Bright questions generals during House subcommittee hearing
As a member of the subcommittee, he directed questions this morning to Brig. Gen. Walter Davis, Director of Army Aviation, and Brig. Gen. William T. Crosby, Program Executive Officer, Aviation during a hearing on Army Aviation Programs.
His questions relate to a potential expansion of capabilities at Fort Rucker, as Secretary of Defense Robert Gates included $500 million in his FY10 budget to increase training of pilots and maintenance crews for Army helicopters. Fort Rucker is the aviation hub for the Army.
No significant details were announced in the hearing, but the generals said they anticipate increased student numbers and infrastructure at Rucker.
