The purpose of AAAA is to support the United States Army Aviation Soldier and Family.  This statement becomes the touchstone for National and Chapter decisions, actions, and activities.  The Thunderbird Chapter was established in 2012 and is located in Oklahoma with membership throughout the state. Our membership is made up of current and past members of the Oklahoma Army National Guard, industry partners, and others who have a desire to support the Army aviation family.


AAAA Thunderbird Chapter's purpose is to support the Oklahoma Army National Guard Aviation family through various programs and events.  A few of the ways we support are through financial support to family readiness programs, welcome home and deployment ceremonies, and scholarships.   AAAA facilitates growth and enhancement of the Army Aviation program by bringing industry partners and service members together to create better and safer ways to meet the Army Aviation mission.  Membership in the organization is open to anyone and all are welcome.
