For those just joining this page and those who have recently come to check it out the Frisco Cadet Squadron was shut down in November of 2014 due to lack of senior staff to support the squadron. The squadron may be re-opened at some point in the future but not anytime soon.

The 3 closest squadrons are Denton, Mckinney, and Plano and the contact information for each can be found at www.gocivilairpatrol.com. This page will remain active to keep the history and updates together in one place. Thank You.

This afternoon the Texas Wing Civil Air Patrol Color Guard(Frisco Cadet Squadron) presented the colors for the Equest Galla at the South Fork Ranch Located in Wylie TX. The national Anthem was sung by a local student from DISD and was the best rendition we have heard in a long time as it was sung very well in its original form.

This past Sunday our cadets enjoyed promotions night. We held abbreviated ceremonies for several milestone achievements with our amazing Group 2 Commander Major Schroder in attendance as our dignitary along with Captain Maso, a former Spaatz Cadet now Colorado Wing Senior, as a dignitary as well. Cadets Massey and King received their promotion to c/2nd Lt and will receive their Mitchell certificate once it arrives next month in a formal ceremony. Cadet Morrow was promoted to c/SSgt joining good company in the NCO corps of our squadron. Cadet Payne was promoted to c/TSgt, and cadet Palacio was promoted to c/CMSgt stepping much closer to his Mitchell award. We had two absent cadets who will be promoted next month cadet Voinoff who was to receive his Wright Brothers award and promotion to c/SSgt and cadet Reed, J who was to be promoted to c/SrA. Congratulations to all and keep up the good work.

This weekend several squadrons gathered together at the YMCA facility in Anna TX for Cadet Flight Fest. This is the photo set from the GTM 3 class taught by Capt Edwards of Frisco Cadet Squadron TX-389, C/2Lt Langley and Capt Cryer of Nighthawk CS TX-413. Several of our cadets were on the GTM 3 training and enjoyed it quite a bit coming away with GTM 3 and possibly UDF qualifications. They also had a lot of fun camping on site and having a bon fire Saturday night after completing an ELT search for the smores materials. A big thank you to Lt Col Whisennand x 2 for being the IC and mission staff for this event so we could train everyone who wanted to attend. Also thank you to 2Lt Lorenz and 1Lt Cowley for setting up and running communications for us over the weekend. Thank you to Mckinney CS for hosting this event and getting all the planning knocked out ahead of time.

Cadets Tomkins and Ding get to go on their first real mission to locate and deactivate an ELT on Mckinney airport. Thankfully the ELT was a non distress find and these cadets were both awarded their first find within days of completing their qualifications.
