Air Force ROTC Student Organizations

aao logoAztec Aviation Organization (AAO) is Detachment 075’s primary source for getting AFROTC cadets familiar with aviation. AAO not only provides educational resources such as simulator training, but also flight experience. On a regular basis cadets are provided with opportunities to fly backseat in T-34 Mentor aircraft, ride along in C-17 and KC-135 aircraft, tour local aerospace development and production plants, and much more.  These flights take place locally in San Diego, and commonly at March Air Reserve Base, and often include flying in formation or performing maneuvers. AAO also provides cadets with simulator training taught by licensed instructors. For more information on when flights and Aztec Aviation Organization events take place, see the Detachment calendar.

cco logoThe Cadet Cyber Organization is an organization that aims to familiarize AFROTC cadets with cyber security methods and opportunities with the goal of increasing interest in the 17X Cyber Operations career field in the US Air Force. We present topics around cyber security and have labs correlating with the presented topic where members can interact and practice. Our lectures are made for cadets of any knowledge level and work up from the basics of cyber to more complex topics and hack the box like scenarios. Additionally, cadets interested in cyber related PDTs can ask more about the process as well as the experience at the PDT in which they may be interested.
