Group VI has a staff member dedicated to helping pilots understand the process. The Group VI single point of contact for obtaining your CAP check ride is Capt. Jaime Lichi, Please contact him for anything regarding this process, whether you are new to CAP, or just looking to renew you annual CAP F-5.

The link below will provide you the documents you will need to study and complete. In addition to the Pilot Requirements, you will need to get an endorsement from you Squadron Commander that you are an active participant of your squadron, holding a duty assignment, and that you are progressing on your specialty track(s). "Flying in CAP is not a right, it is a privilege" that must be earned by active participation at your units. Please understand that a negative endorsement from your Squadron Commander may result in denial to obtain a CAP F-5, but as you become active it can be revisited.
