IN TRIBUTE FOR THOSE WHO FLY!
"High Flight: F-104" by AIRBOYD.TV

PREPARING YOUNG ADULTS (Ages 14-21) for a Career in Aviation... the U.S. Air Force, other Military Branches, & Acceptance into the Military Service Academies or College ROTC Programs!

The United States Air Force Explorers (USAFX) was activated 1 March 1999 at Sky Harbor International Airport, Phoenix, AZ. The command is located at the 161st Air Refueling Wing of the USAF Arizona Air National Guard providing Military Aircrew and Special Ops Training for young men and women ages 14-21. The unit is the first in CONUS to provide such specialized military training for the past 11 years. We provide the finest in youth military specialized training available today.

The command is organized using an USAF command level structure as a model with emphasis on Military Training and Leadership Development. Cadets fulfill staff billets as well as other unit duties to accomplish mission objectives. Staff officers and NCO’s assist them from both the military and civilian ranks. Cadets move on to achieve their goals attending various Military Service Acadmies such as the USAFA, USNA or USMA. Others progress on to University Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) Programs or may enlist in a service with Active Duty, Reserve or National Guard Units. Those electing to remain in the civilian sector attribute their success to their USAFX Education.

Whichever path a Cadet chooses the Education, Training and Accomplishments achieved with the USAFX will be one that can be rewarding for a future Military Officer or Enlisted as attributed to our Alumni who now serve in our Defense. They are the true leaders showing future USAFX cadets' that you will make Life-long friends seeking service among our Nation's Finest.
