Wichita, KS - July 25, 2005 - As part of an ongoing partnership, Cessna Aircraft Company and Civil Air Patrol (CAP) teamed up to offer a Cadet Special Activity at the Cessna Independence facility.

In cooperation with the CAP Aircraft Manufacturing and Maintenance Academy, (AMMA), Cessna organized a one-week "Summer Program" for CAP cadets. On July 17th, twenty-one CAP cadets from all over the United States arrived in Independence for the program. The week kicked off with an orientation program, including a Cessna history overview. For the remainder of the week, cadets shadowed Cessna employees in various stages of the aircraft production process.
