Re: RMN Aerospace Wings- Updated (Admiralty Order 1709-01)


As of the publication of this Order, the following is effective:

One of the goals of The Royal Manticoran Navy (TRMN) is to promote Aerospace Education. To that end, this Admiralty Order deals primarily with those who are real world pilots or have some interest in becoming pilots. It also has a simulator component, but the simulator must be able to log your flight time.

An online account at the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) is required for some of the Aerospace wings below. These accounts are free. Membership in the AOPA is not required.

These various wings will all be available in Gold for Officers and Silver for Enlisted & Civilians. The Officers of the Civilian Uniformed Services, which includes, AstroControl Services, Royal Manticoran Merchant Marine, and Sphinxian Forestry Commission, also qualify for the Gold wings.

Additionally, these wings will be available in three tiers, Basic (Basic Badge), Senior (Basic Badge with a Star above it), and Master (Senior Badge with a Wreath around the Star).

For those members of TRMN who are actual certified pilots, upon verification of your pilots license and rating (Private, Instrument, Commercial), you will be eligible to acquire the RMN Aerospace Wings from the Bureau of Supply.

The Astro Control Log is valid *only* for flight times for the Navigator, Observer, & Simulator Wings. It is not valid for the Aerospace wings, as pilots should be able to provide either a scan of a hardcopy log book, or a digital log book.

Note: The issuance of TRMN Aerospace wings of any type does not qualify you as a pilot under the regulations of the FAA or any other national or international aeronautics agencies. Skill in observation, navigation, or simulated flight are not a replacement for a legal pilot's license and should not be treated as such.

RMN SOLO AEROSPACE WINGS: These wings will be issued for the completion of actual pilot qualifications as follows: Completion and sign off of Solo Flight during flight training. A copy of your logbook entry for this is required. This is for all Solo, including, Private, Sport and Recreational Pilot, Glider, or Ballooning.

This must be verified by a TRMN Astro Control Officer or by the First Lord of the Admiralty if no Astro Control Officer is in place. These wings will also be awarded for the completion of a Sport and Recreational Pilot Certification, Glider Certification, or Ballooning Certification, however, to advance to the next level, you must have a full Private Pilot Certificate.

  • RMN Senior Aerospace Wings – Completion of 75 hours of total flight time as a Private Pilot. This must be verified by a TRMN Astro Control Officer or by the First Lord of the Admiralty if no Astro Control Officer is in place.

Note: This course is currently being updated by the AOPA, as such the Wings requiring this course will be issued without that course being required. Once the updated course is released by the AOPA, you will have sixty (60) days to complete the course, or your wings will revert to the next lowest approved level.

Currently, all these wings are authorized for wear on official TRMN uniforms. They may be worn in place of the SWP, or, they may be worn in place of Hyper Command Stars, as the Hyper Command Stars do not supersede them as they are a different track .

Note: TRMN maintains a list of pilots with Aerospace wings for informational purposes only. While TRMN will provide a list of member pilots in an area it is the member's responsibility to verify with the FAA that the pilot's license is in good order and no actions have been taken against it. All license information is self-reported and verified against the FAA database, and it is the responsibility of member pilots to report any adverse action against their license.

Any questions on this Admiralty Order should be addressed to the Office of the First Lord of the Admiralty as the Authority for this topic.


In Honour of the Queen!
