Cadet Aviation Seminars

Great Lakes Region Cadet Aviation Seminars

Great Lakes Region Aviation Enrichment

This online aviation experience is a chance for cadets to interact with a variety of experienced, engaging pilots on topics they find important and interesting. Some material will overlap with the Private Pilot curriculum, but this is not preparation for a written exam, it’s an enrichment experience. Being a safe, effective, fun pilot lasts far beyond getting a piece of paper; it means establishing a lifelong pattern of engaging with the rest of the aviation community and always expanding the boundaries of your own knowledge and experience. This is an opportunity to start that journey.
