Insignia of rank is the only logo or patch worn on the Navy Flight Suit that is not attached using hook-and-pile fasteners, commonly referred to by the trade name Velcro. Instead, Officers and Warrant Officers use either insignia sewn directly on the shoulders of the Flight Suit, or insignia embroidered onto a background that is then attached to the shoulders. Flight Suits are authorized for wear only by aircrew members and individuals who will be performing flight or flight-related duties during a given working day. The suits may be worn during commutes and while performing normal tasks at stops associated with commutes (gasoline stations, banks, daycare centers, etc.), but consumption of alcohol while wearing a Flight Suit off base is strictly prohibited.

Although the Navy eliminated the Warrant Officer 1 (WO1) grade in 1975, we continue to carry the Warrant Officer 1 embroidered Flight Suit rank insignia in response to a strong demand from veterans, uniform collectors, and other organizations with a need or desire for authentic U.S. Navy insignias and uniform components.
