CAP Cadets and Senior Members have opportunities to fly in aircraft, learn to lead, hike, camp, get in shape, and push themselves to new limits. If you’re dreaming about a career in aviation, space, or the military, CAP’s Cadet Program is for you. Unlike other military-affiliated Cadet programs, only CAP is active in real-world emergency response services such as disaster relief and aircraft Search & Rescue.To become a cadet, you must be be at least 12 years old and not yet 19 years old. Cadets meet 2 hours per week and one Saturday per month, on average, and also have opportunities to attend leadership encampments, career academies, and other activities during the summer.
