I am a United States Navy Flyer.
My countrymen built the best airplane in the world
and entrusted it to me. They trained me to fly it.
I will use it to the absolute limit of my power.
With my fellow pilots, air crews, and deck crews, my plane
and I will do anything necessary to carry out our tremendous responsibilities.
I will always remember we are part of an unbeatable combat team--the United States Navy.
When the going is fast and rough, I will not falter.
I will be uncompromising in every blow I strike. I will be humble in victory.
I am a United States Navy flyer. I have dedicated myself to my
country, with its many millions of all races, colors, and creeds.
They and their way of life are worthy of my greatest protective effort.
I ask the help of God in making that effort great enough.
