More than 200 Civil Air Patrol cadets are on the Central Coast for a week long summer camp.
The program serves cadets 12 to 21 years old from all over California.
The Civil Air Patrol is a civilian auxiliary to the United States Air Force.
During the encampment, the cadets get to participate in activities such as a rifle simulator, drill competition and orientation flights.
"It was quite surreal being to look down on the ground and feel like you're moving very slowly over it, but knowing in your mind that you're flying at very high speeds," said Civil Air Patrol cadet Ronald Goennier about the orientation flights.
The encampment is required for members of the Civil Air Patrol to attain cadet officer status.
