I promoted to C/2d Lt on 28 March 2019 and I had assumed that NHQ would send me a copy of Aerospace: Journey of flight that I need for my future AE tests. Do I need to to buy one from vanguard or does it just take a while for it to arrive (it has now been almost a full month). If NHQ did send one me one and there was a error in the shipping process is there a way to contact NHQ to get another one sent to me?

Until you receive your books, you can download the material from the Cadet Library under the CAP members page.

True story - awarded my Mitchell in the summer of 1976, received my Aerospace: Journey of flight  and congratulations package the summer of 2018! (It appears that getting my somewhat tattered Mitchell into e-Services triggered something. Great textbook, btw!)

Anybody who has earned their Mitchell should be able to take and pass the Yeager on the first attempt no problem.

I took it closed book, cold, on a 36yo Mitchell, and had no trouble with it.

Same deal with me, took it cold and got an 85.

Back then etodd it wasn't an open book test.

I took mine just before the online version came out (2003) and open-book was optional. I don't remember my score.

I took it with benefit of an ancient Mitchell, cold, no look ups. Passed on the first try.

Took it in 1983, when it first came out. National would send an 11x17 certificate and small card to carry in your wallet.

Yours is like mine, then ... so old it doesn't even have Gen. Yeager's name on it.  Just "Aerospace Education Program for Senior Members."
