Been browsing the forums for the last month or so. A few threads here always pop up when I Google Alaska bush flying or some variation. Currently serving in the Navy in a rate totally unrelated to aviation however I took an introductory flight class long before I enlisted and was instantly hooked, just never had the financial means to achieve the dream, until now. Looking to use my GI Bill at UAA to get the B.S. in Professional Piloting. I was wondering if anyone here had any experiences (good or bad) with the UAA program? AKSoldier on here was kind enough to answer my emails. (Thanks man!) However more opinions/experiences are always welcomed. Will likely be making the move after my contract is up in the early spring of 2015. Ultimately I would love to fly float planes and work out of the Juneau area, but it's not do or die on that aspect and would probably be happy anywhere, as long as I can get in the air. Single guy with no kids or major financial responsibilities so looking to take the plunge before it's too late!
Searching through the threads here I see a lot of wisdom and experience, hopefully some of you gents will be generous enough to pass some of that on to me. Thanks!
