Yeah! I've been selected to participate in OPS CEAF and FERL this summer! Now what?
Each cadet is assigned to a flight, commanded by a senior USAFA cadet. You will travel with this flight during OPS CEAF and live and work with this flight during your 3-weeks in field conditions at FERL. To see which flight you are assigned to please see the preparation checklists. Make sure you read the
cadet handbook and complete the preparation checklists well in advance! These checklists itemize the supplies you need to pack, as well as, the immunization and special travel preparations required to participate in overseas travel.
