Aerospace Education

     The Civil Air Patrol promotes and supports aerospace education, both for its own members and the general public. Civil Air Patrol educational programs help prepare American citizens to meet the challenges of a sophisticated aerospace society and understand its related issues.

     The Civil Air Patrol offers national standards-based educational products, including a secondary textbook, Aerospace: The Journey of Flight, and the middle-school-level Aerospace Dimensions. Teachers can get free classroom materials and lesson plans from Civil Air Patrol by joining Civil Air Patrol’s Aerospace Education Membership program.

     At Civil Air Patrol, the volunteer auxilliary of the United States Air Force, we're helping develop tomorrow's aerospace workforce.
