Cadet (Not Staff) End of Activity Survey 2019

Staff End of Activity Survey 2019--coming soon


This site lists Civil Air Patrol's upcoming Cadet Special Activities (CSAs). It includes national activities and those wing and region activities approved to receive the CSA ribbon. These activities are designed to explore civilian and military aerospace careers, provide flight training, develop leadership, and enhance emergency services skills.

Beginning 26 March after 1200 CDT the CadetInvest Module will be re-opened for 1) Cadet Lift and Take-off Program applications for spring/summer 2019 activities and 2) Cadet Wings. Applications must be submitted before 12 Apr at 1200 CDT for consideration this round.

Those who apply for Lift and Take-off will be notified as quickly as possible if they will receive financial assistance. Lift and Take-off are needs-based financial assistance programs which will pay activity tuition and travel costs for cadets selected as primary for National Cadet Special Activities, including flight academies. Please be sure your activity director knows that you have applied so they will hold your slot past the 31 March deposit deadline.  All notifications for Lift and TOP will be complete by 30 April.  Cadet Wings candidates will be told their status by 30 April as well.

Connect to our SmugMug photo repository to see cadets and senior members in action.
