Our Mission

 “To serve America by developing our Nation’s youth; accomplishing local, state and national emergency and humanitarian missions; and educating our citizens on the impact of aviation and space.”CAP Mission Statement

Civil Air Patrol’s resources are almost unparalleled by any other civilian search and rescue organization in the world today, boasting America’s largest privately owned fleet of single engine aircraft and the world’s largest privately-owned short-wave radio net work. These, along with countless privately owned ground vehicles and nearly 60,000 members of all ages, provide a blanket of coverage spanning all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. There are also CAP units attached to US military installations overseas, providing CAP’s cadet program to military family members around the world.

“Civil Air Patrol, America’s Air Force Auxiliary, building the Nation’s finest force of citizen volunteers performing Missions for America.” --  CAP Vision
Group II Activity Request Form
Aerospace Education (AE) is "that branch of general education concerned with communicating knowledge, skills, and attitudes about aerospace activities and the total impact of air and space vehicles upon society." The aerospace education programs are designed to promote an understanding and appreciation for the importance of aviation and space exploration to our society and national security.
Emergency Services: CAP augmentes the Air Force in search and rescue (SAR) and disaster relief/disaster preparedness. The emergency services' primary mission objective is to save lives and relieve human suffering. To be effective, the lives of CAP personnel performing the mission must be safeguarded. CAP demands professionalism in organization, training, and mission execution to accomplish this service. Only qualified members are allowed to participate in actual missions. The emergency services mission includes search and rescue and disaster relief operations.

Cadet Program: Each phase of the cadet program emphasizes five areas of achievement: leadership laboratory, aerospace education, physical fitness, moral leadership, and squadron activities. The program is primarily oriented toward activities held in individual squadrons. Some of these activities include aircraft orientation flights, model airplane building, drill teams, model rocketry, and search and rescue, flight and survival training.
