The "Air Scouts" program was established in 1941 and with this came the suspension of the Aviation merit badge, and the creation of four more specialized aeronautical subjects. (Aerodynamics, Aeronautics, Airplane Design, and Airplane Structure). The Air Scouts lasted until 1949 when they were renamed Air Explorers and integrated over the years into the Exploring component of Scouting, lasting until 1965 when it was finally dissolved.
