Is there a CDL air brake endorsement?

No.

In the United States, there is only an air brake RESTRICTION.  If the CDL applicant does not take the written air brake exam when applying for a CDL or does not take the road test with an air brake equipped vehicle, the CDL will have a restriction “L” on the CDL, meaning vehicles without air brakes.  This restriction only applies to vehicles that require a CDL.  For example, a driver with a CDL and air brake restriction can still legally operate a box truck with a GVWR less than 26,001 lbs. with air brakes, because the box truck does not require a CDL.
