My whole life I have wanted to be in the Marine Corp. I found out years ago (I just turned 15) that the way I wanted to accomplish this was the USNA. More specifically, I want to be a Helicopter Pilot. Lately I have been doing a lot of research about if having your license before you apply to an academy (specifically the USNA), but it's all about if you a plane private license, not a helicopter one. So I was wondering if any of you had an idea of having a helicopter pilots license would help me. PS. I know you have to be 16, I'm just getting myself ready. Thank you!
