Aerospace Wings

From TRMN
Jump to: navigation, search

The intent behind the Aerospace Wings is to foster and encourage in interest in flight among the members of TRMN. The primary aim is to develop an interest in real-world flight and piloting, but for those who have the interest but otherwise lack the ability, there are grades for simulation and courses. It is CRUCIAL to understand that award of these wings do NOT in any way imply real-world qualifications under FAA or other national flight regulatory bodies.

Historical

When manned flight first became militarily significant (c. WWI), the first aerial units were typically derived from Army formations, for example, the Royal Flying Corps[1], or the US Army Air Service[2]. In order to distinguish flying officers from others, insignia in the form of wings were created. From that time, aviation insignia have come to symbolize the arduous training pilots and aircrew undergo[3].

TRMN

With one exception, each grade and class of Aerospace wings is available in gold for officers and silver for enlisted. The designs of each grade are otherwise identical.
