All About Arnold Air Society
Arnold Air Society is a professional, honorary, service organization advocating the support of aerospace power. The Thunderbird Squadron is a long-time part of Oklahoma State University's Detachment 670, having been established in 1950. We serve to embody the Air Force Core Values: Integrity First, Service Before Self, and Excellence in All We Do. One of the ways we do this, is by our efforts in serving the community. Whether through Tiny Paws, Lasagna Love, or cleaning up our local adopted highway, we love to help volunteer around the city of Stillwater. In addition to serving, other ways we carry on the traditions and honor of the Thunderbird Squadron is by attending the National Conclave (NATCON).

The National Conclave, NATCON, is the Arnold Air Society and Silver Wings national conference in which over 1,000 Air Force ROTC and Academy cadets and civilian college students from over 120 universities convene to share ideas on Air Force innovation and to grow our leadership. NATCON hosts many professional and educational seminars, military keynote speakers, and unique peer networking opportunities that go unparalleled to even those within the ROTC curriculum.
The Oklahoma State's Thunderbird Squadron of Arnold Air Society also held leadership on the Regional level, representing AAS Region IX for all of Arkansas, Texas, Louisiana, and Oklahoma. As the past Region IX Staff, our attendance holds great importance this year, and this is where you help, and your donation has the most notable difference. Every amount donated contributes to the expenses related to airfare, student registration, hotel, and other miscellaneous travel costs.
