The first Air University commander, Maj. Gen. Muir S. Fairchild, and Gen. Carl A. Spaatz, commanding general, Army Air Forces, are considered the ‘founding fathers’ of professional military education. Today, Air University is the Air Force and Space Force’s center of enlisted and officer professional military education. The university uses leading edge pedagogy to develop leaders, such as the use of the mixed reality learning experience at Squadron Officer School. Through the use of avatars, the experience exposes SOS students to real-world scenarios where they have to use their strengths and understand their weaknesses in conflict resolution.
