"I would have three helicopters if it weren't for the Post-9/11 GI Bill," said John Stonecipher, the owner of Guidance Aviation, which has 23 helicopters and a staff of 108 training nearly 200 students - most of them veterans - in Prescott and a second location in Baton Rouge, La.

Student pilots practice landing on a houseboat Stonecipher keeps at Lake Powell.
Stonecipher said the GI Bill is crucial to meet the demand for helicopter pilots. The training his company provides - including time in turbine helicopters - helps veterans land the best jobs available, he said.
He acknowledged that the bill has been an enormous boost to his business, which he said had revenues of more than $15 million last year.
At the same time, he said, the company has had to take on more than $12 million in debt in order to buy enough helicopters to meet the growing demand for training.
"There's a tremendous amount of risk associated with this," he said.
In 2013, the U.S. Small Business Administration named Stonecipher "small-businessman of the year" for his success and commitment to veterans.
Stonecipher said that ground school classes toward an aviation degree at Yavapai were a benefit for his employees. His wife had wanted to learn to fly but found she couldn't because of back problems, he said.
Stonecipher said he added four Robinson R-66 turbine helicopters to his fleet to remain competitive with Upper Limit in recruiting veterans.
