Post date: Dec 24, 2015 4:13:13 PM

On 29 November 2015, our squadron's cadets got to further their aerospace training through powered Orientation Flights in a Civil Air Patrol Cessna 182. Depending on which flight they were on in their syllabus, the cadets got hands on experience flying the plane through basic and advanced maneuvers, emergency procedures, and learning about weather in flight. After the day was completed, the squadron changed it's total to 42 Orientation Flights flown in Calendar Year 2015 thanks to the great pilots at the Akron-Canton Senior Flying Squadron.
