The 175th Aviation Company was activated on 1 September 1966 and deployed to South Vietnam arriving at Vinh Long in September 1966. Upon arrival the company immediately began in-country origination and training and was soon renamed as the 175th Assault Helicopter Company. The company's UH-1 Helicopters were divided into three flight platoons: Two Lift Platoons known as the "Outlaws" and One Armed Helicopter Platoon known as the "Mavericks".

Bell UH-1 Huey

Designed to meet a US Army requirement for a medical evacuation (MEDEVAC) and general utility helicopter, the UH-1 Huey was first flown on October 20, 1956. Nicknamed "Huey" because of its original "HU-1" designation, this aircraft became famous during the Vietnam War, where 7,000 of them served in a variety of roles, from MEDEVAC and search and rescue to troop transport, air assault and ground attack. As a troop transporter, the Huey revolutionized warfare, giving the Army the ability to strategically position troops in various locations that were otherwise difficult to reach in the heavy jungle environment.
