Our guest speakers, both aviation officers studying at the U.S. Army War College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, will address the history and effect of rotary wing aviation on the Army and Marine Corps. They will discuss how helicopters and tilt-rotors have changed warfighting, what the services learned by studying the Russian experience in Afghanistan, how those lessons changed doctrine in US rotary wing operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the uses of rotorcraft in conventional and counterinsurgency (COIN) operations.


Members of the public may attend this lecture by purchasing admission to the Museum, which will remain open after the program.

West Chester University students and faculty admitted free, with student ID.
