Civil Air Patrol Cadet Camp at Missouri Military Academy

The week-long 2021 Wing Encampment for cadets with the Civil Air Patrol is underway at Mexico’s Missouri Military Academy.

Cadets from around Missouri as well as surrounding states are learning leadership development skills, aerospace education, and taking orientation flights at the Mexico Memorial Airport.

A surprise for the cadets this morning (Tuesday) came in the form of a Blackhawk helicopter landing on the parade grounds at MMA.

Mexico has a Civil Air Patrol squadron, the South Fork Composite Squadron.
