Instituted in 1922 as an award to those who have performed meritious services towards aviation and/or the association. The medal is oval in shape.
Material: silver. Diameter: 38x31mm. Obverse: a winged female figure flying among clouds over the sea. Reverse: wreath of laurel topped by a royal crown and the legend 'Koninklijke Nederlandsche Vereeniging voor luchtvaart". Below that a text can be engraved to indicate the recipient. Interesting feature is the way the medal is attached to the ribbon: like Commonwealth medals the suspension is a bar.
