I am pretty sure a wing is higher then a group. Many groups make a wing, many wings make an AF? But I am pretty sure that a group is under a wing.

I say this because in CAP I was NJ Wing and in Group 225. So my succession went:

Nat'l CAP
North-East Region
NJ Wing
Group 225
Air Victory Museum Composite Squadron

In AFROTC I go this:

Nat'l AFROTC
Southwest Region
Detachment 028 (Wing)
13th Operations Group
13th Operations Squadron
Echo Flight

HAH! I found it. The definition of an air group is right in the Royal Canadian Air Cadets drill manual!!

Air Group: A military formation of 2 or more WINGS, and supporting formations.

The air force equivilant to a brigade.

Plus, I am part of 746 squadron, fraser valley wing, Vancouver Air Group.

And yes, we DO use the metric system, like the rest of the world.

We, Americans, are just stubborn.
