The Air Force Association is the voice for aerospace power and the Air Force family. We connect service members, and the total Air Force family, through professional development, unique programs, and support initiatives before, during, and beyond their time in uniform.

The AFA Newsletter is delivered to thousands of men and women of all ranks in the Air Force, and to industry partners, community members, and AFA financial supporters.


To carry out its educational mission, the Mitchell Institute:

  • Hosts defense seminars that focus on the potential for airpower to meet the nation’s security needs in the world today and tomorrow. 
  • Organizes small, expert-based discussions among the nation's more creative and well-respected airpower thinkers, some of whom are serving on active duty. 
  • Publishes special reports on important defense and aerospace issues, as well as papers from emerging aerospace thinkers.
