JBLE maintains the flow of hydraulic mechanics

Hydraulics are required in all aviation airframes, from starting the aircraft, to landing gear, and the ability to overcome the aerodynamic feedback forces generated in flight. For the U.S. Army, this also requires a constant flow of Soldiers to pass through the 128th Aviation Brigade’s aircraft pneudraulics repairer, 15H military operational specialty (MOS), course at Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Virginia. The 14-week long course provides Soldiers with the critical starting point to learn about pneudraulic systems, properties, and tools of the trade for the 15H, ultimately keeping helicopters mission ready.
