Helicopter Training Squadron Eighteen
The squadron was created in 1972 after splitting HT-8. HT-18 became the new advanced helicopter training unit flying mainly Hueys TH-1L but both units used borrowed Army UH-1D and Marines UH-1E for many years as well.

From 1985, and with TH-57B/C Sea Ranger, HT-8 and HT-18 became mirror image squadrons both providing basic and advanced training.
