National Blue Beret
A CIVIL AIR PATROL National Cadet Special Activity
Have you ever participated in an air show?
Picture an air show where hundreds of thousands
of people come to see the many wonders of aviation.
In real life, that picture is the Experimental Aircraft Association’s (EAA) annual fly-in at Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
Participants at National Blue Beret (NBB) have the
chance to work at one of the largest and most
prestigious air shows in the world.
CAP and EAA will provide training for you to help
support the air show. Each participant will work in
several areas including the flight line and exhibits.
Training will include techniques of aircraft marshaling and electronic direction finding. Cadets will be encouraged to take advantage of once-in-a-lifetime events that often occur during the airshow.
