Orientation Flights, or O-Rides, are one of the many opportunities CAP cadets have for hands-on aviation experiences. This past weekend, several cadets from Squadron 192 flew with a CAP pilot, learning how our planes operate and even taking the controls! In these photos, cadets receive a pre-flight briefing.
On July 31, 2018, Squadron 192 will not have a meeting for cadets. The meeting time has been reserved for Senior Member staff training.
Squadron 192 will be supporting Hiller Aviation Museum once again at the Planes, Trains & Hotrods show. Come out for some family fun from 10am to 2pm on Sunday, July 15. See Hiller website for more details: https://www.hiller.org/event/planes-trains-and-hot-rods/
Squadron 192 will be supporting the Biggest Little Airshow at Hiller Aviation Museum on June 2 from 10am to 1pm. Join us for a great day of family fun focused on small radio-controlled aircraft, along with some full-size aerial demonstrations.

Lately our squadron has seen quite an uptick in prospect members and new cadets. After answering countless questions about what new cadets need to know, we decided to put together a basic new cadet guide. So if you’re a new cadet in our unit or are interested in joining and are unsure where to start, check out the New Cadet Guide.
There are two uniform changes that have taken full effect as of January 1, 2017:
- The US flag patch on the BDU is no longer authorized and must be removed
See http://capnhq.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2682/~/us-flag-being-removed-from-the-bdus-and-blue-field-uniform for more information.
- The 100% wool pullover is no longer authorized and must be replaced with 50%/50% acrylic/wool combination.
Both of these items are located in Attachment 9 of CAPM 39-1.
The California Wing Commander has mandated the use of the @cawgcap.org email address for all CAP personnel when conducting official communication. For more information see http://cawgcap.org/about-us/commanders-message/entry/new-california-wing-email.
