I want to help you reach your goal of becoming a United States Marine Corps Pilot

To : Future Marine Corps Pilots

My name is Kevin and I want what you want. For you to become a United States Marine Corps Aviator. I want you to know that I have you best interest at heart and I'm genuinely concerned about helping well qualified, dedicated men and women become United States Marine Corps pilots.

A Little About Me...

Since I was a wee lad, I've wanted to fly for the military. Before going to college I joined the Marine Corps Reserves- first as an infantryman- and later in motor transport (truck driver) as a result of transferring schools (therby transferring units).

My original plan was to become a Marine Corps pilot but at the time a military draw down was occurring and the flight slots that I and others had were not to be. While disappointed, I didn't have a commitment and other options existed. I later submitted a BDCP package to the Navy, was accepted into the program, and later was off to NAS Pensacola for Officer Candidate School.

I completed primary and intermediate training at NAS Whiting Field and went to NAS Corpus Christi for advanced.

I wouldn't trade the experiences I've had as a Naval Aviator for anything. The constant training at flight school can be a grind but remember what's waiting for you at the end of the process.

I'm proud to have served as both a Marine and as a Naval Aviator.

About the Guide...

As I stated earlier, I developed this guide because I want you to have the information I didn't when I was trying to earn a commission and a flight slot. I want you to have strategies and techniques to help you through flight school and lastly I want you to be successful in your career as a Marine Corps Aviator.

If you don't know the Marine Corps, Navy, and Coast Guard all go through the same flight training program. To complete this guide I've used my experiences from flight school but more importantly I consulted with numerous current and former Marine Corps pilots to get their perspective, experiences, trials and tribulations.

We've talked about getting a commission. We've talked about getting a flight slot. We've talked about making it through flight school, and we've talked about life in the fleet.

The result is the Marine Corps Pilot Career Guide.

What I want you to do...

After investing, reading though, and implementing the strategies, tactics, techniques and tips in the guide I would appreciate your feedback.

After you go through the entire process--from where you are now to earning your wings-- I'd appreciate feedback about what areas you think the guide covers well but more importantly what areas you feel can be improved and why.

About The Company...

I started this company to give our future fighting men and women a look into their chosen career.

We have pilot career guides for the Marine Corps, Navy, Army and Coast Guard and are presently working on the Air Force Guide.

Good luck in your future career and God Bless,
