Content Reduction for Cadet Packet 1
Posted on June 23, 2023 at 4:46 PM by Tammy Hallihan
Cadets receive a materials packet three times during their cadet membership: when they join, at their Wright Brothers, and at their Mitchell. Beginning this Fall, there will be a change to the aerospace contents included in packets 1 & 2. Cadet Programs will be rearranging the aerospace content in the first two packets to better serve our new cadets and save costs. Data shows that the majority of cadets complete the first two modules in sequence. Rather than receiving the full set of Aerospace Dimensions module in packet one, new cadets will receive Aerospace Dimensions Modules 1 and 2 when they join. The remainder of the aerospace books (Modules 3 – 7) will be included in Packet 2 when the cadet earns their Wright Brothers. Cadets can still complete the modules in any order, this only impacts what is included in the mailing.
Please see the attached paper that covers how this update will make the first packet more focused on what the new cadet needs for their first orientation flight and Phase I promotions while also helping CAP save money.
