Panelists discussed plans under the U.S. Army’s Aviation Restructure Initiative to transfer Apache attack helicopters from the National Guard to the active force to take over reconnaissance missions currently flown by the aging Kiowa Warrior helicopters. The initiative should save the army $12 billion of the amount lost to budget sequestration.

“An Update on the Army Aviation Restructure Initiative” was a program of the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

“Sequestration,” a legal procedure in which every federal agency has the same percentage of its budget taken back in order to cut deficit spending, was part of a debt ceiling and tax increase agreement for the Budget Control Act of 2011 and began March 1, 2013. close
