A lot of them do go to HAA right after tours, with very little experience doing any kind of technical flying or exposure severe weather / flying at minimums. Then they’re afraid to fly in anything less than CAVU or, on the other extreme, go way outside of their experience and kill everyone going IIMC. You get what you pay for, but that seems to be too hard for the HAA community to comprehend.

The rest go on to fly utility, offshore, ag, corporate, etc. And once getting experience in one of those areas, tend to stay put because it pays way more than those POS air med corporations. Those that realize what a joke the helicopter industry is, and have the ability to start a new career, are leaving for RTP. Low hour military pilots are also doing RTP because no one will hire them on the civilian side.
