The 8th Battalion, 229th Aviation was activated in the US Army Reserve on September 17, 1989 at Fort Knox in Kentucky. The 8th Battalion first received the Apache helicopter in 1992 and in October 2005 they began training for the AH-64D Longbow and became the 8th Battalion, 229th Aviation Regiment. In the fall of 2014 229th exchanged their AH-64Ds for the UH-60 Blackhawk and became an assault helicopter battalion.

The AH-64 Apache is a twin-engine attack helicopter operated by the U.S. Army and the military forces of several other countries. Originally developed by Hughes Helicopters in the 1970s as a replacement for the Bell AH-1 Cobra, the Apache is now built by Boeing. The YAH-64 prototype was first flown on September 30, 1975, with the production model entering service in 1986. The AH-64 has served in conflicts in Panama, the Persian Gulf, Kosovo, Afghanistan and Iraq. Over 2,000 have been produced to date in several variants.

The AH-64D Apache Longbow prototype was first flown on May 14 1992. It provided a quantum leap in capabilities over the AH-64A and incorporated advanced avionics, digital enhancements and communications upgrades. The first production AH-64D was delivered to the U.S. Army in March 1997.
