As a current AMC pilot for the last 10 years, I can tell you that I do not feel comfortable with the future. Here is my take: If you are a community based program there is a 50% chance you will close in the next few years. Hospital, ADM, or military contracts are relatively secure. The money comes in regardless if you fly. However, when contracts are up for renewal, they can go bye-bye. Nothing is for sure in this industry. The days of a base staying open for 20+ years are gone. I have been through a base closure. It is not fun. Always have a plan B.
