The 8th Battalion, 229th Aviation was activated in the Army Reserve on September 17, 1989 at Fort Knox, Kentucky granted permission by the AVG for the 8th-229th to use their logo and name so they became the Flying Tigers. The 8th Battalion first received the Apache helicopter in 1992 and in October 2005 began training for the AH-64D Longbow and became the 8th Battalion, 229th Aviation Regiment. In the fall of 2014 8th-229th exchanged their AH-64Ds for the UH-60 Blackhawk and became an assault helicopter battalion.

Hughes AH-64D Longbow Apache

Designed to meet a US Army requirement for an advanced attack helicopter, the AH-64 was first flown on September 30th, 1975. Called "The Apache," this formidable helicopter replaced the AH-1 Cobra as the principal attack helicopter for the US Army. At the time of its introduction, the Apache was revolutionary, with an innovative helmet mounted display and improved crash survivability. It is heavily armored and has been called a "Flying Tank," not only because of its defenses but also because of its ability to inspire fear on the battlefield. The Apache has become a symbol of Army airpower, serving in both Gulf Wars and in Afghanistan.
