Cadet Orientation Flights

JeffersonEver wonder what it is like to fly?


The United States Air Force Auxiliary РCivil Air Patrol offers a cadet orientation flight program that enables our cadets to experience the thrill of flying.  Every cadet, 18 and under is eligible for five front seat flights in a USAF/AUX-CAP powered aircraft (single-engine fixed wing aircraft), five flights in a glider aircraft, and an unlimited number of backseat flights as flight conditions permit.


The National Capital Wing (our higher headquarters) has a fleet of Cessna 172 and 182 aircraft assigned with multiple flight crews available at any given time, many of which are certified flight instructors with an impeccable flight safety record.
