CAP Incentive Flights

The Incentive Flight program offers cadets an opportunity to experience Clemson from the air and begin developing basic aviation skills. Experienced pilots from the Civil Air Patrol take cadets on hour-long flights over the beautiful Clemson University campus and the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains. Cadets in the co-pilot seat will be given control of the yoke to fly, learning safety procedures, basic airplane controls and aerial navigation. Official flight hours are recorded and can help cadets obtain their private pilot's license and increase their chances of receiving a pilot training slot upon graduation and commissioning.
