VT-7 Graduates

Training Squadron Seven

A NAVAL AVIATOR'S CREED

I am a United States Naval Aviator.

My countrymen built the best airplane in the world and entrusted it to me. They trained me to fly it. I will use it to the absolute limit of my power.

With my fellow pilots, aircrews, and deck crews, my plane and I will do anything necessary to carry out our tremendous responsibilities. I will always remember we are part of an unbeatable combat team the United States Navy.

When the going is fast and rough, I will not falter. I will be uncompromising in every blow I strike. I will be humble in victory.

I am a United States Navy flyer. I have dedicated myself to my country, with its many millions of all races, colors, and creeds. They and their way of life are worthy of my greatest protective effort.

I ask the help of God in making that effort great enough.

Naval Aviator Designation Ceremony

"WINGING"
The Naval Aviator Designation and Winging Ceremony is not prescribed specifically by United States Navy Regulations but it is an honored product of the rich heritage of naval tradition. It marks the culmination of nearly two years of specialized training which prepares Navy and Marine Corps officers for the rigorous demands of aerial combat and carrier operations; earning them the title of "Naval Aviator" and the right to wear the coveted "Wings of Gold."
