What is AAS?
  • Arnold Air Society is a professional, honorary, service organization advocating the support of aerospace power. 
  • AAS is formally affiliated with AFROTC and the Air Force Association. 
  • AAS is an extracurricular organization available to Air Force ROTC and Academy cadets.
  • Arnold Air Society was first proposed as an idea for an extra-curricular organization by AFROTC cadets at the University of Cincinnati in the summer of 1947.
  • After having their idea approved by active members of the Air Force, the cadets wrote a constitution for their new, honorary society.
  • They called it the “Arnold Society of Air Cadets” in honor of General Henry “Hap” Arnold, the first and only 5-Star General of the Air Force.

History continued
  • Since it started, Arnold Air Society grew quickly. It focused on high morals, physical fitness, and a positive attitude toward the Society and its goals.
  • Since it is the mission of ROTC and the Air Force Academy to produce leaders, AAS enhances that mission by building these values into cadets early on, and ensuring that they maintain these standards.
  • Arnold Air Society was officially recognized by the Air Force in April of 1948. It was then the goal of the Society to recruit and build more Squadrons to make the Society bigger.
