S3 ARMA AVIATION CENTER OF EXCELLENCE The S3 ArmA Aviation Center of Excellence is conducting Rotary flight training in the month of October. This training is open to all troopers of the Regiment, regardless of MOS. We will be running the Ground School, Basic Rotary Wing and Advanced Rotary Wing courses. While these courses must be completed in order, they may be done over any period of time that suits the individual student - there is no time-out period.
