Russian insignia relating to aviation

I got this pin in St. Petersburg, Russia, May 19, 2015 while touring the city. It is typical of minor Russian military insignia of which I have several examples. The back does not have catch as such but two wires which penetrate the item on which it is worn, then they are bent flat to hold the item in place. This doesn’t work at all if you have to wear it on a uniform that has to be cleaned.
