Cadet Programs



Throughout the cadet program, emphasis is placed on individualized study, preparation, instruction, and attainment. Each phase of the cadet program emphasizes five areas of achievement: leadership laboratory, aerospace education, physical fitness, moral leadership, and squadron activities. These five areas of achievement are implemented through the use of trained senior cadets and senior members who work collectively and individually with each cadet desiring and needing assistance. The program is primarily oriented toward activities held in individual squadrons. Some of these activities include aircraft orientation flights, model airplane building, drill teams, model rocketry, search and rescue, and survival training.
