Helicopter Pilot

Just something that I have never known.
Do the helicopter pilots stay on base with Army or do they go with the Air force?

Yes meaning ... as a helicopter pilot, you can find yourself staying on an Army base, or at an Air Force base, or going at sea in ships. There are some helicopters that provide their support from all of these locations and to all three environments.

It's the nature of helicopters to act in support of everybody. And little known secret here: Shhhh! Don't tell anyone, but helicopters don't necessarily need an airport, unlike their fixed wing brethren.  ;)
