Cadets Experience Aerospace Education
Aerospace Education (one of the three CAP missions) is not just classroom or textbook instruction. It is in person experience for our cadets.
Over the summer, cadets from across Michigan Wing had opportunities to attend displays and demonstrations of both current and historical military aircraft. In early July, the Oakland Composite Squadron attended a demonstration hosted by an F-22 Demo team, last week cadets from across SE Michigan attended an A-10 demonstration at Selfridge, and this past weekend cadets from Alpena were invited to attend a static display of a B-29 and B-24. In addition to these types of events, cadets from across Michigan Wing have also volunteered at airshows allowing them further close up opportunities to aircraft.
