Chapter 6



6.1.  Drill and ceremonies are an important part of AFJROTC training.  As a first year Aerospace Science cadet, you will learn basic drills and how to follow commands.  We will spend a lot of time outside and in the gym developing your drill and ceremonies skills. The primary reference which all cadets will become familiar during leadership training is the Drill and Ceremonies manual.  As a second, third, and fourth year cadet, you will learn more difficult commands, lead the formation, and must be able to train cadets on proper drill sequences, commands, and basic drill fundamentals.


6.2.  Mandatory Flight Commands. All second, third, and fourth year cadets must command a flight  and have it execute a number of commands in a predetermined sequence as outlined in Figure 6.1.  The cadet serving as Flight Commander will report in and out by saluting the individual who judges the flight's performance.  Cadets will be graded on their ability to properly execute these commands and direct the flight within a specified drill area.
