Army Aviation Restructuring Could Keep Apache Helicopters in North Carolina National Guard

A special commission on the future of the Army is calling for a compromise in aviation restructuring that could keep AH-64 Apache helicopters in the North Carolina National Guard.

The National Commission on the Future of the Army report was released Thursday, days ahead of its deadline to issue recommendations to Congress.

The report proposed a middle ground between the Army’s Aviation Restructure Initiative, which would have seen all of the National Guard Apache helicopters transferred to the active force, and the counterproposal made by the National Guard Bureau, which would have kept the six current National Guard Apache battalions intact.
