15th KWTG Advanced Training Flight
The 15th Kansas Wing Training Group will host an Advanced Training Flight (ATF). We will be taking a deep dive into the events of the National Cadet Competition (referenced below) covering the do’s, don’ts, and best practices. Our goal is to provide cadets with the knowledge to prepare their team for the next competition. Cadets will receive hands-on training in each core event of the competition. Cadets will also be given a unique opportunity to understand what a judge considers when grading competitors.
