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 and the 30 April final payment deadline, in case the approval process takes you past the deadline. Cadet Wings notifications go out in batches depending on the pool of applicant's credentials. In all cases, those selected and those not selected will receive notification.
