About the Squadron
Each year Overlake Members provide thousands of hours of community service in the Seattle eastside area. In return for their hard work and dedication these Cadets (aged 12-20) have open to them exciting and one-of-a-kind opportunities in leadership, aerospace, travel, and flight.
