Cadet Members - How to Join

To become a Gwinnett CAP Cadet you must:

 

Be a US resident, age 12 to 19

Attend a minimum of two cadet meetings

Fill out an application including medical consent form and health certificate

Pay dues

Purchase uniform items (see below)



We encourage at least two or three meetings of observation so you can see what we do, week by week, and be able to decide if CAP is really for you. When you sign up you will be expected to wear the unique Training Flight uniform. This uniform consist of the squadron Tee shirt, the camouflage pants, cover (hat), belt, and boots. Tennis shoes are OK for your first night but you must give best efforts to buy your boots asap. The complete Airman uniform is allowed for wear after you promote out of training flight as an Airman. The time in Training Flight depends on you. Usually eight weeks.

To find out more about our exciting and fun program, please come to any weekly meeting.
The cadet meeting is held every Thursday evening at 6:45 pm (1845 hours). See the option on the left for a map and driving directions.
 

Expenses

Cadet uniform patches, ribbons, rank insignia and accessories can be purchased individually. Some items are available from the squadron's own supply. A complete list of required uniform parts and accessories is provided with the application form available at the squadron and on this website.

Other expenses will occur, such as fees and costs for special events and classes. You will be told what anticipated costs are prior to signing up for special events.
