It is not covered in the manual because this is a non issue.
Offers can fall into a flight just like anyone else. 

Saluting the 1st Sgt. in formation is not a crime and, if done correctly, nobody will get hurt. 


Thank you!! I thought that made the most sense.

Edit:  Officers saluting NCOs still seems odd to me but I guess it makes perfect sense in this scenario!

I can't answer how my squadron does it, as we have only one cadet officer (me). However, you can make a flight of officers, have one officer stand in the "flight sergeant" position and one officer stand as flight commander - assuming you have one other flight, then your first sergeant will be over two flights, or one actual squadron, in formation.

FYI, the flight commander never reports to the first sergeant in formation. Only the flight sergeant does. Since you would have an officer filling a junior NCO role, I'd say it's okay for them to report to a senior NCO (the first sergeant).

Hello!

How does your squadron arrange cadet officers while in formation?  We currently have a flight of all officers (We're top heavy).  There is some dispute as to how to conduct a formation with that flight included, with opinions in the squadron ranging from "Cadet officers do not belong in a flight" to "Cadet officers form up as [insert wide range of different ideas here]" to "Cadet officers stand in formation as a flight."  I've consulted the drill manual, which was not very helpful as it doesn't address the particular point (unless I'm blind, which is also entirely possible).  Personally, I think that everyone should stand in formation -- But that also poses the issue of how to conduct opening/closings.  Let me explain:  If you have an flight containing the cadet officer support staff, and the first sergeant forms the squadron up.... how do you have the officer flight report?  If you put a "flight sergeant" out front, then you have an officer saluting an NCO, which is wrong, and if you don't, then I don't even know what you'd do, I guess just have the Cadet Deputy for Support stand out front as flight commander?

This is the first time our squadron has ever had this many cadet officers, so previously it hasn't been an issue.  Problem is, currently, nobody in the squadron seems to know what to do.

This is probably an incredibly stupid set of questions, but nonetheless I'd like to get some answers to clear up the confusion we are experiencing.  I apologize in advance.


Respectfully,

C/2d Lt Starbird, CAP

For those considering, I just spent a few days at the RTI in Sioux Falls for the IG Senior Course. It's comfortable, favorably comparable to low-cost hotels/motels, and was a pleasant alternative to $100+/night hotels that I imagined I would be looking for.

Did my RSC in MN Wing in 2015. Glad I went. I got to meet Senior Members that I didn't previosly know as well as work with some that I did. The material was interesting and informative and we had some quality Instructors. All-in-all I had a great time while learning.

There's always the PCR RSC which is normally held at Nellis AFB.

Although there seems to be a little conflict:
Web states:  Palace Station Hotel and Casino = ~$830
Flyer states:  Nellis AFB = ~$700

Actually just for the fun of it, here are the cost comparisons; for food I just assume ~$20 daily, which may be a little low depending on the location unless otherwise stated.  In order of cost, not including travel:

SER = ~$200 (fee includes lodging and the stated $10.45 was used for meals)
NCR = ~$200 to $340
RMR = $200 (includes lodging and meals)
GLR = ~$302 to $470
MER = ~$495
SWR = ~$605 (fee uses the stated $10 per day for meals)
PCR = ~$700 to $830
NER = ~$710
