PurposeCivil Air Patrol has a three-part mission that includes, Emergency Services, Aerospace Education and Cadet Programs. CAP volunteer members play a leading role in providing aerospace education and serve as mentors to more than 26,000 young people currently participating in cadet programs. Cadets pursue programs that develop leadership skills, advance the importance of aerospace and cyber technology and teach a sense of duty and purpose in community service. Civil Air Patrol, the longtime all-volunteer U.S. Air Force auxiliary, is the newest member of the Air Force’s Total Force. In this role, CAP operates a fleet of 560 aircraft, performs about 90 percent of continental U.S. inland search and rescue missions as tasked by the Air Force Rescue Coordination Center and is credited by the AFRCC with saving an average of 80 lives annually. CAP’s 63,000 members also perform homeland security, disaster relief and drug interdiction missions at the request of federal, state and local agencies. In addition, CAP plays a leading role in aerospace/STEM education, and its members serve as mentors to over 26,000 young people participating in CAP’s Cadet Programs. Visit or for more information. More than 1,500 CAP members serve in Maryland. Last year wing members flew 13 search and rescue missions. The wing was credited with five finds and one life saved. Maryland Wing flew 32 missions for the State of Maryland. Members flew 2,106 hours in all mission categories. Volunteers contributed services estimated at 4.6 million dollars.
ServiceCAP's Carroll Squadron cadet programs are structured leadership development programs for youth ages 12-20. Meetings are held from 7 to 9 p.m., every Tuesday in Westminster. The Civil Air Patrol is an aviation oriented volunteer organization where young men and women learn teamwork, leadership skills and have fun at the same time. The Carroll Squadron programs provide an opportunity for cadets to earn student service-learning hours as required for Maryland school graduation. Adult members can pursue interests in emergency services, as well as mentoring cadets in aerospace education and other cadet programs. For pilots, Carroll Squadron's Cessna 172 flies over 200 hours every year, most of which are paid for while our volunteers fulfill various Missions for America. If you have the skill and the desire to give back to aviation, we'd like you to fly with us. If you are interested in becoming a cadet or senior member, you are welcomed to attend one of our meetings for more information.
