The 24,000 Civil Air Patrol Cadets are driven, responsible leaders-in-training! In the Cadet program, youth age 12 through 18 learn to lead, drill, and search & rescue skills - they take trips, get in shape, and push themselves to new limits.
The Upper Montgomery Composite Squadron meets 2 hours per week and sometimes does things on Saturdays. Cadets have opportunities to attend leadership encampments, take orientation flights in powered and glider aircraft, attend career academies, and do cool activities during the summer.
The cadet program provides a well rounded program of leadership, aerospace education, physical fitness, and moral & ethical decision making.
