Breaking it off from the other hijacked thread...

How did we not secure some of this for our own cadets?

There's supposed to be money in there for CAP, JROTC and ROTC.

"Details in late October"...so...



Take-Off Program - TOP Cadet (Second Cadet Year)
Merit-based program supporting cadets at week-long powered and glider flight academies, possibly leading at a solo flight
Lift Program (Second Year Cadet)
Need-based supporting cadets at week-long career explorations (NCSAs)

Cadet Wings Program (Third Cadet Year & Beyond)
Merit-based program for cadets pursuing a private pilot certificate; ultra-competitive...jewel of cadet life

"Details in late October"...so...

I suppose its not fair to judge something on a tag line, but "ultra competitive" generally means
"a couple few" and most cadets won't even bother, however since CAP doesn't rate their cadets on years,
one could conjecture this is actually the ROTC plan which probably just has them attending summer
flight academies.

No idea why they'd have to join, but that's also a nice little mess to deal with from a structure standpoint.
Does a third year ROTC cadet come in as a slick-sleeve CAP cadet?

Won't many if not most ROTC cadets be over 19?

"Those measures include:

$1 million for formal flight instruction of CAP cadets, which is expected to lead to about 240 cadets soloing and another 60 earning their Federal Aviation Administration private pilot certificate;

$400,000 for CAP to provide cadet orientation flights for Air Force ROTC and Air Force Junior ROTC cadets;

$500,000 for STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) program support that CAP will use to field more kits for squadrons to employ as part of internal aerospace education programs and for teacher members to use in their classrooms. The STEM money will also support maintaining and updating kits to sustain the program; and

$500,000 to support career exploration activities for CAP cadets."
