Registration notes: This tartan celebrates all past, present and future personnel and achievements attached to the squadrons of the Royal Navy’s Fleet Air Arm. Encompassing important colours associated with the Fleet Air Arm crest: light blue, gold, white, red, and green. Navy blue signifies the Royal Navy and black represents continual respect for the fallen. Although the term Fleet Air Arm did not actually come into being until 1924, the Admiralty was investigating kites and balloons for spotting as early as 1903, the first Naval aviator completed his flying training in 1910 and the first launch from a Royal Navy battleship was achieved by January of 1912. From those early formative years of naval aviation to current operations their naval personnel and aircraft have played a leading role. Flying from ships deployed worldwide, the aircraft of the Fleet Air Arm provide the UK with influence over land and sea, and assist in the wide range of roles undertaken by the Royal Navy from disaster relief to landing Royal Marines onto a hostile shore.
