The Chief Warrant Officer 2 Flight Suit rank insignia may be sewn directly onto the shoulders of the garment or embroidered onto a background that is sewn onto the suit. Flight Suits are worn by aircrew members and other personnel engaged in flight or flight-related duties during that working day, but wear authorization is extended to commute times (including normal stops for necessary business such as at banks, daycares, gas stations, etc.), while flying on military transport aircraft, and at official business meetings away from a home station when either the wearing of the suit appropriate for transportation or the level of meeting does not require a Service uniform.

For a brief period near the start of the 21st century, it seemed as if the demand for embroidered CWO 2 rank insignia for flight suits might increase substantially. In 2006, the Navy announced its Flying Chief Warrant Officer Program in an effort to ensure an adequate number of pilots and aircrew personnel without drastically increasing the number Commissioned officers who would subsequently be vying for command squadrons, wings, etc. But the initiative never seemed to gain much traction, with only 20 Sailors selected in the program’s first two years; in the final year selections were made, only three were given the nod to enter the program.
