Civil Air Patrol cadet completes orientation flight

Civil Air Patrol Cadet Airman Basic Tyler Archer completed his orientation flight recently at the Chesterfield County Airport. Cadet Archer, pictured here with pilot CAP Captain Patrick Riley, learned about aircraft operation, principles of flight and aviation safety during his flight with Captain Riley.  Archer, son of Ms. Michelle Archer Stein of Prince George, Va., is one of more than 120 members of the Southside Composite Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol based at the Chesterfield County Airport. The cadet orientation flight program shares with cadets the thrill of flying. Every CAP cadet under age 18 is eligible for five flights in a powered aircraft (usually a single-engine Cessna), five flights in a glider aircraft, and an unlimited number of backseat flights when conditions allow.
