Standards and Eval


Standardization and Evaluation (Stan/Eval)

CAP flight management is achieved through a safe, effective, efficient, and standardized guidance to those who fly for CAP. All pilots must complete a CAP Form 5 check ride annually to demonstrate ability and proficiency in accordance with specific criteria developed to emulate the requirements of an FAA biennial flight review.  Flight operations in CAP include operational risk management (ORM) techniques as well as defined regulations and limitations, all of which are either equal to or more restrictive than FAA regulations.
