"The Gateway to Ft Rucker"
Daleville may be a city with high-tech interests, but it is still a place where Southern hospitality prevails and neighbors help neighbors.
Known as “The Gateway to Fort Rucker”, Daleville is proud to be the closest neighbor of the U.S. Army Aviation Center of Excellence, where more than 2,000 of the nation’s best and brightest train to fly helicopters such as the UH-60 Blackhawk and the mighty AH-64D Apache Longbow. Daleville is home to the largest assemblage of aircraft training simulators anywhere in the world, and a host of defense contractors headquarter here in support of Fort Rucker’s vital and complex mission of training the world’s greatest helicopter pilots.
While many of those operations require highly technical skills and equipment, Daleville maintains its small-town atmosphere, but also boasts of a greatly diversified business community and population, enriched by people native to the area as well as those from other parts of the country and world who’ve chosen the quiet Dale County town as their temporary or permanent home. Daleville offers many facets of quality living with modern subdivisions and townhome complexes as well as short-term accommodations for visitors and “tour-of-duty” personnel associated with Fort Rucker.
Often referred to as the “The City That Feeds Fort Rucker", Daleville has a wide array of restaurants and offers a variety of products and services as well as education, healthcare and recreational opportunities. Located nearby two retail hubs, Enterprise and Dothan, less than four hours from the bustling atmosphere of Atlanta and less than two hours from the Gulf Coast beaches, Daleville is an appealing mix of small-town charm and contemporary benefits and cutting-edge excitement.
