5th Annual Pacific Region Cadet Competition Launches

(McMinnville, OR) –  Blasting off this weekend at the Evergreen Aviation Museum with a full range of challenges and activities, April 28th to 30th, the Pacific Region Civil Air Patrol hosts its 5th annual Region Cadet Competition. Twelve cadet teams representing Alaska, California, Hawaii, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington gather to compete for bragging rights and two winners will be selected to represent the Pacific Region to compete for the national title.

Civil Air Patrol's Cadet Competition showcases the full range of challenges in cadet life experienced at the squadron-level and new areas of learning during the 3-day competition. Cadets compete in physical challenges, test their knowledge of aviation and leadership, demonstrate the highest levels of precision and teamwork in posting the colors, and above all, cheer each other on in the spirit of teamwork.
