As part of Civil Air Patrol, my son Jonathan was allowed to participate with 2 other members in his squadron (KYANG 123) during F-35 Fighter flight simulations.*

For his flight, Jonathan chose to land on an aircraft carrier. You can hear his instructor, an Iraqi War Veteran pilot, in the background.

This is just one of the many cool opportunities the Civil Air Patrol make available for young men and women.

And now, here is Jonathan performing a 3-wire landing. I couldn’t have done it.

 

There’s so much to say about CAP and the MISSIONS it fulfills for America. I’ll share more in future posts.

*Special thanks to KY 039 for making this possible.

P.S. You’ll have to take my word for it that I didn’t faint:)
