Cadet Programs

For youth between the ages of 12-21, Cadet programs focus on aerospace education, leadership development and physical fitness. Cadets advance at their own pace in a 16-step program that establishes a foundation for advanced education opportunities in STEM education (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). CAP also offers flight training for youth interested in learning to fly. Cadets who are interested in a military career may enter the Air Force as an Airman First Class (E3) rather than Airman Basic (E1).
