A Cessna Flight

Last week my boys had the opportunity to actually fly a Cessna from Centennial Airport to Front Range Airport, just one of the benefits of being a member of the Civil Air Patrol (CAP).

How cool is that!

The plane is only a year and a half old and it has the latest technology.

It’s volunteers like Lt Col Beabout one of CAP’s pilots who make this opportunity possible for our cadets.

As a member of CAP, cadets receive 5 Powered O-flights and 5 Glider O-flights. The Glider flights are very cool too as the cadets actually put the glider together.

Check out the Squadron Locator for a squadron near you.
