1ST COMBAT AVIATION BRIGADE (1CAB)





  

"Demon" Brigade

The Combat Aviation Brigade, 1st Infantry Division is the Army Aviation formation of the United States Army's 1st Infantry Division. The current commander of this brigade is Colonel Chad Corrigan.

The Combat Aviation Brigade, 1st Infantry Division, was originally formed from the assets of the Aviation Brigade, 1st Armored Division, which had been created from the assets of 1st Armored Division's 501st Aviation Battalion on 17 April 1986. Colonel James W. Lloyd, the first Aviation Brigade Commander, accepted the unit colors from Major General Dave R. Palmer, Commanding General, of the 1st Armored Division. (Note: Although often referred to as the "4th Brigade," the United States Army Center of Military History has confirmed that divisional aviation brigades are not numbered. The only exceptions were the 101st and 159th Combat Aviation Brigades in the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), which had two aviation brigades. The 159th has since been inactivated and the other brigade was concurrently redesignated as the Combat Aviation Brigade, 101st Airborne Division.)

When formed, the Brigade consisted of the 10th and 501st Aviation Battalions, the 220th Aviation Company (Assault Helicopter), the 244th Aviation Company (Command Aviation), and the 61st Aviation Company (Maintenance). Brigade aircraft included 22 Bell AH-1 Cobras, 38 Bell OH-58 Kiowas, and 30 Bell UH-1 Iroquois helicopters.
