Be careful with the use of the word FREE. Yes, the CFI is free, but is still a self-funded sortie. Plane and fuel must be paid for.

But yes, Its about a third the rate for doing it at a school.  :)

Quote from: Okay, to summarize the question:What gifts would be good to give a future CAP cadet?

Ideas thus far:

  • Black Boots
  • Cash
  • ABUs
It sounds like he isn't even a member yet, how about see if he joins, and if so, what direction he wants to go in first. If a new Cadet's parents asked you this on week 1 you would tell them to hold off on purchases until he has a few meetings in and decides the program is right for him. What good will new boots and ABU's or a bunch of CAP specific items from VG do him if he decides this isn't the right program for him, or if the membership review board decides he isn't a right fit for CAP?

Even when he does decide to join, what direction will he go? He may go into ES, but I would suspect an Eagle Scout will already have a ton of gear. Will he go to a flight academy and pursue his private pilot license? Who knows, cash is king and he can save it for whatever he wants, whether or not that ends up being related to CAP.

QuoteYouth members must be at least 12 years old and not yet 19 years old.  Cadets joining a unit in their school may join under the age of 12 as long as they are in the sixth grade.

Emergency Services & Operations / Re: CISM Question
Last post by SouthernCross - March 30, 2020, 04:22:58 am
It is not the purview of the Chaplain. CAPR 60-5 stipulates that CISM is directed by an officer appointed at the wing/region levels.

No need. I know of a cadet who joined at age 18.

Now let's get back to the original topic.
