Our Awards

VAAS will recognise the committment of it's pilot's in several ways. Firstly a rank structure will be in place whereby promotion will be gained as flying hours are accumulated, ensuring that participation in VAAS activities is rewarded at regular intervals. The rank structure is novel to VAAS and bears no resemblance to any real life organisations.

Time served as a VAAS pilot will be rewarded with a yearly badge awarded to recognise each completed year of service irregardless of rank.

Other specialist awards will be given as and when pilots qualify for them, for example Air Ambulance Base Commander and Instructor pilot badges will be issued as well as others.

I understand that just flying as a valued member of VAAS will be enough for most pilots, but it is important that rewards are earned and given to those that remain committed and continue to support the Charity Scenery Project throughout their VAAS career. Thank-you from the VAAS Commander for your service.
