The 168th Aviation Regiment is an aviation regiment of the United States Army.
The 1st Battalion (General Support), 168th Aviation Regiment (GSAB), can trace its history back to 1959 when it was originally organized as the 41st Aviation Company in the Washington Army National Guard located at Camp Murray, Tacoma, Washington. Over the next fifty years the battalion would be reorganized several different times to meet the changing needs of the U.S. Army. In 1988 the 1-168th AVN was designated as an attack battalion consisting of AH-1 Cobras and OH-58 Kiowa helicopters.
