Welcome to the Brighton Cadet Squadron website.  We are a cadet squadron based in the Adams County 27J School District in Brighton, Colorado.  The focus of the Civil Patrol Cadet Programs is developing youth leadership skills, aerospace education, and emergency services. Cadets will have the opportunity to fly with the Civil Air Patrol in both powered Cessna aircraft and gliders.  

This is a special after school program with additional opportunities.  The Civil Air Patrol program is offered as an Elective credit through Brighton High School.

Youth ages 12, or have completed the 5th grade, through age 18, and parents are invited to visit.  Please contact the Commander if you have any questions, or would like to attend a meeting.

Squadron Meetings are held at:  Riverdale High School, 13380 Yosemite Street, Thornton, on Tuesday afternoons from 6:30PM to 8:30 PM.
