Cadet Program Overview:

For more than 50 years, CAP has provided America's youth with exciting and challenging opportunities through the Cadet Program. Tens of thousands of young people, ages 12 to 21, have participated in hands-on activities at the local, state, and national level.

The CAP Cadet Program provides you the opportunity to develop leadership skills through your love of aviation. You will progress through a 15-step program with exciting aviation and aerospace activities occurring on both a local and national level. Some of the local activities you may be able to participate in are:

Survival Training
Search and Rescue
Disaster Relief
Radio Communications
Land Navigation
Model Rocketry
Flight Training (powered and glider)
Leadership Training
Public Speaking
First Aid & CPR
Physical Fitness
Sports Activities
Orientation Flights (aboard CAP or Military aircraft)
Astronomy


In addition to the wide range of local activities, you will have the opportunity to qualify for special national activities such as travel to encampments which focus on a variety of aviation, aerospace, search and rescue, and Pararescue courses. One of the many highlights of your cadet career will be attending Cadet Leadership School, Cadet Officers School, and the International Air Cadet Exchange program.

Cadets compete annually for special CAP admission into the U.S. Air Force Academy preparatory school. Military officer mentoring and guidance helps to inspire and encourage cadets who are interested in aviation industry or military careers. CAP is proud to report that 10% of U.S. Air Force Academy appointees are formed CAP cadets. Additionally, both West Point and the U.S. Naval Academy admit many CAP cadets each year.

CAP Cadet Program eligibility requirements include:

*A prospective cadet must be at least 12 years old or attending the 6th grade
*A prospective cadet cannot be married
*The maximum age to join as a new cadet is 18 years of age

Drug Demand Reduction Program 

The Drug Demand Reduction Program is chartered with the responsibility to make the CAP an environment that promotes and supports education, community involvement, social responsibility and respect for individuals. The DDR Program began in 1994 to support the "Air Force Family" within 30 miles of an Air Force installation. The program has since evolved into five areas:
 
  • Drug Demand Reduction Initiatives Program (DDRIP)
  • Education and Training
  • Collaborative Efforts
  • Middle School Initiative
  • Community Outreach Activities
