Welcome to the Air Force Academy Parents Association of New Jersey​ website


The Air Force Academy Parents Association of New Jersey (AFAPANJ) supports cadets as they prepare to join the long blue line, and their parents and families as they commit to encourage them through this anything but typical academy experience.

The Air Force Academy Parents Association of New Jersey is recognized by the Air Force Academy with official lines of communications to and from the USAFA Parents Club Liaison, who communicates to the elected president. This information is securely disseminated to all current members.

AFAPANJ membership provides benefits for both member families and cadets. These benefits include events for both cadets and member families, access to information directly from the Air Force Academy Parent Liaison.  For further information regarding benefits and membership costs, please follow below link:
