Origin/meaning

The Squadron’s emblem is decorated with the Achilles’ shield, the Zeus eagle which is a strength and superiority symbol and represents the air rescue operations, and the snake which as a revival symbol refers to first aid support. The «Α» comes from the name «Achilles» and is the call-sign in peacetime, while the thunder represents the telecommunication and the reaction rate.
