The Tennessee Valley Chapter of the Army Aviation Association of America (AAAA) will sponsor the 40th Annual Joseph P. Cribbins Aviation Product Symposium for interested members of industry and the aviation logistics and acquisition communities on February 12-13, 2014. The theme of this year’s symposium is “Sustaining Excellence in a Time of Transition.”

The purpose of the Aviation Product Symposium is to stimulate dialogue among industry executives, senior government officials and military leaders concerning the many challenges in support of Army aviation’s war-fighters.

The symposium will consist of individual and panel presentations with follow-on question and answer sessions. This year, the focus will be on the challenge of sustaining operations, maintaining, resetting and modernizing equipment in an unstable budget environment. We will discuss various bridging strategies for modernizing aging aviation equipment and sustaining the industrial base. We will also have updates from the Aviation leadership to include all of the Army Aviation Program Managers, in addition to presentations by government, industry and aviation field and aviation directorate keynote speakers. The Aviation Product Symposium will provide a unique opportunity for senior leaders from industry.

Key objective of this year’s symposium will be to build on last year’s discussions on how industry and the government can work together to continue to maintain the current standard of Army Aviation excellence during an extended period of wartime environment.

Joseph P. Cribbins
Army Aviation Hall of Fame 1980 Induction

Cribbins - 1980There is no individual who has had as much influence and long term impact on Army Aviation logistics as Joseph P. Cribbins. For over two decades, he served on the Army staff as the focal point on all matters pertaining to aviation logistics policy, plans, and procedures with the other Services, DoD, Congress, and the civilian aviation industry.

Mr. Cribbins was instrumental in establishing the DA's Aviation Logistics Office, and for the introduction of a staff that was oriented towards weapons systems, one having full review over all aspects of aviation logistics, including acquisition, R&D, production, distribution, maintenance, and supply activities.

His depth of understanding and innovative approaches as well as his application of intensive management procedures improved overall logistical efficiency, increased aircraft operational readiness, decreased maintenance manhours and spare parts consumption, and provided aviation unit commanders with a great response and flexibility.

Under Mr. Cribbins, Army Aviation logistics became a leader in innovative and unique logistics procedures and systems that are being more frequently emulated by the rest of the Army logistical community. His unexcelled dedication and many contributions to Army Aviation have earned him the title of "Mr. Army Aviation Logistics".
