Enterprise leadership is organized into three principal membership groupings, each with its defined roles and purposes:
- Air Board Executive Committee: Members whose leadership assignment is within Naval Aviation and whose decision-making authority guides the course of core aspects of Naval Aviation.
- Air Board: Members whose organizational billet has a strong interdependent relationship with the Enterprise and Naval Aviation which necessitates an acknowledged need to be informed to advance the efforts of both Naval Aviation and the Air Board member's parent command.
- Extended Air Board: Members who are an important partner within Naval Aviation, provider and/or staff levels with shared interests in the Enterprise, but limited direct collaboration.
Governance is exercised by the Air Board in the broad context, and day-to-day by the Air Board Executive Committee as a subset of the Air Board. The Extended Air Board is the largest leadership group. The Enterprise is further subdivided into three major cross-functional teams and one integrated team.

Cross-Functional Teams (CFTs)
To optimize readiness, each element which comprises that readiness - "people, stuff and money" - must be managed. Cross-functional teams are functionally focused to properly manage these elements. A cross-functional team is comprised of members from different stakeholder organizations, providing a range of functional expertise working toward common goals. The NAE's three cross-functional teams are supported by the Integrated Resource Mangement Team (click on each name for more information):
