Aerospace Education Excellence
Notice the “X” in AEX does not stand for Extra, but EXcellence. Every squadron and group is already doing what it
takes to earn this award, except one step – registering for the award! (it takes less than 5 minutes) Some of these can also fulfill other requirements, such as safety (weather discussion). There are many opportunities for AE subject matter – even those outside the CAP AEX books.
CAPR 52-16 (Effective 1-FEB-11) – Section 1-6b 2b:
Each unit with cadet members shall conduct at least one AEX activity per quarter.
***Continuing the Excellence – 6 MIWG units are already registered for 2015-16 School Year!***
