The cadet orientation flight program shares with cadets the thrill of flying. Every CAP cadet under age 18 is eligible for five flights in a powered aircraft (usually a single-engine Cessna), five flights in a glider aircraft, and an unlimited number of backseat flights when conditions allow.
Flying is always free to cadets. Because survey data has repeatedly shown that the #1 reason youth become CAP cadets is an interest in flying, to motivate cadets fly them regularly.
We would like to help your Unit schedule aor for a concerted effort to make O-Flight opportunities available to your cadets, if that is of interest to you.
We would also encourage you to solicit your cadets to get some “ad hoc” O-Flights (whether 1,2 or 3 cadets at a time) whenever they are available, and we can find a pilot available.
You must complete the Aircraft Ground Handling Training before your flight.
