The Golden Knights Aviation Team, known as “Team 6” is responsible for operating and maintaining the Golden Knights’ fleet of aircraft. The team is always searching for talented, motivated personnel to join the Golden Knights.
We require the utmost professionalism and dedication, both as an expert in your aviation field and as a representative of the United States Army to the American public.

Officers and NCOs considering assignment to Team 6 should be prepared to work hard and utilize initiative to accomplish a very unique aviation mission.

- Expect heavy operational utilization – Team members spend about 120 days a year TDY, including a 60-day training phase every winter in Florida
- Be willing to take on a four-year assignment
- Be willing and self-motivated and eager to adapt to a non-traditional work environment
- Be willing to work a flexible schedule
