I am very interested in flying in the military. Right now my first choice is flying helicopters in the Coast Guard. However, I would like to learn more especially about flying in the Navy and Air Force. What is the difference in the working environments in the Marines, Navy, Army, Air Force, and Coast Guard in Aviation? How about the flight training environment? Is it all the same? I know Navy trains the CG and Marines. Obviously each branch has different goals, but what are some of the different tasks you perform as a pilot (especially in Helicopters) as it varies from branch to branch? (ie, CG does search and rescue and counter drug related tasks. ) I am a Student Pilot and, although I really want to fly helicopters, I would be willing to fly fixed wing, especially for the Air Force. I love water, the ocean, and sea related careers, but as a Civil Air Patrol cadet, I am more familiar with opportunities in the Air Force.
