Heheh Gunship2000 is a nice Apache sim.

Enemy engaged Apache vs Havok is nice too.

Helo sims are pretty much dead so those are best imo.

go to college.

much more opportunities will be opened up to you. if you still want to join the military, youre still better off because the military usually doesnt put high school grads in aircrafts. usually hs grads are grunts or do chores on the ground. take my advice. i know an adequate amount about the military for i had to research (b/c i wanted to go air force and so i applied to air force academy and got an appointment. declined it tho)

if not, then longbow 2

If you want to fly for the military, you must be a Commissioned Officer, meaning you must have a college degree. The only exception to this rule, that I know of, is that the Army Warrant Officer program, which allows W.O.s to fly helos.

Keep in mind, the military can send you to college on their tab, provided you serve a period (I believe it's 5 years?) as an Officer upon graduation.

Elite1499 is correct, Enlisted servicemembers are not allowed to be pilots. That's not to say, however, that they are all "grunts," stuck doing chores on the ground - though it can seem like that; at least my 4 years in uniform did!http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif

I should add that, while Enlisted personnel cannot be pilots, they can be aircrew, i.e. gunners, flight engineers, rescue divers, etc..

Any experience, College or Military, will only be as good or as bad as you make it. However, it's naivé to say "you got a better future" one way or the other, without knowing what eiter entails.

For example, my two best friends and I finished high school in 1998. They went to college, I joined the Navy. Flash forward to 2004, my college tuition is being paid for by the government, with enough left over to cover the rent. I've visited 16 different countries, they've never traveled outside the US. My two friends have both earned Bachelor's degrees - One works at Ikea, the other delivers for Domino's. Both have yet to move from their parent's homes. I got my job with a Lockheed-Martin subcontractor not because of a college degree, but because of my military service.

It's only what you make of it.

Warrant Officers in the US Army also need college, I believe. Maybe the degree is less than the commisioned requirement. Associate, perhaps.... I can ask my dad, he retired a CW5. I believe he did have to go back to college at one piont to get the higher grades of Warrant. I know he has a Master's in Business, but I don't know if it's a requirement of the grade. He wasn't a pilot, though, he started out as an enlisted technician. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/11.gif

What if there were no hypothetical questions?
