The objective of the aerospace education mission is to promote an understanding and appreciation of the impact of aviation and aerospace in our everyday lives. Internal aerospace education programs within CAP are aerospace education programs prepared for both seniors and cadets. The external aerospace education program provides education for non-CAP individuals through teacher workshops, primary and high school programs, and public information.
The CAP Cadet Program is developed around five program elements: Leadership, Character Development, Aerospace Education, Physical Fitness and activities.
To become a cadet, you must be aged 12 to 18. Cadets meet 3 hours per week and one weekend per month, on average. If you are interested in a career in aviation, space, or the military, then the CAP cadet progam may be the right place for you. Stop by a meeting, talk to current members and see what CAP is all about!
Our emergency services mission covers such areas as search and rescue, homeland security, disaster relief and life support activities, and emergency communications.
Members train in a variety of positions from Pilots, Observers and Scanners to Incident Commanders, Ground Branch Directors, Ground Team Leaders and Members and Urban Direction Finding Teams.
Vision: "Civil Air Patrol, America's Air Force Auxiliary, building the nation's finest force of citizen volunteers -- performing Missions for America"
