The 1st Aviation Regiment is an Australian Army aviation unit and is part of the 16th (Aviation) Brigade. The Regiment was formed on 26 April 1966 as the 1st Division Army Aviation Regiment and was re-designated the 1st Aviation Regiment in March 1967. While the Regiment has historically operated a mix of fixed wing aircraft and helicopters, it is currently being re-equipped with the Tiger Armed Reconnaissance Helicopter and is in the process of re-locating to newly constructed facilities at Robertson Barracks in Darwin.
