Topic: Whats the actual view on this.


OK first off i have had my privite pilots lic. for almost 4 years. I am wanting to fly for the marrines after college. Or thats my goal. I have had alot of people tell me that the millitary looks down on people that already have flying experence. Can anyone tell me if this is true!

Thanks

its not that they look down on it, its just taht they dont want people who have the experience of flying acting like they know everything b/c flying a jet or a helicopter is much different from flying a cessna. its the same as learning to shoot, normally people who never touched a weapon before shoot better than those who have gone to the range b/c they havnt picked up any bad habbits or headstrong ways.
