ADFA is different to civilian universities; it’s hard and challenging, but at the same time relaxed because you have the chance to study and do well, and not worry about the financial side of things. You also do so many other exciting things that you wouldn’t get to do at a civilian university that keep you motivated: Black Hawk flights, base tours and gliding.

I have always had an interest in aviation, not so much rotary but mainly fixed wing, but when I started looking into ADFA and the Army and Navy, the helicopters that they flew started to interest me more.
