National Flight Academies are Civil Air Patrol's premier cadet flight experiences. As such, student selection is a very competitive process, with a selection pool in the hundreds and approximately 20 slots available per academy. Earning a slot at an NFA is a prestigious honor that sets a cadet on their aviation career

"I wanted to publicly thank everyone who makes our Powered Flight Academy a resounding success! Without our volunteers, we couldn't provide the world-class aviation experience that our team delivers. When I was a cadet, I attended a Flight Academy and soloed a Cessna 172. That experience helped me to become an officer and fighter pilot in the U.S. Air Force. Today I’m an Airbus Captain for a major airline – all of which began right here, at a CAP Flight Academy! I know memories are made and lasting friendships are forged.

To be a part of this amazing team of volunteers, reach out to us for more information."
