To provide the American public an opportunity to experience the rich heritage of Army Aviation by participating in aerial flight in those legacy aircraft that served in combat and were flown by Army crews. To educate those who are unaware of the importance of Army Aviation and the role it played in armed conflicts by providing the troops with the support needed to achieve their mission and to ensure their survival on the battlefield.
“A big thank you to The Friends of Army Aviation for helping my dream become a reality.”
As time passes, the history and legacy of the American Soldier fades into distant memory. The contributions made by these patriotic Americans should not be lost. The ability to keep these accomplishments alive is paramount in our mission. Preserving the rich history of Army Aviation and providing the American citizen the opportunity to fully appreciate the contributions made by these legacy aircraft, and the men who flew them, in support of the soldier on the ground, ensures the memory will live on for future generations.
