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.

AAAA Central Florida Chapter Annual Scholarship Golf Tournament

2015 AAAA Scholarship Golf Tournament

Our annual scholarship golf tournament was held on Friday the 19th of June 2015 at the Shingle Creek Golf Club in Orlando.  The event was sold out again and a full field enjoyed a beautiful morning in the Florida weather.  A great time was had by all with various hole activities, topped by an excellent lunch and fun raffle prizes. We had a wonderful day with friends of AAAA and many attendees who were in town for the Annual Training Symposium being held on the two days before the event.

We'd like to thank our Golf Tournament Sponsors for their support and making this event a great one.  Our sponsors are shown on our SPONSORS page.
