Daedalian Mission: Advocate for air and space power and honor those who flew and fly in defense of our nation.


Why are we doing the survey?

We want to hear from those who are serving or have served as military aviators on issues that are important to them. The Daedalians want to assess the effectiveness of our programs, seek better ways to meet our stated mission, and determine if current organizational/meeting structure meets the needs of current and future members.

Why is my participation important?

Without hearing from you and others with a military aviation background, we cannot advocate for your current needs in air power and strengthen our programs in this professional organization.

What will the organization do with the survey results?

Daedalian leadership will look at the results of the survey to review ways the organization can better serve our mission.


When will the survey run?

The survey will open on Tuesday, 5 April, and close on Wednesday, 20 April.

How long does the survey take to complete?

The survey should take approximately 3 minutes.

Can I start and stop the survey and save my progress?

The survey has been designed to be completed in 3 minutes. If you do not finish, you will not be able to return to the survey.

What if I don’t complete the survey?

We hope that you will answer all the questions, but if you do not answer a question by choice, please hit the “Submit Survey” button and any answers you have provided will be accepted.


Is there a prize to taking the survey?

Yes, there will be two types of prizes with a total of 65 gift cards given out during and after the survey. The top prize is a $250 Visa gift card.

Note: Employees, board members and their families are not eligible for prize selection.

Do I have to complete the survey to be entered to win a prize?

Yes, you must answer each question on the survey to be in the drawing for an incentive.


Are my responses anonymous?

Yes. Any and all information that you provide is strictly confidential. Your information will not be shared with anyone, including military services. Rather, the data we collect is only used to create statistics to improve our organization and its programs.

How do I know that my information will stay private?

The Order of Daedalians takes its commitment to confidentiality very seriously. Technological and statistical safeguards are in place to ensure your information will not be disclosed to anyone.

Will I be contacted again?

You will not be contacted for any additional information. If you complete the survey, you will be entered into the prize pool where you have the chance of receiving a Starbucks gift card or one of our larger VISA gift cards as a token of appreciation.

Who created the questions?

Questions on this survey were developed by Daedalian leaders who have or are currently serving as military aviators.

What kind of questions are on the survey?

The survey has multiple choice questions, open-ended questions and rating questions. There are some questions for demographic interest as well as questions on your assessment of the Order of Daedalians.

Why are you asking my age?

We want to better understand the issues provided by each generation to align our services and initiatives.

Are there different questions for different people?

The questions are the same for everyone and are designed to be answered by military aviators in all services.


Will the answers on my survey remain anonymous?

We have no way of associating any survey response with the person who submitted that response. We ask questions about demographic traits on our anonymous surveys only to gain additional insight into the data through breakouts by demographics. We will never report data on an individual respondent.

Who will receive the data with survey results?

The survey results will be collected by Order of Daedalians staff. Volunteers from the University of the Incarnate Word will help disseminate the survey data but will not share the specific data outside of Daedalian leadership. Overall trends may be shared.

What will leaders do after the survey?

Daedalians will use the statistical data to look at our current objectives and determine how we can provide the best value to our members and aviators in general.
