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.

Join CHPA at the 2014 Quad-A Convention

CHPA will be present at the Quad A Convention at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel, Nashville, TN from May 4 to 6.  We invite you all to come by the CHPA booth #4500, meet some of our members and  get to know more about CHPA.  They'll be on hand every day to answer your questions and provide you the opportunity to join or renew your membership.


Planning is underway for the 2014 Convention and Annual Business Meeting

All information on the 2014 Convention will be posted here on the website as it becomes available. Just hover your cursor over "About Us" on the top menu bar and click on "Annual Convention" in the drop down menu. Be sure to check back periodically for updates as they become available.


CHPA has a Group on Facebook! 

     CHPA has an updated group on Facebook.  A few years ago we established a presence on the social networking site, Myspace.  Over time that site had fewer visitors as most folks shifted to Facebook.  We had some members who established a CHPA Facebook page but those pages have fallen into disuse and weren't updated.  Now CHPA has a Facebook group that is growing and vibrant and will be maintained by our Executive Director.  Click here to check it out, or if you're already a Facebook Fan, just search for "Combat Helicopter Pilots Association the next time your keeping up with friends and family and join the conversation.  Just remember to select the CHPA group; not the "interest" or "Causes."  See you there.
