Wright Brothers Award

The Wright Brothers Award

The Wright Brothers Award in the CAP Cadet Program took effect on 1 April 2003, in the centennial of Orville and Wilbur Wright’s historic first flight.

This award is earned after completing Phase I, “The Learning Phase,” consisting of the first three achievements of the cadet program. In addition, the cadet must pass a challenging examination testing leadership knowledge and proficiency in drill and ceremonies.

Once a cadet earns the Wright Brothers Award, they are promoted to the grade of cadet staff sergeant, begin service as cadet non-commissioned officers, and continue to participate and advance as cadets in the U.S. Air Force Auxiliary Civil Air Patrol.
