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. Typically, advertisements for activities we plan to offer in Winter are posted here by mid-October, and spring/summer activities are posted by mid-December. A list of past activities is under the "Helpful Links" section of this web page under the title "eServices Event/Activity Preference Numbers."
NCSA Registration Status Updates
*****WINTER & SUMMER CADET ACTIVITIES--updated 29 Apr 2021
Please note activities that appear as "not scheduled" on NCSAS.com, don’t have confirmed dates, but we are working to host the activity unless noted that the activity has cancelled. We posted the last activities on 29 April 2021. Encampment requirement is removed for some activities. Look at the activity ad page to see if it is required. We have removed the "late" date for registration so that preferences can be added without penalty. EServices Registration & Payment System is OPEN for applications for Summer 2021. Applications submitted in eServices through 20 Nov for winter and 15 Jan for summer are considered "On-Time" and are given priority placement into "primary" status. Use this "Apply Online" link to access the application site on eServices. Notifications of winter placements go out by mid to late December. Spring placements are as outlined on their advertisements on this site. Notifications for summer applicants will go out on or about 1 March and as activities fill vacancies after 1 March. Those cadets who remain on alternate lists may be contacted at any time to fill a slot.
