About the Cadet Advisory Council


The Cadet Advisory Council (CAC) recommends solutions and identifies opportunities to improve the Cadet Program. From the squadron to the national level, Cadet Advisory Councils thrive on communication within the Cadet Community. Ultimately, we advise the National Commander, represent the Cadet Community and work with the Cadet Team and Volunteer Staff to generating effective solutions.

At 17, Doyle earned his FAA private pilot’s certificate and shortly thereafter won an appointment to the prestigious U.S. Air Force Academy, where he graduated in the top 5% of his class. After completing training as an F-16 fighter pilot, he was stationed in Germany (NATO) with the 10 TFS “Fighting Tenth” (USAFE). On one grim cloudy day in the spring of 1988, 1st Lieutenant Tom E. “Popeye” Doyle’s F-16 fighter jet experienced sudden catastrophic engine failure while over the center of the city of Frost. Although he could have bailed out, 1st Lt Doyle elected to stay with his crippled fighter to guide it away from the shops, schools and congestion below. He succeeded in his heroic act, but perished in the ensuing crash.

In 1989, the Cadet Training Group recognized 1st Lt and former Cadet Captain Doyle by naming him posthumously, as the commander of the 49th Cadet Training Squadron. The guidon of the 49th Cadet Training Squadron appears on the Cadet Training Group shield as a reminder of our CTG hero.
