The documents gives nine points of interest discussing a new program to recruit more cadets into the CAP. It mentions one of the top functions of the CAP is to be a training outlet for pilots who will rapidly transfer into service in the armed forces. The document stresses the need for experienced pilots and teachers who can help prepare these young cadets for military service.
