List of United States Navy aircraft wings

This is a list of United States Navy aircraft wings. It covers both Carrier Air Wings and land-based wings. Since groups in the United States Navy essentially came to be redefined as effectively the same as wings, it also covers groups.

Carrier Air Wings

Notes:

1. CVW-10 was originally assigned the "AK" fin flash whilst serving with the Atlantic Fleet until the air wing's disestablishment in the early 1970's. CVW-10 later borrowed the defunct CVW-19's fin flash when it was temporarily reactivated to serve in the Pacific Fleet during the mid-to-late 1980's.
2. CVW-13 was assigned CVW-10's original "AK" fin flash during the 1980's.
