About our Squadron
The Jack Schofield Cadet Squadron (PCR-NV-802) is part of the Civil Air Patrol and is the only dedicated squadron for cadets in Nevada specifically designed to provide youth (ages 11-20) training in leadership, aerospace education, communication, and emergency services. Cadets receive training in these areas by participating in local and wing level activities that occur throughout the year, including airtime in a plane or glider.
The Jack Schofield Cadet Squadron dedication to cadets and high standards has won us both the Quality Cadet Unit Award and the Aerospace Excellence Award for 2022. Our squadron meets year round from 5:30 pm until 8:30 pm every Monday at Coral Academy of Science Las Vegas (Holidays excluded). Throughout the year, as cadets progress through the program they will also be able to attend wing (state level), region and national level activities. Cadets can attend activities that range from weekend Basic Cadet Schools and Leadership Schools to week-long cadet encampments and even National Cadet Special Activities.
During their cadet career, cadets will have the opportunity to participate in leadership positions, flight training, emergency services, communications and more. Cadets that reach the grade of Cadet Captain (C/CAPT) may apply for International Air Cadet Exchange (IACE) and serve as an overseas ambassador of the Civil Air Patrol Cadet Program in one of several foreign countries.
Parents are welcome to participate in CAP. No prior military service or special skills are required. Whether you simply want to help chaperon cadets once in a while or become a full-fledged senior member active in CAP missions, we would love to have you get involved in CAP.
