In terms of careers in the aerospace and transportation industries, research by the United States Department of Labor Statistics indicates that, in 2009, helicopter pilot employment was projected to grow at a faster-than-average rate of 10 to 12 percent over the next ten years. There is a continual need for experienced commercial flight- and military-trained helicopter pilots to fly chartered and privately owned helicopters for business and personal travel. In addition, around the globe, the health care industry relies on highly trained helicopter pilots who can transport emergency patients to medical facilities. Helicopter pilots can expect that there will be many opportunities to work for employment firms, military and police organizations, television news shows, and private citizens who have the means to charter or own helicopters.
