Awards & Trophies

For almost the entire history of powered flight, NAA has been the caretaker of many of the nation’s and the world’s most prestigious aviation awards including the Robert J. Collier Trophy, the Wright Brothers Memorial Trophy, and the Mackay Trophy.

Air Sports

Part of NAA’s mission is to encourage the sport of aviation, and it does so through its relationship with our many Air Sport Organizations representing aerobatics, aeromodelling, ballooning, gliding, hang gliding and paragliding, indoor skydiving, powered paragliding and paramotor, and parachuting.

Aviation and Space Records

NAA is the official record keeper of aviation and space records in the United States and is the U.S. representative of the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale (FAI).  Since 1905, NAA has been encouraging pilots to fly higher, faster, and farther than their predecessors.
