The Enlisted Aviation Warfare Specialist Badge is a military badge of the United States Navy which was created in March 1980 . The badge recognizes those members of the Navy's enlisted force who have acquired the specific professional skills, knowledge, and military experience that result in qualification for service in the aviation activities of the Navy. This includes most personnel who are trained flight deck personnel onboard aircraft carriers , or maintenance personnel at an Aircraft Intermediate Maintenance Detachment or Department or aircraft squadron .
The basic prerequisite for the Enlisted Aviation Warfare Specialist Badge is that a service member be assigned in a sea-duty status to a deployable naval aviation unit or aviation capable ship. Most service members earning this badge hold an enlisted rating designated in aviation, or a support rating; in the 21st century Navy the ratings that are eligible include:
The non-designated striker rates of Airman , Airman Apprentice, and Airman Recruit are also eligible to receive the Enlisted Aviation Warfare Specialist Badge. However, due to the time involved in the qualification procedure, most service members obtain at least a Petty Officer Third Class rating before earning the Enlisted Aviation Warfare Specialist Badge. Sailors outside the aviation community are eligible to attain EAWS designation; however they must first complete the warfare specialist qualification for their community.
The qualification process to obtain the Enlisted Aviation Warfare Specialist Badge begins with the Enlisted Aviation Personal Qualification Standards, also known as PQS. There are two PQS for the Enlisted Aviation Warfare Specialist Badge. The first is the Common Core which consists of concepts, policies, and tasks that are common throughout Naval aviation and provide a foundation for the sailor's knowledge. The second is a platform-specific PQS which consists of several training tasks and other practical experience on-the-job exercises relevant to the particular aviation community the sailor is currently serving in, for example an F/A-18 squadron or a Nimitz -class aircraft carrier . The entire Enlisted Aviation PQS normally takes approximately three to five years to complete from the point of entering the enlisted aviation community though it can be completed much earlier with much dedication and effort.
Those completing the Enlisted Aviation PQS must then pass a written examination and a review board conducted by senior enlisted aviation personnel, normally the rank of Chief Petty Officer or above. Upon passing both the examination and the oral board, the Enlisted Aviation Warfare Specialist Badge may be presented. The sailor is then authorized to add the Enlisted Aviation Warfare Specialist designator (AW) after his or her rate.
Upon transfer to the sailor's next aviation command, he or she is required to complete an abbreviated re-qualification process to familiarize the sailor with the differences between various aviation platforms. This process must be completed within 12 months of reporting aboard or the sailor loses the right to wear the EAWS badge.
