Helicopter Training Squadron Eighteen (HT-18) was established in 1972 with the primary mission of transitioning student aviators through basic and advanced rotary wing pilot training. Basic training introduces and develops student skills in helicopter flight maneuvers as well as training in visual navigation and tactics. Advanced training completes an intensive curriculum of basic and radio instruments, and advanced tactics. The completion of this exacting training syllabus culminates in a highly trained and proficient all weather aviator.

The squadron was initially equipped with TH-1L Iroquois helicopter, a training variant of the the UH-1L.

Bell TH-1L 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.
