American Helicopter Society. He held some of the highest positions in Marine Corps aviation and was instrumental in expanding the Marine Corps helicopter program. To com- memorate all that General McCutcheon had done for Marine Corps aviation, the airfield at Marine Corps Air Station New River was renamed McCutcheon Field in 1972. While all military aviators share a common bond, Naval Aviators in particular have a very distinct heritage. Naval hel- icopter pilots deploy aboard ships at sea and conduct over water operations such as search and rescue and underway ver- tical replenishment. They go through a common flight train- ing program in the Navy’s HT squadrons at Whiting Field in Milton, FL. The Coast Guard, Marine Corps and Navy hel- icopter programs have a long intertwined history that has scene significant contributions by many dedicated rotary- wing pilots. Without the men described above the naval heli- copter operations of today would not be possible. abc
