Brand Experience Video: Joel Beckett

Listen to HAA and Portland Community College graduate Joel Beckett speak about his flight training experience. Joel was around aviation from a very young age and knew this was the career path for him. After completing his military service, he enrolled in the Portland Community College program which allows students to get their aviation degree in tandem with their pilot certifications. Joel used his GI Bill® benefits to help him pay for his training and take that next toward a career he had dreamed about since childhood. As an alumni, Joel has been able to use the knowledge and skills he learned at HAA to successfully transition into the helicopter industry and begin flying exciting and diverse missions.
