Cadet Squadron 15

The emblem depicts a black Prussian eagle against a white circle bordered in blue and black. The bird wears a five-pointed black crown with blue highlights and holds a blue sword in its right claw and five blue arrows in its left claw. A diamond-shaped aircraft aimed at the crown is centered on the eagle's chest. A blue ribbon trimmed in black has white letters spelling "PLUS OULTRE" at the bottom. The eagle symbolizes the tradition of professionalism and excellence exemplified by the Prussian military. The five-pointed crown signifies victory and superiority. The sword and arrows represent the number fifteen and indicate preparedness. The aircraft airmed at the crown speaks of air power. The squadron's motto is "PLUS OULTRE", French for "to the utmost." The original squadron patch was designed by Joe Hans Robert Wilson, class of 1963.
