The Army Aviation Association of America (AAAA) was formed in early 1957 by a small group of senior aviation officers in the active Army, the Reserve Forces of the U.S. Army, and Industry.
Modeled after several of the professional-technical societies in existence, the AAAA has grown rapidly, receiving membership support of the majority of those military and civilian persons having an interest in this segment of the Armed Forces.
AAAA started with 1,407 members and just two chapters, both at Fort Rucker. It has grown now to more than 14,700 members and more than 66 chapters worldwide.
Over the years, AAAA has served as the professional cohesive force that has held the Army Aviation community together , creating a forum for aviators in the diverse branches to exchange ideas and share experiences. Since the formation of the Aviation Branch in 1983, AAAA has continued to foster the professional development of its members through programs at both the chapter and national level.
AAAA has also taken positions and presented the membership's interests to the Army and Legislative branch. For example, AAAA went to bat for Army Aviators on the Aviation Career Improvement Act, aggressively supporting equalization of flight pay among the services and among all ranks, commissioned and warrant officers.
You can count on AAAA to represent the membership on issues having an impact on Army Aviation. As our history demonstrates, we are dedicated to meeting the needs of the Army Aviation Community.
