Cadet Orientation Flights



The Colorado Wing cadet orientation flight program shares with cadets the thrill of flying. Every CAP cadet under age 18 is eligible for five flights in a powered aircraft (usually a single-engine Cessna), five flights in a glider aircraft, and an unlimited number of backseat flights when conditions allow. Orientation flights are always free to cadets. Survey data has repeatedly shown that the #1 reason youth become CAP cadets is an interest in flying. Our Wing Goal is to ensure every new Cadet receives their first flight within 60 days of join CAP and soon after they have completed initial training.  Use this page to sign up for Orientation Flights.
