    An order form for BCT Experience Portraits is asking for a Flight Group. I'm aware of the current "Letter" designations, but not aware of a number for the flights. Anyone?

    I believe they're refering to 4 flight groups 1 thru 10,11 thru 20,21 thru 30 and 31 thru 40. Flight Group 1,2,3and 4 respectively. So if the cadet is from Executioners C that would be 19 and that would be in 2nd group.

    I believe that your Basic will have to tell you which Flight they are in for you to answer this question. Each of the current alphabetic squadrons (Aggressors, etc.) has 4 flights -- labeled A, B, C and D. Knowing your Basics Flight also allows you to figure out what fall/academic year Squadron your Basic will join. All Basic Aggressors will join Squadrons 1, 2, 3, or 4 depending on their Basic flight assignment. Flight A will join Squadron 1 for the academic year. Aggressors Flight B will join Squadron 2 for the academic year. Aggressors Flight C will join Sqaudron 3, Aggressors Flight D will join Squadron 4. And so on to Jaguars Flight D which will join Squadron 40. A parent has probably already posted a "conversion" chart so to speak on Webguy (or maybe Webguy has already posted a chart showing how Basic assignments move to fall/academic year squadrons).

    So, I'm concluding that Cobra Squadron will be Flights 9, 10, 11, and 12. Now I just have to figure out which one! Thanks for the help!
