Cadet Leadership & Flights

  • Parkwood AFJROTC cadets become better leaders and citizens by working as a team to set, meet, and exceed goals for service, awareness, and fundraising; by planning and executing various service, awareness, and fundraising projects; and by competing against units from other schools in drill and sports events.

    At the top of the cadet corps organization is the Group Commander, assisted by his/her deputy. Two Squadron Commanders handle Operations (Drill, Color Guard, and Awareness/Recruiting Teams, Public Affairs Flight, and Event Staff Flight) and Operations Support (Financial; Logistics; Personnel/Information; Community Service; Morale, Welfare, and Recreation; and Fitness Flights) functions. Each of the 3-4 "classroom flights" each semester (Alpha, Bravo, etc.) is led by a commander and flight sergeant.
