I am considering my options for service selection and one thing that has interested me is being a Helicopter pilot in the USMC. Army Aviation has been discussed at length on this forum but there is much less on the culture/lifestyle of the Navy/USMC Helo community. I have heard from people at the academy that Helo pilots in the Corps have a different mentality than the jet community, but very little has been elaborated on. I have read about the various platforms and their missions but I am looking for a little more insight into the community. Are their any USMC/USN helicopter pilots or really anybody with experience with either of the two communities that can speak to the culture/lifestyle, career progression, mission types, differences from Army aviation?
