Fort Rucker is a U.S. Army post located in Alabama. It is primarily a training base and is the home of the United States Army Aviation Center of Excellence (USAACE), which trains pilots for both the Army and other branches of the military. The post is the primary flight training base for Army Aviation and is home to the United States Army Aviation Technical Test Center (USATTC), which conducts developmental aircraft testing for Army Aviation.
As of my knowledge cutoff in September 2021, Fort Rucker is also the home of the U.S. Army Warrant Officer Career College and hosts various other training institutions, including the Army Aviation Medical Research Laboratory.
The base was named after a Civil War officer, Confederate General Edmund Rucker. The post is the heartbeat of Army Aviation, supplying trained men and women to fight and win on the modern battlefield.
