View Full Version : High School Student Wants to become a Marine

04-20-07, 03:22 PM
I know that I have to earn a commission to become an officer in the Marine Corps and that to do that I need to go to college, join ROTC and go to OCS. My question is that once I have my commission how do I join flight school and sign up to become a rotor wing pilot to fly a CH-53? Also what should I major in at college to best help me in flight school?

You just asked this question a few days ago... How old are you?

You can get guranteed aviation, but the Marine Corps will decide where to put you. That could mean you would be flying the 53 driver, or a C-130 pilot, or anything else.

As for what you should major it- it really doesn't matter. Physics would be your best bet, but you could probably get where you want to go with an English Lit. degree.

You want to Fly Super Stallions CH-53Es, well first you have to get four years of college. Then go to OCS, then to flight school. By the time you get there the CH-53Es might be out. I myself am a Super Stallion Crew Chief and Door Gunner SAR, also UH1 Huey Gun Ship Crew Chief Door Gunner. Does not matter what you major in to be a pilot in the Corp, just have to pass flight school and water swim qual, and be able to work well with enlisted personal on the ground and in the air. You as a Officer have to beable to work well with others, in the wing as a Pilot you work very close in this. Get a Pilot's licence and learn about aircraft.

SF Swing with the Wing.
