Civil Air Patrol

Since early 1941, the Civil Air Patrol and its almost 60,000 civilian volunteers nationwide have been serving communities on land and in the air. Better known as “CAP”, the Civil Air Patrol is the official auxiliary of the United States Air Force and part of the USAF Total Force. Its three primary missions of Aerospace Education, Cadet Programs, and Emergency Services give ordinary citizens age twelve and up an opportunity to learn new skills and put experience to good use. Serving your community can truly be an adventure of a lifetime. ​
