MARCO ISLAND SENIOR SQUADRON - SER-FL-376

Civil Air Patrol's Three Primary Missions

CAP's emergency services include air and ground search and rescue, disaster relief, and civil defense, as well as cooperation with and assistance to other emergency services agencies.

CAP's aerospace education programs provide CAP members and the educational community information about aviation and space activities.

CAP's cadet programs are designed to inspire the country's youth to become leaders and good American citizens through their interest in aerospace.



Many our training flights and patrols operate from the Marco Island Airport past Goodland to Seminole Park, to Port of the Islands, Everglades City, Pavilion Key, Indian Key, Cape Romano, along the shore to Big Marco Pass, from time to time extending its operations up and down the coast. Over the years, numerous boaters and aircraft crew members have been found and assisted by the Squadron. The Squadron also flies special missions called by the Air Force in other areas. The Squadron provides emergency services transporting medical technicians, lifesaving medicines and human organs for transplant. When disaster strikes, such as a hurricane, the Marco Island Squadron provides emergency communications systems, assistance in locating victims, evacuation, as well as aerial photography damage assessment for state and federal agencies.

Please contact the CAP if you are interested in becoming a member, or make a contribution to support our missions and rebuilding our hangar.
