Civil Air Patrol develops character and advances education. While many volunteer organizations perform activities, our members complete missions for federal, state and local agencies and mentor future generals of leaders.

Our actions restore hope, rebuild communities and save lives. Young men and women can expect to be challenged and will be rewarded with the confidence, self-worth and accomplishment that can only come from rising to the occasion and making a real and measurable difference when called upon.

As a CAP pilot, you perform some of the organizations’ most important work.  CAP is also a great place for you to meet and work with people who share your interest in flying and want to use their skills in a meaningful way.  CAP owns the largest fleet of single-engine piston aircraft in the nation, primarily Cessna 172s and 182s, and CAP pilots are able to fly those planes to perform CAP missions in service to their local communities.
