Tailhook The Grand Club

Welcome to

The Grand Club

Honoring the Naval Aviators with 1,000 or more carrier arrested landings

This page is dedicated to those Naval Aviators with 1,000 or more carrier arrested landings. These aviators spent many months at sea, guarding the world sea lanes, fighting for, defending, and winning our freedoms. They also spent many hours working the flight schedule in their favor.

Recently Achieved 1,000?

If your name is not on the list, fill out the form below. If you do not have a Grand Club shirt and you are attending this year's Tailhook Reunion, please notify us and we will present a shirt to you at the Jig Dog Ramage Awards Luncheon. 

Thanks! Your message has been sent and we will be in touch shortly.
