Orientation Rides

With the click of a seatbelt, you’re off and away! Under the care and direction of a trained and experienced, Civil Air Patrol pilot, cadets can experience the miracle of flight first hand in 10 Orientation Flights or “O-Rides”, as part of their membership with Civil Air Patrol. Cadets actually take the controls and fly the plane at designated times during the flight and learn about aviation and aerospace concepts in real-time. For many, the experience leads to a life-long interest, hobby or career.
