Civil Air Patrol is a squadron of young people and adults. Civil Air Patrol has a fantastic but not widely-known program for youth 12-18 that focuses on character development, leadership, aerospace education, and fitness.
Cadets have fun and gain self-confidence while learning and participating in real world, hands-on activities.
Adult members can supervise and mentor cadets, perform aviation and ground services, participate in emergency response efforts, and promote aerospace education. Civil Air Patrol is the U.S. Air Force Auxiliary.
