Military Personnel
Men and women who have served, or are serving, in the various branches of the military are likely to have received training and unique skills that provide a solid foundation on which they can build if they choose to pursue career opportunities in aviation.

Transitioning into a Civil Career

The military is a very structured way of life, with job advancements being clearly indentified and understood. Most men and women who enter military service are not likely to know what private sector careers could be available to them, especially if they were to take their military training and apply it to an education certification or degree program. According to www.gijobs.com, this lack of knowledge is one of the largest obstacles in the military-to-civilian employment transition.
