    The General Carl A. Spaatz Award

    The General Carl A. Spaatz Award is Civil Air Patrol’s highest cadet honor.  It is presented to cadets who have demonstrated excellence in leadership, character, fitness, and aerospace education.

    Cadets qualify for this prestigious award after devoting an average of five years to progress through sixteen achievements in the CAP Cadet Program.  Along the way, they develop self-discipline, a strong sense of personal responsibility, the ability to lead and persuade, and the foundations necessary for pursuing a career in aviation, space, or technology.
