Orientation Flights

The goal of the cadet orientation flight program is to introduce youth to flying.

he Cadet Orientation Flight Program is designed to introduce our youth to 
general aviation through hands-on orientation flights in single engine aircraft and gliders. The program is limited to current CAP cadets under 18 years of age. Squadron commanders should try to arrange orientation flights for new CAP cadets as soon as possible after the cadet joins CAP (national headquarters will report on those squadrons that have orientation flights of cadets flying within the first 90 days of joining CAP). The program is voluntary and primarily motivational and it should stimulate an interest in general aviation and aerospace activities. At no time will cadets sustain any costs associated with this program.
