Combat Rotary Flight Training is for active students who wish to earn their combat-effective qualification badge. Close Air Support (CAS) is an integral part of the battlefield and requires excellent coordination with friendly ground forces, usually with Joint Terminal Attack Controllers (JTAC)s.  Many airframes can fill the role of CAS, but this class will focus on rotary wing CAS. Allies will rely on a combat-effective pilot that can get the job done right without error or endangering friendly units in close situations. One must successfully complete all phases and graduate Advanced Rotary Flight Training before applying for Combat Rotary Flight Training. The duration of this training is generally two 2-hour classes over one week.


Boeing AH-64 Apache


The Boeing AH-64 Apache is a four-blade, twin-turboshaft attack helicopter with a tailwheel-type landing gear arrangement, and a tandem cockpit for a two-man crew. It features a nose-mounted sensor suite for target acquisition and night vision systems. It is armed with a 30 mm (1.18 in) M230 chain gun carried between the main landing gear, under the aircraft's forward fuselage. It has four hardpoints mounted on stub-wing pylons, typically carrying a mixture of AGM-114 Hellfire missiles and Hydra 70 rocket pods. The AH-64 has a large amount of systems redundancy to improve combat survivability


Apache Helicopters are designed to be lethal killing machines. This video shows just how deadly they are, with combat/gun tape footage, plus takeoff and landing scenes.
