An overnight aircraft carrier embark opportunity departing out of Naval Air Station North Island is available for up to 16 Sea Cadet leaders on Monday, June 15, 2015.

Participants in the DV program fly out to an aircraft carrier while it is operating off the coast of Southern California, departing Naval Air Station North Island (NASNI) in San Diego, via a Navy C-2 Greyhound and experience an arrested landing on the ship. Guests stay aboard the ship overnight, observing day and nighttime flight operations, and fly back to NASNI the following afternoon, experiencing a catapult launch off of the ship.

These embarks are meant to increase the public's understanding and appreciation for the Navy by providing guests an opportunity to view an aircraft carrier in action through direct interactions with Sailors and demonstrations of the unique capabilities of Naval aviation. The nominations are not to be sold or bartered in any way, and are not intended to be used as a reward or to promote any organization. Guests participating on a DV embark should not engage in business practices by attempting to sell products or promote themselves, or their organization, during the visit. Also, there is a five-year restriction on guests re-embarking; so anyone that went in your previous group, cannot participate on this embark.

Each guest must pay their own commercial transportation and lodging costs to and from San Diego, and will be charged $50 when embarking the ship to cover meals and other items provided. Guests are berthed, two per stateroom; so they should expect to be lodged with another guest. Males and females are berthed separately and should be nominated in pairs to accommodate the available berthing on the ship.

There are a few things that should be considered before replying to this query:

PHYSICAL EXERTION: There are no elevators for moving people on an aircraft carrier. Guests must be fully mobile and able to climb 10 stories of stairs in order to reach the Bridge and other upper-deck areas of the ship. You will make this climb a MINIMUM of two times during your visit to an aircraft carrier, depending on flight operations and schedules.
Another physical obstacle unknown to most guests is 'knee-knockers'. They are 12-inch high doorways cut into steel bulkheads (walls) that are located throughout the ship. Moving from bow to stern, guests will pass through dozens of these doorways requiring a 'high step' to clear each bulkhead.
During military aircraft flights, guest may experience multiple G-forces during take-offs, landings, and while the aircraft is in flight. The G-forces don't last long, but guests with back or joint issues may experience some discomfort.
Embarking guests must be over age 18, and not have reached their 75th birthday prior to the embark.

SAFETY CONSIDERTIONS: Naval aircraft and vessels are designed for the typical age and physiological characteristics of Sailors and Officers. Guests who are obese, or greatly exceed those physiological characteristics that cannot fit into a Navy aircraft passenger seat or floatation device with all of the safety connections properly attached, will not be allowed to participate.
Guests will be moving throughout the ship and into spaces that may need to be closed/secured during drills/emergencies. When moving between decks, guests MAY need to pass through smaller openings between floors, known as scuttles. Scuttles are round openings that are 53-inches in circumference. For personal safety reasons, any guest who is unable to fit through a scuttle should not participate in the DV program.
Guests who are not physically able to overcome these obstacles should reconsider their participation in the DV program. We want to make this a memorable visit for all, and that won't happen if a guest is physically unable to move around the ship, or is spending time in the Sick Bay.

Information about what to expect as a guest of the Distinguished Visitor Embark Program can be found by visiting the Commander Naval Air Forces Embark Information Webpages at: The webpages will provide you with needed information prior to your embark; so please review each tab under the Embark Information section.

If you have any questions, please e-mail or call me.

Best regards,




Need the units to log into Magellan and update the cadets and adults records to include correspondence courses, training etc. The records are not updated and it is causing problems along the COC to make promotions. Some are taking weeks and should only take a couple days but because Magellan is not current with training and  Courses the promotions keep getting kicked back.
