Differences beween CAP and Flight Lessons
CAP flights are for orientation only. The cadet will learn to fly straight and level, make coordinated turns, climbs and descents. Cadets are not permitted to fly CAP Orientation Aircraft below 1000 above ground level. There are summer programs that are designed to take a cadet beyond the orientation flights up to and including first solo. They are held in the summer at different locations each year; the course is two weeks long and the cadet’s family pays the cost of lodging and food (around $250).
