This page contains information on the Aviation Bonus (AvB) program. AvB is also known as the aviation bonus - not to be confused with Aviation Incentive Pay, commonly referred to as "flight pay". (See links on the left side of the screen for more information on AvIP.)
Below are links to program information for current and historical Navy (active component) AvB programs. Currently there are two AvB programs in the active component: the Aviation Department Head Retention Bonus (ADHRB) and the Aviation Command Retention Bonus (ACRB).
