ASU-Beebe ROTC Cadets get Blackhawk Training
ROTC Cadets from ASU-Beebe today got the chance to fly aboard a U.S. Army Blackhawk helicopter, thanks to some training support provided by an aircraft and crew from the Arkansas National Guard's 77th Combat Aviation Brigade from Camp Robinson.
ASU-Beebe Chancellor Dr. Jennifer Methvin stopped by the landing site and thanked the aircrew for their service and the support of the training requirements for the ROTC program. The flight was part of ongoing training for the ROTC cadets to familiarize them with the safety procedures for operating around the military aircraft. Aircrew members briefed the cadets on ground and inflight safety, how to approach the aircraft if engines are running, loading and unloading procedures and safety equipment. #GoVanguard, #ASUB-ROTC, #ArkansasNationalGuard
