LEARN, LEAD, & SERVE as a Cadet in the Civil Air Patrol

In celebration of Amelia Earhart month we invited a representative from the Civic Air Patrol to our January 2015 program meeting. The following information was provided to our Club:

Do you want to fly? Do you want to honor and serve America? Then rise to the challenge of cadet membership in the US Air Force Auxiliary, Civil Air Patrol.

You’ll find cadet life exciting if you enjoy flying, leadership training, obstacle courses, model rocketry, teambuilding, hiking & camping, earning rank & awards, search & rescue, exploring aviation careers and making friends.

You must be at least 12 but not yet 19 to join as a cadet. CAP also offers opportunities for adults.

On average, cadets meet one night a week for two hours and enjoy special events one Saturday each month. In summer, you can attend a week-long camp.

Annual dues and uniform expenses will total about $100. Other fees may be required for weekend and summer events.

As a cadet, you are never obligated to join the military, but 10% of all Air Force Academy cadets got their start in AP.

Adult volunteers, fingerprinted and screened by the FBI, chaperone all cadet activities.

The benefits of cadet life include develop leadership skills, test-fly potential careers, solidify your moral values and succeed in school.
