Mechanic working on helicopter

The Aviation Command is able to function through the efforts of approximately 160 men and women. Without any link in our chain, the Command will not function. From the flight crews to the mechanics, from the command staff to the medical director, each one of us has an integral role. Although the flight crews at the helicopter sections are the most visible on a daily basis, they could not fly without the hard work of the rest of the Command. Please follow the links on the left to learn about who we are and what we do.
