Yes - the Great Start program is where you want to be.


"Cadet Great Start is a comprehensive introduction to CAP for new cadets. It transforms a cohort of ordinary youth into cadet airmen in 5 short weeks, while giving cadet NCOs and officers opportunities to apply their leadership skills.

The core curriculum remains useful to squadrons and their cadets, but some content is not up-to-date, as certain aspects of cadet life have evolved since Cadet Great Start was first introduced. For example, thereís no mention of the Curry Blues Voucher, CEAP, the New Cadet Guide, or the Active Cadet Fitness Program.

Accordingly, squadron staff who want to implement the current edition of Cadet Great Start will need to improvise a bit during some lessons.

Updating Cadet Great Start is a top priority in 2018. The 2018 draft will be posted here as it becomes available."

We are in the process of rebuilding the cadet side of our composite squadron.  We are starting back the beginning with new cadet program leadership, too.  Are there lesson plans available for taking cadets through their first year?  If so, where?  I thought I saw something on the NHQ website, but i cannot find it again, now.  Also, it did not seem to start and step one.  For example, the drill training for week #1 was on column movements, rather than the standing and facing movements.

Thanks in advance for any help

Hey guys, I am going to be the First Sergeant at my squadron, and I am wondering if anyone knows/has the attention to orders script. You know the one that I read during promotions? Thanks

False. I don't buy it at all.

And if true, then a VDRP is in order for their training and crew scheduling programs.

They have to have training on the type before they can operate.

Who are you, Dwight Schrute?

I don't know about any ground prep/familiarity training they may have had in advance of flying the plane, like, I dunno, 2-3 days in the ground procedures training aid, or a day in the sim.

I just had to laugh because her comment was something like "My first clue it was the Max was by looking at the flap gauge. (That doesn't look right... what are we flying? lol)"

If I was boarding and heard the pilot say "What kind of airplane is this?" I'd be saying "Uh, yeah, I need to switch my flight please..."

I know her pretty well, she's a captain at a well established US airline that flies a lot more airplanes than just 737s. I think the crew scheduling and dispatch people know their business, too.

I have a friend who is a 737 captain for a US major.  A month or so back, her and her FO arrived to find their equipment was an 8 Max. Neither had flown an 8 Max, but apparently it was allowed,   so off they went.

False. I don't buy it at all.

And if true, then a VDRP is in order for their training and crew scheduling programs.

That would be true if the 737-700 MAX was considered a seperate type from the 737-700, but the FAA considers them to be the same type.

1 - Being willing to serve is the first prereq
2 - Having the grit to see it thru regardless of the monumental stupid that can follow is the second
3 - Assuming the above (and thank you if you qualify, as we need you - even though all we will do is [censored] and complain instead of saying "thank you" and "how can I help"), I suggest either GES or CP - although if what I am seeing locally is generic then IG makes sense as well.

Good luck and again - thank you for being willing to do the most thankless job in the Patrol.

My prediction would be Where seniors wear the specialty track badges, centered on the left pocket, maybe right pocket if rocketry badge is worn. We'll see once they put it out.
