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.
