The Army provides our Nation with the ability to prevent, shape and win in the land domain. Army Aviation is a professional, modernized aviation force focused on our ground forces while generating options for Combatant Commanders in any condition through increased Reach, Protection and Lethality – to win in an ever increasingly complex world. The AUSA Army Aviation Hot Topic provides a forum for professional dialogue among senior Government officials, military leaders and industry executives regarding Army Aviation’s approach to man, equip, train and sustain the current and future Aviation force to meet today’s global commitments and to conduct Multi-Domain Operations in support of the Joint Force of the future.
