National CAP Aerospace Education news:

Note to CAP Aerospace Education Officers:

In 2018, National AE has updated all AE pamphlets and regulations. Please refer to the new publications:

    CAPR 50-1 and CAPP 50-1 revised the dates of the Aerospace Education reports' deadlines triggering some discrepancy with the eServices requirements. This will be corrected soon, but until then, we are following the eServices deadlines:

    *2019 Aerospace Education Activity Reports (2019 AE AR) should be completed by 30 October 2019

    *2020 Aerospace Education Plans of Action (2020 AE POA) should be completed by 30 November 2019

    If you made a mistake, email me as soon as possible. Above and Beyond section should list the AE activities your squadron has done during the year, also including in squadron activities as well as outreach, community events, school visits... 

    Record keeping for AEX activities are 1 October to 30 September. AEX award can be obtained once 6 AEX lessons and a 2 hour activity are completed and reported. Please file your lessons and activities as soon as possible!

    Don't forget to file your STEM kit evaluations so that you can place a new request.
