I have a squadron member who has about 85 hours PIC and a current form 5 that would like fly their son who is still a cadet (just turned 18). Is that permissible? If so, is there a regulation that clarifies that?

What do you mean "would like to fly?"

What's the purpose of the flight?

Sure, but in a rental or an aircraft they own.  Not a CAP aircraft.  FWIW, 85 hours PIC ain't much experience.  There are very convincing (dead) reasons why CAP wants pilots who fly cadets in corporate aircraft to have a bit more experience.

A pilot can carry whoever they want in an aircraft they own or have rented as long as they are flying IAW FAR.  What makes this proposed flight a CAP Activity?

Every CAP flight is a sortie, is attached to a mission number with an IC, and is required to have a specific training or mission
purpose, even rental "proficiency flying".

A flight like this would not be releasable.

The flight would be either self funded flight or corporate mission, not AFAM.

That doesn't change anything.

Because it's a CAP plane and there are rules about how those planes are used. Taking junior on a sunset flight ain't on the list.

I think that was his point—a PIC can go rent a plane, rather than use the CAP plane.

@ OP: Bottom line is that if it's in a CAP aircraft, it needs to be for CAP purposes. Local flying and joyriding isn't on the docket, despite the "flying club" member you see doing "training sorties" now and then. There's a chance that they're doing B.S. "proficiency flying" because they want to go fly, and it's not a proper example to set.
