Membership in CHPA is open to Active Duty, Retired and Veteran helicopter aircrew members from all branches of service and all wars in which the US and/or United Kingdom have flown helicopters.

In addition to the camaraderie associated with a gathering of Combat Helicopter Aircrews, CHPA provides mentoring and other services to current and former pilots and crewmembers and the families of our fallen warriors who've been left behind.  Part of our mentoring program includes career assistance and guidance to individuals dealing with issues relating to claims and other benefits at the Department of Veterans Affairs.  Apply for membership today to foster the legacy of the Combat Helicopter Aircrew.

Please also note that your hotel reservations are completely separate from the Convention registration.  Time is also of the essence for making your hotel reservations.  Hotel reservations must be made no later than August 8 in order to guarantee receiving the negotiated room rate, which is an excellent deal from this hotel in this area.  After August 8, the rate may change based on room availability.  The convention room rate is also available for three days prior and three days after the convention if you'd like to arrive early or leave late to take advantage of all the area has to offer.  Hotel reservations can easily be made online at  Just go to the website and click on "reservations."  This will take you to the reservations page where you will click on "groups" and enter the CHPA group code of COMBA090714, then complete your reservation.  If you want to take advantage of early arrival or later departure give the hotel a call at 800-843-7755.  Remember to mention you'll be attending the Combat Helicopter Pilots Association Convention when you call.

We look forward to meeting you and spending time with you in Riverside.

CHPA's Christmas Boxes for the Troops is Underway 

CHPA is pleased to announce the 2014 Christmas Boxes for the Troops project is underway.  Last year CHPA, with the generous sponsorship of members and supporters, sent 70 boxes of home style goodies to aviation soldiers deployed to Afghanistan and we're looking to do more this year.  We've already identified a unit that will be in country over the Christmas 2014 holidays and we'll be working on compiling names and addresses to send the boxes out.  We know it's August but now is not too early to get started on this very worthwhile project.  Click here to contribute online.  Each box is $30 and you can sponsor up to 6 boxes using the online form.  If you wish to sponsor more just give us a call at 800-832-5144 and we'll take care of it.
