All members will need a current CAP ID Card. If they have not received and/or lost theirs, a temporary ID can be printed in E-Services.

Sq AE Activity Report and POA's Due 15 Oct
IAW CAPR 280-2 (C1) Para 6 a: Each squadron will develop an annual AE Plan of Action (AEPOA) and forward it to their next higher headquarters for approval not later than 15 October. See paragraph 6c for submission deadlines and approval dates. After command approval, the wings will forward the consolidated AEPOA to the region. Consult CAPP 15, Aerospace Education Officers' Handbook, for guidance on how to develop an AEPOA.
IAW CAPR 280-2 (C1) Para 7 a: Each squadron will complete an annual AE Activity Report by 15 October, which will contain all of the information pertaining to aerospace activities that occurred during the past fiscal year. It is recommended that the information be documented quarterly and compiled annually. Instructions on how to complete the AE activity report are explained in CAPP 15 Aerospace Education Officers' Handbook.
Now the Aerospace Education Activity Report can now be found within the AE Squadron POA application in eServices. This fiscal year's POA has also been redone; so if you your unit has completed a POA for FY 2017 using the form prior to today's update, it will need to be resubmitted. Sorry for the inconvenience. Instructions have been updated for all sections as well. Approvals for the activity report will show for commanders in the approval widget on the eServices home page as well as in Commander's Corner. Thank you for your patience.
2016 AE Conference

Please see the attached flyer for details on the 2016 Missouri Wing Aerospace Education Conference, scheduled for 8 October 2016 at the Aerospace Science and Technology Center (ASTC) in Joplin, MO.

DIRECTIONS: The Joplin airport is located on the far north side of the city - between Webb city and the town of airport drive off highway 171. Go to the general aviation entrance off highway 171 to the old airport terminal.
IF COMING FROM THE NORTH ON HIGHWAY 49: On the north side of Carthage, highway 49 wraps around to the west side and then continues south towards I-44. I would recommend taking the 49/96/171 exit to the right towards Carterville, Webb City and Joplin. (This exit is also W. Central Ave in city names and is right near the center of Carthage in north/south terms.) Go right (west) on this road a couple miles and you will come to the Webb City exit after passing the Hwy HH/Carterville turn off. Stay in the right lane as the Webb City exit will just curve off to the right and then curve off to the right again while the left hand lane splits off to the left to Joplin. Go all the way through Webb City on 49/171 (also Macarthur Dr.) to the airport. You'll first come to a round-about then three or four lights. At the last light you'll see the south end of the airport. Continue straight for a little bit and turn right into the general aviation entrance. That road will take you straight to the old terminal (now Alpha Air FBO). Enter main center doors.
IF YOU ARE COMING FROM EAST OR WEST ON I-44: Take 249 north (exit 11) towards Webb city and Carthage - about a five minute drive. (249 is on the east side of Joplin.) You will pass over several roads, the last will be Zora. Yellow signs will alert you to be in the left hand lane to exit towards Webb city, then merge into 171 westbound. You will come to a round-about then three (or four) lights. The last light will place you on the south side of the airport (easily seen.) Continue west about a minute drive or so, and be prepared to turn right (north) into the general aviation entrance. That road will take you straight to the old terminal (now Alpha Air FBO). Enter main center doors.
UNIFORMS: Any authorized uniform according to CAPM 39-1
ACCOMMODATIONS: Overnight accommodations are not available. If you plan to stay overnight Friday, contact major Trumbly for assistance. Suggest hotels in the I-44/Rangeline Road Area (EXIT 8.) Care and handling of cadets is the responsibility of the senior members bringing them.
[To get to the airport from here you can go straight north on range line road to Webb city (171) and go west to the airport. However, to save yourself traffic headaches, i recommend taking i-44 east to 249 (exit 11) exiting to the right and loop over i-44 northbound to Webb city/Carthage. This is a bit longer but is much faster and easier than range line road!]
