I was wondering if any body knew different department’s standards to get on an aviation unit.

Some departments, such as philadelphia here where I live, require to already be a certified pilot. In other words, they do not train you. Some agencies, however, will teach you, perhaps state police.

Good Luck gh6912

Here in St Louis we are lucky enough to have a joint force of St Louis City, St Louis County and St Charle County that all share in the responsibilities for the three counties. It is not like these jobs are easy to get as there is rarely a vacancy. They require a pilots license and will not train for that, but will take a pilot and train to be a policeman. Kind of backwards to me, but cost effective. As for the individual requirements I could not tell you because I am not elidgeable for lack of a pilots license LOL.

I hope to join the military to get my license through them and get paid for doing it. I also agreed with my parents to take their old 4 door sedan or my sisters car when I turn 16 and take helicopter lessons rather then getting a nice used car. Thanks y'all for the info.
