The Cadet portion of the Mankato Composite Squadron is divided into three sections, Tango Flight, Alpha Flight, and Cadet Staff.
Bravo Flight (a play on words for "training") is comprised of new cadets and those that who have not attended Encampment. The purpose of this flight is to train the basics of Civil Air Patrol, from drill to uniforms all the way to achieving their Wright Brothers Achievement.
Alpha Flight (another play on words for "advanced") is made up of Cadets who have either completed all objectives in Tango Flight or have attended Encampment. Here, cadets are exposed to roles of responsibility for the first time and learn how to use their training for the betterment of others.
Cadet Staff is made up of Cadets from those who are learning to take their first role in responsibility to managing other staff all the way up to executive decision making.
