Army Aviation Looking to Grow

The U.S. Army Aviation branch would like to grow its force structure and for starters is proposing to add two companies of CH-47 Chinook cargo helicopters to the 101st Airborne Division. “There are some areas in Army aviation that we think potentially need to be reconsidered for force structure growth,” Maj. Gen. Frank Tate, director of aviation for the Army’s operations, plans and training branch, said last week. The possibility of expanding Army aviation follows other force structure changes in the service, including the addition of security force assistance brigades, reports Defense News.
