ARMY AVIATION MAGAZINE, the official publication of the Army Aviation Association of America, Inc. (AAAA), serves as a significant line of communication with the membership. ARMY AVIATION brings comprehensive information about Army Aviation developments to our members and includes AAAA chapter news, membership directories, listings of new members and member address changes, Career Track and listings of recent distinguished graduates.
