Cadet Orientation Flights
Please contact the Squadron Commander:
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.
Here at Hawk Composite Squadron, we are deeply committed to giving our cadets every opportunity to gain experience and succeed, and orientation flights are no exception. At a minimum, we will attempt to hold at least one series (4-6 individual flights) every month, barring restriction from the New England weather. When scheduling these flights, cadets who have not yet had an opportunity to complete their first flight will always have priority, but our overall goal will be to have all of our cadets receive all ten flights that come with their membership before they lose their eligibility.
