I retired from the Army after 20 years, 14 spent in aviation as an OH-58D pilot. I took the typical HEMS path during my transition, and loved it. My dream was always to fly for the airlines, and when this opportunity presented itself, my wife and I discussed it heavily and I made the leap. I am an avid supporter of the idea that you need to find what is right for your personal situation, whether it be the airlines or another path. I am always available to give my insight as former HEMS to those weighing both options, or even the thought process of leaving another path to pursue this unprecedented opportunity. Take full advantage of the information the RTAG staff has put together for you. I promise, you will not regret it.
