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.”
