Description: 17th Aviation Group Helps Korean Aviation Company Get Off Ground NHA TRANG (1st AVN IO) - Ever since coming to Vietnam in 1966 to assist the Free World Forces, the Republic of Korea Army commanders have been looking ahead to the time when they could provide their own troops with organic aviation support. Just recently, their dreams have come true when the ROK 11th Aviation Company, under the 100th Log Command here, was born with the assistance of the 17th Aviation Group. Twelve of the 19 Korean pilots were trained at Army aviation schools in the U.S. They have seven Huey helicopters from the 17th Grp's 52nd Aviation Battalion.
