Australian Army Aviation Corps (1.20 mins)

The Australian Army soldiers who make up the Australian Army Aviation Corps are highly skilled and dedicated professionals who are capable of maintaining and operating our various helicopters in the most challenging environments in order to help Army fight and win on land as well as support the Australian community and communities overseas in emergencies. Australian Army Aviation Corps pilots, loadmasters, technicians and other ground crew are typically posted to the Army Aviation Training Centre at Oakey in Queensland or one of Army’s three flying regiments: 1st Aviation Regiment in Darwin, 5th Aviation Regiment in Townsville and 6th Aviation Regiment in Sydney. Army aviation traces its origins to the Australian Flying Corps, which was created just prior to the First World War in 1912 to best employ fixed-wing aircraft on the battlefield. Today, the Australian Army Aviation Corps operates Sikorsky S-70A-9 Black Hawk, Boeing CH-47D Chinook, Eurocopter Tiger armed reconnaissance and MRH-90 Taipan multi-role helicopters.
