Fort Rucker Rotary Wing Flight Training, Support, and Services at U.S. Army Training & Doctrine Command (TRADOC)
Amentum’s Rotary Wing Flight Training organization provides education and training for initial-entry pilots from the Army, Air Force, and allied nations who are learning to fly rotary-wing aircraft, as well as for experienced military pilots earning their designation as instrument flight examiners. In order to deliver this no-fail mission, Amentum’s exceptionally skilled team of more than 300 instructors provides classroom academic instruction and hands-on flight instruction in three separate aircraft types, full-motion aircraft simulators, and cutting-edge virtual reality technology. Delivering flight training during the day, at night, and in instrument and night-vision goggle conditions, Amentum’s flight instructors teach all aspects of airmanship, from basic flight handling skills to advanced navigation and tactical skills. With more than 2.7 million flight hours collectively, and an unmatched safety record – several of our instructors have been recognized by the FAA for 50 years of accident-free flying – Amentum’s experienced staff remains intimately involved in the continual evolution of the flight training program in support of Fort Rucker, and absolutely integral to developing future generations of military aviators.
