3rd Combat Aviation Brigade Post Deployment Update; 30 August 2018

Savannah – Last week, I posted that the 3rd Combat Aviation Brigade is back in the air following its return from a deployment.  During my last couple of visits home in Savannah, I’ve had the chance to monitor their evening activity so in turn, I’ve been able to update the current list of 3rd Combat Aviation Aircraft. Aircraft with question marks after the unit designation are educated guesses on the unit and are unconfirmed at this time; see the footnotes for further information.

For those that may not be familiar, the 3rd Combat Aviation Brigade is organized into three flying battalions. 2-3 AVN is the General Support Aviation Battalion; its A Company flies UH-60Ls, its B Company flies CH-47Fs, and its C Company flies HH-60Ms. 3-17 Cavalry is the Attack Helicopter Squadron and flies AH-64Ds. 4-3 AVN is the Assault Helicopter Battalion and flies UH-60Ms.

As I hear more 3rd Combat Aviation Brigade aircraft and am able to identify them, I’ll add them to the list and post more updates. As always, updates and corrections are requested.


  1. 94-26587 was previously an A/2-3 AVN aircraft was heard up until 2009 but not heard between 2009 and 2018. I’m guessing it is still an A/2-3 AVN aircraft because C/2-3 AVN converted to the HH-60M and 4-3 AVN converted to the UH-60M.
  2. The identification of 20388, 20397, 20416, and 20422 as 4-3 AVN UH-60Ms comes from logging them on 4-3 AVN’s Ops frequency 43.625 NFM.
