Also...don't forget about asking around the squadrons with aircraft.

They may be ferrying and aircraft or doing some long distance flight training.

Much easier then trying to get a MSA through the pipeline.

NIN, the AFI(2014 publication) now allows army tabs to be worn permanently on AF uniforms.  Actually just about all sister service skill badges and patches are allowed.

Too bad AFI 36-2903 doesn't apply to CAP.

I let NHQ about the fact that the new PT program doesn't show up on the Cadet Tracking Report. They have put in a trouble ticket on it and we can hope it will show up in the near future.

My advice to get started:


1. Go and study your lead lab manual religiously and memorize it (a chapter or two ahead, too). It was designed to help you at this stage of your game.


2. You actually have a short and sweet job description for Element Leader - written at the end of CAPR 20-1 Organization of CAP.
https://www.gocivilairpatrol.com/media/cms/R020_001_73F1BA70FD9EB.pdf. Also read the job description for your boss, the Flight Sergeant, and his boss, the Flight Commander, so you understand their role.


3. The Cadet Staff Handbook has some very good tips for you (see pages 20 (expectations for element leaders), 31/32 (inspections), and most significant, pages 39 and 40 which give you a very specific set of guidance for your new job as Element Leader.
Download it at:  https://www.gocivilairpatrol.com/media/cms/Cadet_Staff_Handbook__Nov_16__Web_47474DD79B032.pdf


4. As you start to invest increasing time, talent, and treasure as a junior leader in CAP, keep in mind your priorities. You must put your Faith, your Family, and your Job (i.e. school for you cadets) before CAP or any other great volunteer activity. Never let those priorities get out of line, at your peril.


Best of luck.

Yeah, something I really would go for (this is for callouts) is telling them uniform and everything when you know it, anything you wish or would want to be done to you is what you should do, E.g for me it was uniform and what was going on, when I joined I got barely any notice of this and only just a "will u b there" email from my element leader, which for me as a new cadet really annoyed me not knowing if something was going on.

I personally put uniform, stuff were doing and anything that will be coming up such as "Hey and FEST is coming up soon so if you want to go to that you should sign up or start getting ready for it" and a reminder to send callouts at the top and bottom.

Other then that as said look over their uniforms and there is really not much else to do other then be a good example to them.

Yeah, that was changed with the 2014 version. The AF used to be *really* restrictive about tabs and a lot of badges from other services. Now less so.

If you have fixed element assignments, i.e. cadets assigned to your element, make note of unplanned absences and follow up with the cadet. Simply noticing they were absent may encourage them to continue coming back.

As you get more experience, see how they are promoting. If they need help, try to get it for them. This does not necessarily mean you have to tutor them, but pass on to your flt sgt that you have cadets who need help with achievement #. If your cadets do, most assuredly other cadets will.

Finally, set a good example by making sure YOU continue to promote and seek help if you need it.
