AH-64 AIT repairers, masters of the airframe

By Airman 1st Class Monica Roybal 633rd Air Base Wing Public Affairs

U.S. Army Advanced Individual Training students assigned to the 222nd Aviation Regiment, 1st Aviation Battalion, 128th Aviation Brigade spend more than six months studying the Apache AH-64’s various systems and components during the AH-64 Armament/Electrical/Avionic Systems Repairer course at Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Virginia.

Preventative maintenance and routine inspections are crucial elements of the repairer’s duty since Army missions rely heavily on the safe operation of these helicopters. The Soldiers graduate the course with proficiency in weapons and sighting systems, fire control units, avionics and stabilization systems.

Throughout the course, students learn electrical theory, troubleshooting procedures, soldering techniques and electrical system maintenance in a classroom environment in conjunction with hands-on training in the field.
