The So Cal Wing offers a cadet program which introduces teens to the CAF. The program attempts to demonstrate the many ways that members young and old can contribute in a meaningful way to the success of the wing’s mission. The program also provides contact and limited networking with others who are involved in the many facets of the aviation community. The program takes place primarily on Saturdays during the school year. Participation is limited.
