Article 6803 of U.S. Navy Uniform Regulations requires that the Rear Admiral (lower half) rank insignia for Flight Suits be either embroidered on cloth sew-on grade insignia with the same dimensions as the insignia of grade worn on the All-Weather Coat. The edge of the insignia is placed about 5/8-inch from the shoulder seam, centered between the front and rear of the suit’s shoulders. In the case of General Officers, stars are to be worn with a single ray pointing toward the collar.

The wear of Flight Suits is restricted to aircrew members and other personnel who are to be engaged in flight or flight-related duties on a working day, a stipulation that does not encompass ground support or non-aircrew support or maintenance personnel. However, today’s numerous restrictions on the wear of Flight Suits are not nearly as onerous as they were just two decades ago. In 1998, for instance, the only time a Flight Suit could be worn outside of a military facility was when traveling (in a government vehicle) between such facilities or while traveling directly from or to home.
