Interested in Becoming a Cadet in Civil Air Patrol?
"I made my first solo flight at a CAP encampment."
Would you like to honor and serve America? Do you want to prepare for your future while making new friends? Then rise to the challenge of cadet membership in the U.S. Air Force Auxiliary, Civil Air Patrol.
Cadets fly, learn to lead, hike, camp, get in shape, and push
themselves to new limits. If you’re dreaming about a career in aviation, space or the military, CAP’s Cadet Program is for you.
To become a cadet, you must be be at least 12 years old and not yet 19 years old. Cadets at the Whitefield Cadet Squadron will meet every Thursday evening, from 1830-2100 hrs (6:30-9:00
pm), and have the option of taking part in any of our regular weekend activities, cadet orientation flights, first aid and CPR training, and much more. On top of that, our cadets also have
opportunities to attend leadership encampments, career academies, and other activities during the summer.
I encourage you to take a moment to look through our site at the activities and training that our cadets go through and visit the national webpage of our organization, so that you may learn about all of the possible opportunities that exist for you in our program.
After reviewing everything, if you feel that you are up for the adventure and challenge of becoming a cadet in the Civil Air Patrol, please feel free to contact us and attend one of our squadron meetings.
