Helicopter Training Squadron Eight
HT-8 was formed at NAS Ellyson Field, Pensacola Florida, as Helicopter Training Unit one (HTU-1) on 1950.

In 1960 HTU-1 became the eighth squadron in the Naval Air Basic Training Command and renamed to its current name

In 1972 the squadron moved to NAS South Whiting Field and was splitted: HT-8 keeping basic training ( flying TH-57A Sea Ranger ) whilst HT-18 becaming the new advanced helicopter training squadron ( flying Hueys TH-1L ) . Marines UH-1E & TH-1E were also used.

From 1985 the TH-57B/C models replaced the TH-57A and HT-8 with HT-18 became mirror image squadrons both providing basic and advanced training
