Our Story

Army Aviation Center Federal Credit Union (AACFCU) was chartered on August 18, 1966 during the height of the Vietnam Conflict.  As soldiers were deployed, they and their families needed access to low-cost financial services while stationed at Ft. Rucker.  A group of seven visionary individuals, whose original investment totaled $35, has grown to a full-service financial institution with more than 109,000 members and more than $1.2 billion in assets.  In addition to the increased number of products and services, we’ve also expanded to 21 branches located in Mobile and Southeast Alabama and the Florida Panhandle.
