Aviation brigade confirms Fort Carson plans

Filed under: Daily News | Tags:

Sen. Mark Udall’s office confirmed yesterday that a 120-helicopter, 2,800-soldier aviation brigade will move to Fort Carson.

The news will mean that the Mountain Post’s soldier population will grow to nearly 30,000 and bring an estimated $300 million in construction spending to house the unit.

Details on the timing of the move were to be released later Monday.

The brigade would be formed at Fort Carson in 2013.
