AFJROTC INSTRUCTORS:



Major McCartney: also known as the Senior Aerospace Science Instructor (SASI). Cadets will
address him as “Sir” or “Major.” Major McCartney is a retired Air Force officer and has the
responsibility for managing the entire AFJROTC program here at Inola. He will be providing you
the Aerospace Science I through IV and Leadership Education I through IV curriculum on
Mondays, and Thursdays. The wellness portion of the curriculum, which involves various
exercises and a one-mile run, will be taught to you by both instructors on Fridays, or a day
determined by the SASI.



Master Sergeant Savage: also known as the Leadership Education Instructor (LEI). Cadets will
address him as “Sergeant” or Master Sergeant. Master Sergeant Savage is a retired Air Force
enlisted person. To develop a better understanding of military officer and enlisted active duty
titles, cadets will not refer to Master Sergeant Savage as “Sir.” Master Sergeant Savage will be
providing you the Aerospace Science I through IV and Leadership Education I through IV
curriculum on Mondays, and Thursdays. The wellness portion of the curriculum, which involves
various exercises and a one-mile run, will be taught to you by both instructors on Fridays or a day
determined by the ASI.

      AFJROTC is a 3- or 4-year program offered to high school students, grades 9-12. The
       curriculum includes Aerospace Science (AS), Leadership Education (LE) and Wellness. All
       Inola High School students will be awarded a Practical Arts/Elective credit towards
       graduation for successful completion of the AFJROTC program per the Air Force/School
       Agreement.


      Each class period during the academic day will identified as follows:

       1st hour – ALPHA FLIGHT ( Unassigned)
       2nd hour – BRAVO FLIGHT
       3rd hour – CHARLIE FLIGHT
       4th hour – DELTA FLIGHT
       5th hour – ECHO FLIGHT
       6th hour - FOX FLIGHT
       7th hour - GULF FLIGHT
Each academic course must consist of an AS component, an LE component and a Wellness
component. Curriculum usually consists of a textbook and student workbook and cadets are
required to place their name and Flight (class period) on the front cover of their student
workbooks. Do not write in your textbooks. Textbooks may be signed out for use at home.


         o Aerospace Science (AS) acquaints students with the elements of aerospace and the
           aerospace environment. It introduces them to the principles of space flight,
           principles of aircraft flight and navigation, the history of aviation, development of
           air power, contemporary aviation, human requirements of flight, the space
           environment, space programs, space technology, rocketry, propulsion, the aerospace
           industry, the science of flight, astronomy, geography, policy and organization,
           survival and the study of some cultures across the world.

           develops leadership skills and acquaints students with the practical application of
           life skills. The LE curriculum emphasizes discipline, responsibility, leadership,
           followership, citizenship, customs and courtesies, cadet corps activities, study habits,
           time management, communication skills, and drill and ceremonies.


         o Wellness and Physical Training (PT) provides a standardized, facility variations
           minded curriculum offering substantial individual health improvements. The
           objective is to motivate cadets to lead healthy, active lifestyles. PT/Wellness provides
           leadership opportunities, builds esprit de corps, and increases cadet confidence.
                PT Will be every Friday and there will be stretching as well as 5 minutes of
                  limited exercise at the start of each day.


         o Financial Literacy
                   Students shall fulfill the requirements for a Personal
                   Financial Literacy in order to graduate from a public high school with a standard

                                    Aerospace Science Curriculum
The aerospace science curriculum consists of four course levels, each covering an entire academic year.
The levels are AS-I, AS-II, AS-III, and AS-IV. These classes may be offered in a different sequence
depending on the time in the four-year cycle you enter JROTC. Additionally, specialized classes may be
offered based on student interest and participation.

Leadership Education This is the foundation of the course of instruction and consists of basic drill,
military customs and courtesies, character education, and leadership and management skills. These
courses are designed to prepare students for advanced leadership and are required for a cadet to hold a
leadership position in the corps. The courses are designated Leadership Education (LE) I, II, III and IV.
The specific content of each of these is contained in the Aerospace Science course descriptions below.

 Aerospace Science I This is a history course that acquaints the student with historical development of
flight and the military role in history. Over half of the classroom hours are spent reviewing the
development of flight from ancient legends to the space shuttle. Also, the role of the military throughout
the history of the United States is identified. The second half of the course describes the makeup of the
aerospace community and the United States Air Force. Many of the sixty hours of leadership studies
related directly to the academic subject matter. Additionally, wear of the uniform, Air Force customs
and courtesies, and basic drill skill is introduced.

Aerospace Science II This science course is designed to introduce the student with the aerospace
environment, the principles of flight and navigation, and human limitation of flight. The course begins
with a discussion of the atmosphere and weather. The study is expanded to include the planets and
space beyond our solar system. After developing an understanding of the environment, how that
environment effects flight is introduced. Discussions include the forces of lift, drag, thrust, and weight.
Students also learn basic navigation, including map reading, course plotting, and effects of wind. The
Human Requirements of flight area is a survey course on human physiology. Discussed here is the
human circulatory system, the effects of acceleration and desecration, protective equipment, and the
space environment. Leadership hours stress communication skills and corps activities. Written reports
and speeches compliment academic materials. Cadet corps activities include holding positions of
greater responsibility in planning and execution of corps projects.
Aerospace Science III This science course discusses principles of propulsion systems, fundamentals of
rocketry and their application to spacecraft, principles underlying space travel, and various aspects of
space exploration. This year's materials are perhaps the most technical. Turbojet, turbofan, rocket,
reciprocating engines, and detail examination of propulsion systems are explained. Rocketry and
spacecraft areas cover rocket propulsion systems, guidance and control, and orbits. The space travel
section further discusses the development, use and future of artificial earth satellites and interplanetary
probes. Leadership studies guide cadets in preparing for higher education and choosing a career path.
Also, job search preparation and interviewing techniques are covered. Financial planning skills to
include banking, spending, savings and investments are taught.

Aerospace Science IV Most academics of the fourth year are related to the exploration of potential
career activities, and further development of the cadet's management and
leadership abilities. There is an introduction of civil aviation, general aviation, and governmental
activities related to the aviation and space programs. Leadership activities reach their height during the
fourth year. Since AS-IV can offered "independent study", AS-IV cadets are actively involved in
training first year students, and can be used in classes throughout the day to help with classroom
instruction. Additionally, AS-IV cadets are the heart of the corps' leadership during their final year.
They are either actively running the corps, extra curricular business, or assisting other leaders.

4. This opportunity allows those who desire it, to get a head start on their college credits, and validates our belief
that JROTC is a “world-class” academic leadership program worthy of higher education accreditation. Currently
leadership elective credits offered on www.jrotccollegecredit.com remain available at a higher tuition rate, than
this program with Adams State College. Eventually, ASC could become the sole source of academic credits.
Please pass this release on to all of your programs as allowed. Agency modifications authorized, to comply with
local policies and restrictions appropriate to internal agency requirements.
