Camden Military Academy’s Civil Air Patrol squadron holds weekly meetings featuring profes-sional instruction (by a Certified Flight and Ground Instructor) in aerodynamics, meteorology and the airport environment. Other instruction has included training in leadership, moral character, Drug Demand Reduction, communications and safety. Guest speakers have included recruiters from all four branches of the military. Throughout the years members attend a weekend air show exhibiting some of the world’s best aerobatic pilots and demonstrating some of the latest military tactics.
LTC Glenn Melberg, USAF (ret.) has been instrumental in this program since its inception. Major DeCandia, Squadron Executive Officer is a qualified Civil Air Patrol Command Pilot and Cadet Orientation Pilot. In the CAP Cadet Program, each member is eligible for five powered flights. Major DeCandia’s certification enables us to expose cadets to aviation in a way never before possible.
