The U.S. Civil Air Patrol (CAP) was established 1 December 1941 and is a private, nonprofit organization and incorporated by the United States Congress on 1 July 1946. The Hillsborough One Senior Squadron is comprised of senior members (adults) in contrast to the many Cadet and Composite squadrons that have adults as well as youth. The CAP is perhaps best known for its Search and Rescue (SAR) Missions. CAP flies more than 85% of all federal inland SAR missions directed by the Air Force Rescue Coordination Center (AFRCC).

Civil Air Patrol aircrews hone their 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.
