Welcome
to the Tallahassee Composite Squadron web site. We are proud to represent the Civil Air Patrol (CAP) in Florida's capital city. This web site is for our members as well as visitors who may be interested in an exciting career with the CAP.
Capt. Kenneth Jacobs, Commander

 


The Civil Air Patrol serves the following three primary functions:
Aerospace Education provides CAP members and the educational community information about aviation and space activities.

Cadet Programs inspire the country's youth (ages 12 to 21) to become leaders and good citizens through their interest in aviation and community service. Cadets progress through achievements that include aerospace education, leadership programs, moral leadership, physical fitness and other activities.

Emergency Services include air and ground search and rescue, disaster relief, counter drug, and an increasing role in homeland security. Members fly more than 95 percent of the inland search and rescue missions directed by the Air Force Rescue and Coordination Center.


Additional information regarding the Civil Air Patrol can be found throughout this web site or at the Civil Air Patrol National Headquarters web site located at www.gocivilairpatrol.com.

Civil Air Patrol, the longtime all-volunteer U.S. Air Force auxiliary, is the newest member of the Air Force’s Total Force, which consists of regular Air Force, Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve, along with Air Force retired military and civilian employees. CAP, in its Total Force role, operates a fleet of 550 aircraft and performs about 90 percent of continental U.S. inland search and rescue missions as tasked by the Air Force Rescue Coordination Center and is credited by the AFRCC with saving an average of 78 lives annually. Civil Air Patrol’s 56,000 members nationwide also perform homeland security, disaster relief and drug interdiction missions at the request of federal, state and local agencies. Its members additionally play a leading role in aerospace education and serve as mentors to more than 24,000 young people currently participating in the CAP cadet program. Performing missions for America for the past 75 years, CAP received the Congressional Gold Medal in 2014 in honor of the heroic efforts of its World War II veterans. CAP also participates in Wreaths Across America, an initiative to remember, honor and teach about the sacrifices of U.S. military veterans. Visit www.capvolunteernow.com for more information.
