The Cadet Orientation Flight Program introduces youth to general aviation through hands-on orientation flights in single engine aircraft and gliders. The program’s motto describes what cadet flying is all about: “Safe, Fun, Educational.” The program is limited to current CAP cadets under 18 years of age. At no time will cadets sustain any costs associated with this program. Senior members are not authorized to participate in flights being conducted as Air Force - assigned missions unless they are serving as the pilot in command or escorting a cadet who requires special assistance.
The primary goal of the Civil Air Patrol cadet orientation flight program is to share with cadets the thrill of flying. However, that objective is achieved only if safety is a priority.
Moreover, orientation flights are opportunities for cadets to become safety conscious. Everything we do involves risk. To stay safe, Cadets must learn to manage those risks through Operational Risk Management. ORM is a common sense way to detect, assess, and control risk. This process involves having a team identify the activity’s potential hazards, assess the risks, and decide on risk controls before the activity begins. To learn more about ORM, visit the safety section at gocivilairpatrol.com. to become safety conscious.
