Once the candidates for the Cadet Flight Indoctrination
Program (CFIP) had been looked over by the committee, two were chosen by
the Longhorn Flight. In late May, the
Chairman of the Daedalian Foundation was sent our request for help in funding
their program as well as informing him that the Texas State Aviation FBO at San Marcos had been our
choice for the training.
Their training began on Monday, July 19th.
The National Daedalian Headquarters/ Flight splits the funding for CFIP 50/50 The students end-of-training flight
jackets will be presented to them by the Longhorn Flight soon.
Soloing is a great incentive to future young people
interested in making flying a career.
