Annual Worldwide Aviation Logistics Conference held in Huntsville

Can the U.S. Army improve aviation readiness rates consistently above 75 percent? That is the burning question that more than 60 senior Army aviators, logisticians and maintainers from across the Aviation Branch tackled during the 2019 Worldwide Aviation Logistics Conference, held at the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command Headquarters in Huntsville May 21-23.

Lt. Col. James Barber, the Army?s G-4 Aviation Logistics Division Chief, kicked-off the WALC by posing this question and discussing the importance of their efforts during the conference.

?The recommendations we produce will be used by senior Army Aviation leaders to address sustainment issues and close known and emerging capability gaps,? said Barber. ?We must have one Aviation Branch effort focused on future readiness and combat capability.?


Army Aviation leadership examines sustainment model with Navy

Senior leaders from the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command met with the senior leaders from the Naval Air Systems Command, Jan. 8, to discuss the Army Aviation sustainable materiel readiness structure and compare it to the Navy?s structure.

?The Navy is looking at our best practices and asking how they can adopt and incorporate some of those practices,? explained Col. Shawn Prickett, AMCOM Chief of Staff. ?They do not have a command that equates to what AMCOM does, so they want to see how we do business.?
