Naval Avation masthead

US Naval aviation is the envy of every military in the world. Whether carrier-based or shore-based, a jet, plane, helicopter or trainer, America’s Navy has the most technologically advanced aircraft in the world. And a Navy air wing may also be the most versatile collection of crew and equipment in the sky.

Here you can pilot cutting-edge aircraft. Oversee the intricate communications, navigation and weapons systems they carry. Help ensure mission success – and the safety of the people involved.

A carrier air wing is a precision-tuned machine of 2,500+ people. When that team is rolling at peak capability, a flight deck crew can launch two planes at a time and land one every 37 seconds.
