Delete the beginning portion of the URL with the 20% and insert a colon between the https and the //. That's what worked for me.

The difficulty with medical fam course we have found when talking about it is that a lot of the "fun" of an activity is lost if they doent have a medical background coming into it, but to do anything worthwhile to create a medical "background" will be around 4-5 days of drink from the firehose.  So which end of the spectrum do you concentrate the activity on?

Well, I've loaded blue-nose AIM-9s with cadets without having to teach them advanced math to cover missile transfer alignments or weapons school level fuzing... the scope is a FAM only, so familiarization with what a given community does is the goal.

I would totally get behind an aero med fam course, since I work with that community in my design work and see its value. On a FAM level, there's a lot that can be done, as you've clearly laid out some great activities; I remember taking a group of a dozen 16+ year old cadets through an alt chamber in FLWG (needed an FAA student medical to ride) and they had a blast. Literally. We warned them what not to eat the night before or for breakfast *and they ignored this; it was educational and fun to watch the girls and boys reactions at low pressure. All the boys belched and "vented" liberally, laughing behind their masks, while the girls struggled with the discomfort until one on the end lifted a cheek and vented (which promptly triggered a serial ripple fart amongst the other young ladies and an identical row of red upper faces behind their masks)!  Good fun - very educational - actually quite "team building".

I used to think that the CAPID numbering scheme followed a general pattern, but it doesn't seem to hold true.  My number is 104*** and I joined in August 1977 (12 years old, NYW).  I didn't have an SSN yet, either.

SarDragon, when I try to access those links I get a Page Not Found error. Looking at the URLs I see all of them start with "http://%20/https//" and I think it's giving my browser fits.

I'd like to see the old FAA Fam Course reinstated.

I'd also like to see a medical Fam Course started.

Survival School (either the original type run at the AFA or CSS that some of the CadetStuff folks use to run)

I like the USAF career field orientation courses
CCT
SF
would like to see a medical one.....
when I lived in San Antonio some friends and I chatted about doing an Aeromedical Evacuation Orientation Course
basic aeromed, flight physiology, altitude chamber, water survival, and some simulated missions on at least a C130 (we had a static for training)
