Half a linear foot of documents detail information on helicopter operations during the Vietnam Conflict. The documents provide general information, but do not specifically mention the units involved in each operation. The bulk of the documents date from the war period. This is one series of the Vietnam Helicopter Pilots Association Collection.
The Vietnam Helicopter Pilots Association (VHPA), is a non-profit war veterans organization filed under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service and is dedicated to enhancing and accrediting the cohesiveness, esprit de corps, and traditions of valor of rotary wing aircrews that flew in Southeast Asia during the Vietnam Era. Currently, the VHPA has a membership of over 9,400 helicopter pilots from around the world. It has a web site located at: http://www.vhpa.org.
