"AES students are also encouraged to consider a technical minor or double major in electrical engineering, computer science, applied math, engineering physics, astrophysical and planetary sciences, or atmospheric and oceanic sciences."

-CU Boulder Aerospace engineering requirements page

I'd like to know what subject area you would find most useful paired with aerospace in the job market.

I wouldn't double major in anything. It is a waste of time. You are better off getting really good at aerospace enigneering than getting kind of good at several things.

Honestly, minors very, very rarely help you. Unless you are looking into jobs that require very specific competencies that can be enhanced by a minor, most people just aren't going to care.
