Miniature Wings Lapel Pins

Nov 20, 2019


Brett Dowsing (WA Division) has produced Pilot’s Wings Lapel Pins that are on sale for $15.00 each (includes postage within Australia).   You can order your set(s) using the Form below, and click on the ‘Submit’ button when done.  You will then be contacted with payment details. 

If you wish you can also Sponsor a Graduate Navy Pilot/Observer for a Pin, which will be presented to him/her in the week of their ‘Wings’ graduation by the Senior Naval Officer RAAF Pearce.   Sponsoring a graduate is a great way to show support for a young aviator at the start of their flying career, and give them a sense of who the Fleet Air Arm Association is and our enduring link to the modern FAA.   

All you have to do to Sponsor a graduate is click on the YES button towards the end of the form below,  and fill out the additional details.  Don’t forget that being a sponsor involves buying a pin (or more than one, if you wish) in addition to the number you have indicated at the start of the Form. You don’t have to engage with the Graduate, but a few words of encouragement for them would be appreciated. 

If you have any questions or concerns please use the “Contact Us” form at the foot of this page.
