Refurbished aircraft provides operational training
JOINT BASE LANGLEY-EUSTIS, Va. —
The CH-47 Chinook and the UH-60M Blackhawks are advanced multi-purpose helicopters but with a different set of missions. However, one thing is consistent with both aircraft – the U.S. Army Soldiers that work on them.
The 128th Aviation Brigade ensures that the Soldiers’ training is realistic, relevant, and rigorous, enabling them to make a positive impact at their first duty assignment. One of the ways the Soldiers are trained is with the various Chinook and the Blackhawk trainers.
