What is AEX?


Civil Air Patrol offers a very popular FREE program to its members that involves doing hands-on aviation and space-related activities with students. By checking “Yes” for the "Aerospace Education Excellence" (AEX) Program, this will automatically register you for the program. If you complete the required six activities and one 2-hour field experience (such as an aerospace day, field trip or launching airplanes, rockets, or hot air balloons), you will be sent a beautiful 11x14 wood plaque and vibrant certificates for all participants. If you are unable to complete all requirements, we hope you will utilize some of the interesting activities with youth, as you can. For more information visit the AEX link here.
