Several OCS cadets are currently working on their Private Pilot licenses, after having completed the North Central Region Flight Academy earlier this summer. Cadets are paired up with a CAP Flight Instructor who will help them perfect the skills and training required for an FAA Private Pilot certificate. Cadets will receive ground training, and flight training in one of the squadron’s aircraft.
The cadets are fortunate enough to be trained in the latest Cessan G1000 digital “Glass Cockpit” aircraft, which exposes them to the latest avionics and autopilot technology. Hands-on ground training is conducted in the aircraft while connected to a ground power supply so that the cadets are able to maximize their understanding of the G1000 systems prior taking to the air.
