Arnold Air Society

The Arnold Air Society is a professional, honorary, service organization advocating the support of aerospace power.  We are comprised of Air Force ROTC cadets who are dedicated to improving ourselves and our society through professional development and community outreach.  As aspiring Air Force officers, we strive to be not only leaders in our nation’s military, but also everyday citizens of integrity and character.  Horace M. Hickam Squadron, based here at Detachment 175, hopes to reach these goals by participating in many community service projects throughout the UH Manoa campus and the island of O’ahu.  We consistently rank among the highest in community service hours in the nation, which is a tribute to the hard work and dedication of our active members.  

Here are just a few examples of what we do:arnoldair

  • participate in the Relay for Life with the American Cancer Society
  • attend First Saturdays at the Kanewai Lo’i
  • send a delegation to our Area and National Conventions
  • volunteer at local JROTC events such as the Punahou Triathlon and NJROTC Harbor Challenge

Along with the personal growth accompanying these service opportunities, the members of Horace M. Hickam Squadron also gain a keener sense of professionalism and responsibility through their leadership positions within the society.  This has led to several Area-level staff appointments, and a successful bid to host the Area X Convention for Fall 2010.  To find out more about Arnold Air Society, visit
