We did this in every unit I was ever in. The cadets would report through their chain to their Deputy Commander and the SMs would do the same. The deputies would report to the commander.

Congrats on the growth. Work on retention.

That's because they don't, and there's no such thing as a "Senior Member Flight Commander".

The Senior Members are not in the cadet chain and it would be inappropriate for them to "report"
to a cadet.

There's no issue with having Seniors in formation, I've always encouraged the practice, but
no reason for them to report, and in the case they would be, the only appropriate person for
them to report to would be CDS.

Our squadron has recently grown from a dozen cadets plus 3-4 seniors to a 57-member squadron with active non-parent seniors. We have decided to create a senior flight for opening formation, and my question is this: The Cadet First Sergeant calls for the report. What is the appropriate response for a SM Flight Commander, if different from the cadet flights? Some of our older senior members don't like the idea of a SM saluting to the Cadet First Sergeant.

Automagically? Not automatically?

Is that a new word?

I like what it implies!

Consider how you order these to avoid having a bunch of money tied up in a stack of t-shirts at any given time. My squadron is going to move to a just-in-time type system where we do two orders a year, loosely aligned with our three cohorts, and order exact quantities of what we need. I’m tired of stocking t-shirts. Your ability to do this depends on what the minimum run for your supplier is - our local company likes us and doesn’t seem to have a minimum run, but we’ll find out.

How are those paid for?  Are they mandatory?

Ours are unit provided.

Along the lines of....

They may vary in appearance. Each class has a unique image color (gold, cyan, red, etc) picked by the Flight Sergeant/Senior Cadet Instructor.

Thank you, my original appointment was under the previous version of 60-1
which called out Unit CCs with flight activity in their squadron as eligible to
be FROs, was Wing DOS for 2.5 years, and a PSC (though I'm not current with that).

" FROs must have flying experience either as a pilot or as an aircrew member. Pilot or
aircrew experience should preferably be within CAP, but external experience is acceptable. FROs do not
have to be current to fly within CAP. Additional IC guidance can be found in paragraph In order
to be an FRO, personnel must also:"

"4-5. Flight Release Officer Qualifications. Individuals designated as a FRO must meet the following minimum requirements:
a. Possess a sound knowledge of the CAP flight management program and flight release procedures.
b. Complete the National CAP FRO training program.
c. Satisfy one of the following criteria:
(1) Qualified incident commander, or
(2) Unit commander of a unit with CAP flight activity, or
(3) An experienced CAP pilot with a private or higher pilot certificate (need not be current)."

All I know is that when my wing commander approves the level V it is recorded immediately in e-services.

Does he also have region level rights?

I don't think it takes a Region commander to approve level 5.  It DOES take the Region commander to approve the LTC promotion that comes afterwards.

Region CC or designate must approve the Wilson Award / Level V.

MSA,UDF, GTM, MS, MO, etc.

How did you become a flight release officer without being an MO or pilot?

He's a Mission Scanner.

You need to be a pilot or air crew (CAPR 70-1,
