The Central Florida Chapter was founded in 1985 and was the host chapter for the 1986 and 2005 AAAA National Conventions held in Orlando, Florida. Since 1985 the Chapter has grown in membership, been active in our community, and provided quality professional sessions for its members. Even though the Central Florida Chapter does not have a local Army Aviation unit nearby, the Chapter has steadily maintained its membership and it's focus on the Aviation Soldier.
