  •     Squadrons, to collaborate with the closest Air Force Association chapter, find and contact your closest AFA chapter at the AFA Chapter Locator and ask them to partner with you.

  • Squadrons, click on the Program FAQs!  Any other questions, just contact!


                       When collaborations begin, new opportunities for students and the teachers evolve:



  • Teacher Orientation Program (TOP) flights provide an opportunity for the teachers to see, first-hand, how science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) topics are integral in the aviation experience. 


  • CAP's STEM Kits are also great classroom enhancements! Flight simulators are especially beneficial when pilot members of CAP and the Air Force Association help with instruction!
  • The distinctive purple ACE shirts can be a part of the program!  See ACE shirt ordering information HERE.
