Welcome to the only website in the world dedicated 100% to preserving Flying Training and Class Patch history      


This web site is by no means a complete gathering of "all" the Flying training patches there ever were. The patches pictured are from my "own collection" and begin at 1960. I started collecting patches almost 40 years ago and chose to specialize in Pilot Training/Flying Training Units, class patches and IFT (Initial Flight Training) because there was and still is, no official resource for USAF Flying Training patches. To date, there are no complete gatherings of this type in any of the US Air Force museums.  This site features 212 pages and over 13,000 patch pictures, so prepare for a long stay and many visits. Each base has a sub category and a sub-sub category...etc. Just keep clicking and enjoy yourself.

NOTE:  After great trepidation, I have decided to stop the collection with 2019 classes.  I think 60 years of representation is more than enough and I have so many patches in that time frame to still get, I could use another 60 years which I do not have.

If you do not see your patch pictured, please consider selling the patch to the site, or if you would like, donate it to the site.  If you see a patch out of place or mis-identified, please email me and let me know.  Please don't let this history die!!


Don't forget the "UNIDENTIFIED" tab!!
