Texas JROTC Cadets Get a Taste of Flight

The San Marcos, Texas Civil Air Patrol (CAP) squadron is providing orientation flights to Byron Steele High School Junior Reserved Officer Training Corps (JROTC) cadets in the squadron’s Cessna 172 airplane. Lt. Col. Michael Hinsch, USAF (retired) is the Senior Airspace Instructor at Byron Steele High School. He stated, “We teach our cadets a History of Flight (first year cadets) and Science of Flight (second year) and these orientation flights culminate for us those lessons.  Most of my cadets have never flown a plane and it gives all of them exposure to flight.  We also have cadets apply to AFJROTC Flight Academy and we have our first two select cadets attending this summer where they will earn their private pilot’s license.  My cadets all share their experiences on their social media and it is the talk of their time in AFJROTC.”
