Orientation Flights

CAP Cadet Orientation Flights

The Powered Orientation Flight Request Form (NCWGF52) is designed to allow Squadrons that do not have a based aircraft to easily request Orientation Flights for their cadets from a neighboring squadron

All requests must be submitted at least 7 days in advance. This allows for aircraft and crew scheduling. Once the request has been submitted you will receive a confirmation email. Squadron commanders should make every effort to coordinate with a neighboring squadron to schedule aircraft and pilots for the planned O-ride date. If the commander is having difficulty contacting local squadrons the NCWG Orientation Flight Coordinators will provide contact information upon request.

Do not fill out this form unless relocation flights are required.  If the cadets will be driven to the aircraft no advanced approvals are required. If aircraft relocation is required at least three cadets must be available to fly to justify moving the aircraft. 

If you have any questions or need assistance please email the Orientation Flight Help Desk.
