Each year NHA sponsors several national awards with the winners being chosen from a field of regional award winners. In addition to the Performance Awards, there are also awards which give recognition to individuals who have made significant contributions to the rotary wing community and the goals of the Naval Helicopter Association. The NHA national and regional awards are an important means to recognize outstanding performance within rotary wing aviation.
