Aerospace Education Weekend

Registration is now closed.

Wisconsin Wing's premier aerospace discovery weekend is back after a three year hiatus due to COVID! Come spend a weekend at the Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh with fellow CAP members from around the state. You will build things, design projects, test theories, and spend the weekend engaging in the fun and learning of physics, aerospace, and more! Cadets may also receive an orientation flight and just have a chance to make new friends from other CAP squadrons across Wisconsin.

This year there will be three training tracks that students can participate in. Note that there are pre-requisites for the Rocketry and Drone tracks and there is limited enrollment. When enrollment caps are reached, this website will be updated. Registrations for Rocketry or Drone tracks that do not meet pre-requisites or are submitted after the enrollment cap is reached will automatically be converted to Aerospace Exploration registrations.

Tracks:

  • Aerospace Exploration (General Education) Track: Students in this track will focus on exploring aerospace and physics principles through hands-on activities that construct experiments and projects.
  • Model Rocketry Track: THIS TRACK IS CLOSED AS IT HAS REACHED MAX ENROLLMENTStudents in this track will work on the Model Rocketry Badge. You must be a Cadet Staff Sergeant or higher in order to enroll in this track. This track will be capped at 10 students and you cannot have previously earned the MRB.
  • Drone/Remote Control Track: THIS TRACK IS CLOSED AS IT HAS REACHED MAX ENROLLMENT. Students in this track will work on drone and remote control piloting and technical skills. You must be a Cadet Staff Sergeant or higher in order to enroll in this track. This track will be capped at 10 students and you cannot have previously earned a Mission sUAS Pilot rating.
