Congratulations! You’ve completed your flight hours and are ready to upgrade your Air Battle Manager Badge to an Air Battle Management AF 160u ABU Senior Badge. The added star above the shield will let others know you are an Air Force officer with plenty of experience and training. Action Embroidery, the company that manufactures this patch, has been the largest producer of Embroidered Insignia for the United States Armed forces since 1943. These patches are made in the USA and meet all necessary military specifications. That means you can trust this item to abide by standard Air Force uniform regulations.
Air Battle Managers are the ones making split second decisions during air combat. They rely on classroom knowledge and field experience to guide their use of aircraft, weapons and surveillance. The success of the mission depends on these officers’ situational awareness and their ability to create and execute battle strategies. With such an important position, you’re probably proud to ascend from the basic to senior level. You are no longer a new pilot with fresh wings. You’ve been tested and passed with flying colors – pun intended.
You’ve made rank so now it’s time to show off a little bit. Don’t worry; you’ve earned it after thousands of dedicated flight hours. Get your badge today!
