Naval Aviation News is the U.S. Navy’s oldest periodical, tracing its origin back to the Chief of Naval Operations’ Weekly Bulletins in 1917. Naval Aviation News is published quarterly under the auspices of the Chief of Naval Operations’ Director, Air Warfare (N98) by Naval Air Systems Command.

The magazine reflects the state of the Naval Aviation Enterprise and Naval Aviation community, and once published becomes part of the historical record. Articles and photographs focus on the Naval Aviation mission by highlighting accomplishments, goals and process improvements across the Naval Aviation Enterprise with a focus on readiness. The content appeals to a broad audience, including the Department of the Navy, the fleet, Navy systems commands, Marine Corps Aviation, the general public and members of Congress.
