“Training for Excellence!”

The training site is located at Fort Indiantown Gap, Annville, PA on Muir Army Airfield and has been in operation since 1981. The Eastern AATS is fully accredited by The Army School System (TASS) as a “Learning Institution of Excellence” charged to conduct National Guard Bureau directed training. This training includes individual aircrew qualification, non-commissioned officer professional education, and enlisted military occupational and additional skill identifier training in our primary area of focus on utility and cargo rotary-wing aircraft. The Eastern AATS strives to provide America’s Army and international aircrew members the best possible instruction and support in formal courses of instruction as well as in flight simulation training on the UH-60, CH-47, and UH-72 aircraft. A modern co-located dormitory and medical clinic enhance soldier quality of life and allow the staff of 118 military personnel and civilian contractors to fully support the development of the warrior spirit in the Soldiers that train here.

Our Location
