Supporting the troops from the air, the Army pilots show great courage and skill in battle and help maintain the safety of America. The ACU aviator sew on senior badge has the classic image of the Unites States shield in between two outstretched wings and represents the power and authority of the airborne Army units. Initially introduced during World War I to the US Air Service, this patch design was used to distinguish the pilots and to show their flight experience. After World War II and during the Cold War, the Army aviators continued in their air service and distinguished themselves from the newly created US Air Force by creating their modified Army Aviator Badge.
This Action Embroidery ACU aviator sew on senior badge has the distinguishing US shield surrounded by the outstretched wings with a five-pointed star at the top, distinguishing the Senior Army Aviators from the Basic Army Aviator.
