CAP is a volunteer organization. It is a private, nonprofit 501(c) (3) corporation and by Congressional charter is the official auxiliary of the U.S. Air Force. The eight CAP geographical regions are composed of 52 wings (one for each state, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia). Wings are divided into groups, squadrons, and flights and currently total approximately 1,700 units and more than 63,000 members. Air Force liaison staff are assigned to CAP regions to advise and support. CAP corporation and members own and operate more than 5,000 light aircraft, the world's largest civilian fleet, and volunteers fly about 130,000 hours each year on CAP missions. National Headquarters is located at Maxwell AFB, Alabama, and there a corporate staff supports the membership in aerospace education, cadet programs, emergency services, finance, human resources and marketing. Civil Air Patrol has three missions: Aerospace Education, Cadet Programs and Operations (Emergency Services), each of which is outlined below.
 

 

CAP aircrews hone excellent piloting skills through numerous missions. Over the years, CAP aircrews have provided assistance to numerous boaters in need. In addition, the squadron is tasked by the U. S. Air Force and other agencies for special missions. Other emergency services missions can include transporting medical technicians, lifesaving medicines and human organs for transplant. When disaster strikes, such as a hurricane, CAP provides emergency communication systems and gathers vital information for emergency management through aerial and ground reconnaissance. 

Please contact the squadron if you are interested in becoming a member or make a contribution to support our missions.
