1000 Trap Club (Mezzanine)

Over the course of aviation history, relatively few have mastered the art of flying. Among those who have, only a fraction can call themselves 'Tailhookers,' aviators who have made an arrested landing aboard a ship—a trap. This distinction is a hallmark of those who wear Wings of Gold, among whom only a handful have accumulated a total of 1,000 carrier arrested landings and joined the Thousand Trap Club.
