Are we authorized to wear CAP pilot wings with our uniform when not yet checked out in a CAP aircraft? Such as, a member who is a current private pilot but does not yet meet the CAP requirements?


No. 


To wear the CAP pilot wings, you must be qualified as a CAP pilot which means meeting the requirements outlined in CAPR 35-6 which includes passing a CAPF 5 flight checks.  Once the CAP pilot wings are earned, the member does not need to remain current to wear the wings.
