We were thrilled to have C/Lt Col Khurshid, on hand from college, assist with the practical radio training and evaluations using the squadron van's new HF radio. 5 more members are now basic radio qualified!
Last night the cadets and senior members participated in a virtual aerospace lesson about the CAP Model Rocketry Program - Redstone Stage followed by an at home rocketry activity. Everyone learned about the foundations of modern rocketry, the requirements of the cadet model rocketry program, and an activity to make and fly a straw rocket.
As an added bonus, the squadron commander presented his personal experiences in rocketry building and failure with some pictures of his own destroyed high power model rockets and lessons learned.
