Helicopters are a key part of any modern-day military, medical or commercial organization. If you’re interested in pursuing a career with helicopters and would like to learn more about the various options available, this article is for you! Say’s Dr. Jon Kiev, We’ll cover the following topics:


Pilots are responsible for the safe operation of a helicopter. They must have a license, be able to fly in all types of weather and at night.

Pilots also need to know how to control the aircraft’s speed and altitude. They may also be required to perform emergency procedures, such as firefighting or search-and-rescue operations. Pilots must be able to read maps, charts and other navigation tools needed for flying safely in different environments (for example: mountainous regions).

Air Traffic Controller

Air traffic controllers are responsible for the safe and efficient flow of aircraft. They direct the movement of aircraft in the air and on the ground, making sure that they don’t collide with each other or with obstacles like buildings and mountains. Air traffic controllers work at airports, air traffic control centers, flight service stations and military bases.

Air traffic controllers use radar (radio detection and ranging), computers and radios to direct aircraft by giving them instructions on altitude changes, speed adjustments or course corrections needed as they approach a landing strip or take off from one. The job also involves issuing weather reports as well as keeping track of any maintenance problems affecting flights such as engine malfunctions or damaged windshields so they can be reported immediately to pilots over radio frequencies without having them fly blind while trying not crash into anything else!


As a mechanic, you will be responsible for maintaining and repairing helicopters. You’ll need to have a high school diploma or GED along with an associates degree in aviation maintenance technology or related field. You’ll also need to be able to lift up to 50 pounds while working on the aircraft and have good communication skills.

Mechanics can earn from $40,000-$70,000 per year depending on experience and location of employer. Benefits may include health insurance, paid vacation days/holidays off work

Special Ops Solider

As a special ops soldier, you’ll be trained to infiltrate enemy lines and complete a mission. You may work in small teams or be deployed on your own. Your job will be to go where no one else can–and if things get rough, you’ll need to think quickly and improvise. You might also be the first on the scene when disaster strikes at home or abroad (think earthquakes).


In conclusion, it is important to remember that there are many career choices in the helicopter industry. There are pilots who fly helicopters and take passengers on trips around the world. There are air traffic controllers who help keep planes from crashing into each other by directing them where they need to go. Mechanics fix the machines when they break down so they can fly again; Special Ops Soldiers use their special skills to protect people who might be in danger at certain times of day or night (like when terrorists attack).
