O-FLIGHT PROGRAM MOTTO: Safe, Fun, Educational

The #1 reason cadets join Civil Air Patrol is to fly. To motivate them to achieve in the Cadet Program, fly them regularly. It is because of the flying program that CAP is able to accomplish its other goals in leadership, fitness, and character. At our squadron, we try to get new cadets up into the air as quickly as possible after joining. However, in order to fly, there are requirements that need to be met before you can get into the air, so if you want to fly, work with your flight sergeant and flight commander to get these completed!
