By: Col Becky Tilton, Deputy Chief of Staff and IACE Project Officer
Each summer, hundreds of cadets from eighteen nations come together to broaden their understanding of aviation and foreign cultures through the International Air Cadet Exchange (IACE). And each year the Civil Air Patrol sends Cadets to foreign nations. Civil Air Patrol has been the United States representative to the Exchange for more than 60 years. CAP cadets selected for the Exchange have a reputation as being the best of the best; possessing great integrity and leadership ability; a keen interest in aviation and foreign culture; and the desire to share their experiences with theirfellow cadets, family, and community.

· Maintain this average over a consecutive three-achievement/milestone span, with no time frame.
· Scores will be calculated based on the first passing score of the test. Second attempt scores will not be considered.
· The cadet will be a member in good standing.

Ladies and Gentlemen:
year is winding to a close. As I look through my rear view mirror, once
again I beam with pride as I reflect on the extraordinary achievements,
accomplishments and acts of selfless service you have all provided to Civil Air Patrol. All three of our primary missions were executed safely, effectively...and therefore successfully.
As you enter this year's holiday season, please take this well deserved time to rest and relax with family and friends. I also ask you to take a moment to look in your rear view mirror; then give yourself a hearty pat on the back for your service, dedication and contributions to our amazing wing.
Looking ahead, I am excited by all the upcoming events, activities, challenges and successes. Above all, I look forward to continuing to serve you, and hope to see you all again soon in the new year.
From my family to yours, I wish you all a very safe and merry Christmas and happy New Year.
