Why We Recognize Achievement

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. NAA’s mission is to identify and recognize those who have contributed to the art, sport, and science of aviation and space flight to the United States.

We appreciate that people and groups like receiving recognition for their hard work and we believe they deserve it. When achievement is rewarded, several things happen.

  • Entities that earned it are provided with a vital boost to continue in their excellence.
  • Winners gain a sense of fulfillment.
  • Public recognition inspires others…today’s success drives future success.

Motivation is what pushes people. Giving recognition for achievement creates a positive atmosphere and helps keep the entire aerospace industry moving forward.

The NAA creates positive opportunities to reward achievement and propel continued excellence in every sector of aviation.
