Dear AAAA Members,

The 2020 AAAA Aircraft Survivability Equipment Symposium scheduled for December 7-8, 2020 in Kissimmee, Florida is now cancelled.

In view of the surge of COVID-19 throughout the United States, MG Jeff Schlosser Ret, AAAA President, Bill Harris, Executive Director, and the National Executive Group have concluded that current conditions will not yet safely allow Department of Defense personnel to attend the event.  

We are tracking conditions every day and are hopeful that conditions will improve in a few months and allow the re-scheduled Joseph P. Cribbins Symposium to take place 20-22 January 2021.

We are anxious to unite as a community and look forward to seeing you all as soon as conditions for a safe and successful event warrant!


William Harris
Executive Director
Army Aviation Association of America

Later as a brigade and division commander at war, I found myself often consumed with battlefield logistics and maintenance as well as future sustainment of my formations and their equipment. I came to realize the truth of that old axiom: in war, armchair warriors use little hands on big maps to spout off tactics and strategy; true masters at the profession of arms focus first on logistics to ensure success.  Read More
