Any rating onboard an aircraft carrier which involves an individual whose job is directly associated with the aircraft. They usually stand in lines that they have no idea what it is for, correct nukes for their unshined boots and uncreased uniforms, and have nothing better to do inport than go home while the rest of the ship works.

Look at the airdales running around aimlessly on the flight deck.
That stupid airdale.
