CAF Cadets Meet Up In San Antonio

Two Units Meet To Discuss and Update Program

Cadets from Maxine Flournoy 3rd Coast Squadron’s new CAF Cadet program took a trip to San Antonio to meet with Cadets at the “Tex” Hill Wing recently.

They used the opportunity to refresh their Cadet program for young CAF members, giving students the chance to gain experience in aircraft restoration. They will be restoring a 1940 J-4A Cub Coupe that flew with the Civil Air Patrol during WWII.

The Tex Hill Wing, a CAF Unit in San Antonio, is lead by Darren Bond and other Unit Members. The 3rd Coast Squadron Cadets visited them in July to get some guidance on upcoming events and went for a hangar tour. Bond established the successful program at Tex Hill a few years ago and took the opportunity to show the Squadron Cadets the BT-13, which the Tex Hill Cadets are currently restoring.

The meetup gave them the opportunity to learn from each other and see the similarities in their project goals.

After lunch and the tour, the Units went to Castroville, Texas airport where they met local aviator Lee Delavan. He is currently restoring a 1941 J-4E Cub Coup, very similar to the 3rd Coast Squadron Cadets. After taking care of business, the group went to Six Flags Fiesta Texas amusement park.
