|About||The American Fighter Aces Association recognizes the nearly 1450 combat Aces that have served the United States of America since World War I|
The American Fighter Aces Association (AFAA) was founded in 1960 to recognize the nearly 1450 combat pilots that received a special distinction of becoming an ace by destroying 5 or more hostile aircraft in air to air combat. This includes aces in both World Wars, Korea and Vietnam.
The AFAA's objectives and purposes are: To preserve and promote the distinguished heritage of the American combat fighter Ace for future generations of military aviators and historians, and to promote a more general understanding of the essential role of fighter aircraft in the defense of our country. To preserve the spirit of loyalty, fellowship and responsibility that motivates Fighter Aces. To support the understanding of and demand for sound, progressive aerospace weapons systems which will guarantee the security and peace of the United States. To encourage and stimulate young men and women of special skills to enter the aerospace field. To sponsor educational programs designed to increase and broaden public knowledge of aerospace technology.
