The Air Advisor Academy emblem consists of three distinctive elements; a shield, a scroll bearing the name of the academy, and two black wingform icons outlined in yellow.

The shield hails back to the tradition of the U.S. Air Force, including the early days of Eddie Rickenbacker, foundation which supports every generation of Airman. The shield is shaded in ultramarine blue and represents the sky, the primary theater of Air Force operations, and is a color indicative of the honor and dignity of our branch of service. The yellow outline on the shield, wingform icons and scroll represent the sun and the excellence required of Air Force personnel. The black of the wingforms represents the weight and serious nature of the advising mission and its impact on strategic objectives.

The two wingforms represent the multivariate nature of the Air Advisor Academy. The smaller wingform shows our early beginnings from the days of the first Wright Flyer as we took our initial tentative steps toward mastering the realm of eagles. The larger wingform represents our evolution in the profession of arms from being an air force to an aerospace force and beyond, expanding the mission, tactics and technology, continually embracing the challenge of the pathfinder. Together they represent all air advisors and dedication to the advising mission in support of national strategic objectives and their sacrifice by mirroring the structure of the Air Advisor memorial.
