Three overlapping bars featured in the Unit Crest (Distinctive Unit Insignia) of the 18th Aviation Brigade create the appearance of an overhead view of runways seen at an airfield.

The combat nature of the brigade’s mission is represented by an arrow (actually described as a "quarrel," or crossbow bolt, in The Institute of Heraldry description) in the center of the crest, a design also used in the unit’s CSIB. Two lightning flashes represent the unit’s communication responsibilities involved in takeoff, landings, runway control, and air-traffic management.
