Hey guys, I was reading around and it looks like there's a ton of good information on here. I'm considering applying for BLUE 21, as I recently completed my bachelor's and I'm a private pilot. My knowledge of the Coast Guard is limited to what I've been able to find over the course of multiple google searches. I'm trying to get an accurate picture as to what life is like day-to-day as a USCG pilot. The primary reason I would be joining would be to fly. At this point I have no idea what collateral duties are (or specifically, what examples of them are). I read in another post that helo pilots average 25-35 hours a month. What's the rest of the time look like? If I'm coming in with zero military experience, do you any of you guys have any insight as to what the path looks like (what different steps I'd go through before actually getting assigned somewhere)? Thanks!
