One of the unique functions of the AAHF is to obtain, restore and maintain in flyable condition, examples of historic aircraft representing Army Aviation from Vietnam to present. No other known educational foundation is totally dedicated to preserving only flyable U.S. Army Aviation aircraft for future generations of American to experience.
Following acquisition of an aircraft, the AAHF has four primary tasks:
- Whenever possible, to locate veterans who are experienced with the aircraft (or an aircraft of similar characteristics), to lead a group of AAHF volunteers in it�s restoration and operation.
- The restoration of the aircraft to its original Army Specifications.
- Research the aircraft�s Military history and integrate it into our educational presentations.
- Ensure the aircraft and crew are maintained to high operational and safety standards in full compliance with F.A.A. regulations.
