A keystone of the CAP Cadet program is Orientation Flights  (O-Flights) in both powered and glider aircraft.  These are actual flights taken in CAP aircraft flown by CAP pilots.  The pilots follow a curriculum to ensure Cadets receive specific instruction for each of the 3 powered and the # glider flights they take.

Resources for pilot / flying lessons are available to CAP Cadets.

Squadron: As a squadron, one night a month is generally devoted to an Aerospace Education lesson.  MD-332 has completed a Rocketry unit, consisting of studying fundamentals of rocketry, and building & launching rockets.  Many of our cadets earned the CAP Rocketry Achievement.  Finally, we host aerospace-related guest speakers & demonstrations, and take local trips.
