1. THE HONOR SYSTEM as it is known at the Flying Cadet Detachment is based on the CODE OF HONOR of the United States Corps of Cadets and applies in every respect to all phases of life of a Flying Cadet. It is the CODE which guides the destiny of each individual both as a Flying Cadet and later as an Officer of the armed services.

2. HONOR is that natural and inherent standard of distinction of proper conduct in dealing with one’s fellow-man, and is that quality which is so essential to him who is, or intends to be, a leader of men in the profession of arms.

3. THE HONOR SYSTEM DOES NOT TOLERATE:

(a) CHEATING IN ANY FORM ─ The giving or receiving of any information in any manner that will give one Flying Cadet an unfair advantage over another.

(b) FALSE OFFICIAL STATEMENTS ─ Any statement, oral or written made by an individual in an official capacity with the intent to deceive, or otherwise to convey or alter an untrue fact. This includes the falsifying of official records or reports or taking undue advantage of an absence card entry.

(c) QUIBBLING ─ Any attempt to impart a false impression or to conceal a fact by using a technicality which, in itself, may be a true statement.

(d) ACQUIESCENCE TO A BREACH OF HONOR ─ Any Flying Cadet who is cognizant of a breach of honor and who fails to report such a fact is equally as responsible as the guilty party.

THE FLYING CADET’S WORD WHETHER WRITTEN OR SPOKEN IS HIS BOND.
