Founded in 1962, MCAA's awards program is now the largest aviation-based award program in the country and at the core of the MCAA mission. Our 29 awards span the spectrum of Marine aviation and recognize Marines of all ranks who are nominated by their superiors and vetted through Headquarters Marine Corps. Each MCAA award is named in honor of a Marine who made noteworthy contributions in their field. Two additional prestigious awards are the Commandant’s Aviation Award and the Silver Hawk Award. 


We are proud to be a part of Marine Corps aviation history in the making as our young warriors forge a path of success for our nation, and humbled by their accomplishments and humility.
