About

Civil Air Patrol (CAP) Volunteer Position Vacancy Announcement: Mission Pilot Volunteer Member

Senior Squadron 150, Civil Air Patrol, US Air Force Auxiliary, JFTB Los Alamitos

If you’re a pilot, CAP has plenty of opportunities for you. 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.

CAP pilots fly reconnaissance missions for homeland security, search and rescue, disaster relief, and even counterdrug operations at the request of government or law enforcement agencies. They sometimes transport medical personnel and supplies and blood and live tissue. In times of disaster, they assess damage and transport emergency personnel from site to site. When not flying traditional emergency missions, cadet orientation pilots fly orientation rides for cadets and teachers while also maintaining their own proficiency.

The Civil Air Patrol’s aircraft are located at strategic locations throughout the nation to be readily available when missions arise. CAP members maintain these aircraft at the highest levels of safety and efficiency and have access to specialists at CAP National headquarters for maintenance, safety and training questions.

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.

Eligibility:

Must join, and remain a member of, CAP. Visit www.sq150.org for details.

The Long Beach Senior Squadron ("Squadron 150") of the California Wing is comprised completely of adult members and meets at the Los Alamitos Joint Forces Training base every Thursday evening at 7:30 PM.

Squadron 150 participates in Search and Rescue (SAR) missions, Search and Rescue training exercises (SAREXes), and disaster relief efforts. In addition to providing services to the United States Air force, Squadron 150 participates with other organizations such as the Department of Homeland Security, FEMA and Cal EMA (OES).

This unit is constantly training and preparing its members for the skills necessary to provide emergency services to the public in a time of need. While the central focal point of our effort is training and preparation of aircrew for the California Wing fleet, there are many roles available to non-flying members such as ground team, radio communications, logistics, planning, and mission staff participation.

Additionally, a new member can look forward to being tasked with a staff assignment in one of the necessary unit administrative roles such as

  • Personnel,
  • Emergency Services,
  • Safety,
  • Logistics,
  • Aerospace Education,
  • Communications,
  • Information Technology,
  • Public Affairs,
  • Recruiting and Retention, etc.

Learn New Skills!!! - Those interested in joining CAP and Squadron 150 should expect to participate in regular training and should plan on participating in at least three meetings per month.

Veterans and disabled veterans are encouraged to join.
