You should just email a CAF squadron directly. Ask Toro about the correct format for your letter.
I will do this. Thanks for the tip.

Since you seem to have trouble telling if someone is screwing with you, here's a protip: Someone is always screwing with you. (I don't blame you, I blame California).
The only way to get a ride through ROTC is through the detachment, and that's only going to happen if you've been there for 3 or 4 years. If you get lucky, they'll go on a base visit or something and some slots will be available. Our det went to Whiteman this year and some of the pilot-selects got T-38 rides. That's a rare occurrence though, gas is expensive and cadets aren't worth it.
So don't do ROTC for the incentive rides. That shit's for non-flyers anyway, I can wait my turn.
I'm not doing ROTC just for the rides, I'm doing it to try to become an officer in the Air Force. However, if I can take advantage of this opportunity, I want to. I'm not going to drop out of AFROTC if my chances of getting a ride are slim to none, though. Thanks for the 'protip...'

When was in ROTC I was able to set up an incentive ride on a KC-135. I know it sounds boring, but they were up in order to gas up some F-22s. Pretty rad.
The trick was to ask my cadre if it was cool if I set it up, and also to tell them that everyone had the opportunity to go on the ride.
I would definitely enjoy any aircraft. That sounds awesome. Thanks for the tip!
