The Northeast Texas, Chapter 416 of the Air Force Association (AFA) is a non‐profit, independent, professional military and aerospace education association that promotes public understanding of aerospace power and the pivotal role it plays in the security of the nation. We educate the public about national defense, how to support the United States Air Force, the Air Force family, and Aerospace Education. Our chapter represents Northeast Texas from Rockwall, East to Arkansas, North to Oklahoma and south to Palestine.
We are the recipients of numerous National and State awards including the prestigious AFA Texas Chapter of the Year and AFA National Community Partner Gold Award for excellence in partnering with our communities to promote Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education. We do this through support of robotics, CyberPatriot, and numerous other educational programs as well as offer student scholarships for programs as well as offer an annual essay contest for high school seniors. We also aid in guiding teachers, Civil Air Patrol, and others to grants and scholarships offered by AFA National.
The chapter works hard to encourage and support STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) activities in the local area. We have supported robotics, early college training classes, CyberPatriot, solar car programs, and much more.
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.
