Also check CAPR 39-2, 3.2.5 which specifically addresses the process for cadets transferring to active senior status.

As mentioned before, this is a one way trip so make sure that you have done as much of the cadet program as you wish or are able before starting Down this road. If you're 18 and don't have your orientation flights completed, you won't be able to complete the Mitchell award.

Wow, that's a change.  I never finished all my O-rides, not because I was not interested in flying for obvious reasons.  I had my Private Pilot Glider by the time I was 17 and was already soloed in a SEL airplane and was on track to get my SEL add on at least by 18, which is when I got it.  By this time I had already had my Earhart working towards the Spaatz, which I did not get.  Do they give credit for cadets working on aeronautical ratings?  I mean a kid soloing a plane has more aeronautical knowledge than the 5 flights I give the kido's from their syllabus.  Don't get me wrong I am all for the O-ride program, especially since I get free hours and currency out of it.  I think its a little over the top to penalize people for not getting all of them.

I was a TFO before I became a butter bar. In hindsight over 20+ years, there is no value to the FO structure. Eliminate it. Make SMOWG a training grade for either the O or NCO path.

 Imagine how many of those CAP could put out during a mission for the cost of one C172.

It'll still be both for a long time. If the pilot was VFR and no flight plan and no flight following, but the spouse knew the pilot was 'suppose to be flying to a city 400 miles away" .... its going to be manned planes flying that route at the start. If they can narrow it down to a much smaller area of high probability ... THEN bring in the small drones.

Yes, if CAP ever gets anything like a Predator, then the whole mission could be flown with 'a real drone'. But lets not hold our breath for that one. LOL

I think it is possible that "sustained" in this context has become "Nevada Speak." I have heard our cadets refer to the Armstrong Achievement as C/CMSgt sustained. It isn't technically wrong either as sustained means "continuing for an extended period or without interruption."

Actually it is technically wrong. As Eclipse pointed out above, the term "sustained" has a very specific meaning in CAP regulations. Beyond that, it implies that there is an option for the cadet to lose rank if the "ghost achievement" is not completed, which there absolutely is not.

The fact of the matter is, there are multiple achievements in the CAP cadet program, primarily in the third and fourth phase, that have no accompanying promotion.

Each and every one of those is spelled out, letter by letter, in normal usage.

I think he meant that they are not pronounced "Capper, Cap-em, Faaahh, Gips, cap, led, Errs, empeg, etc...."

...CAPR, CAPM, FAA, GPS, CAP, LED, IRS, mpg. You get the idea.

You mean you don't pronounce all those?

Maybe I'm doing it wrong...

But in all seriousness, initialisms and acronyms are the nature of the beast when it comes to any military/emergency services, so it's best to just get used to it.

Ive flown more than my fair share out of a particular So Cal Airport...... Absolutely not a solution.  But great that someone thinks so.  Without the people on the ground who can land and point guns, CAP is virtually worthless on the border.  At least that's what my silver clasp on my CD ribbon tells me.
