh helicopters. I met a guy a month or 2 ago that spent lots and had quite a few hrs. he gave up on a flying career.Good Luck whatever you do, again Thanks. Michael
