The inspiration behind the 'Wings' badge over the front door of the HQ AAC building came from a similar design on the Airfield Camp Officers' Mess, Netheravon - a former Royal Flying Corps station. The AAC 'Wings' were designed and carved by Colonel David Turner, Headquarters Director Army Aviation Chief-of-Staff and put in place during 2008. The Airfield Camp 'Wings' date from 1914.
