About

Do you have a desire to volunteer or serve your community a few evenings per month. Do you have an interest in being part of an organization that saves lives. Although we are the Auxilliary of the US Air Force, being a pilot or even flying is NOT necessary as there are lots of opportunities to volunteer on the ground.

The Long Beach 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 radio communications, logistics, planning, and mission staff participation.

Of course, while we welcome private pilots who wish to become CAP pilots , the aircrew positions of Mission Scanner and Mission Observer are also in demand and may be held by non-pilots. Training is provided and no advance skills are necessary.

In addition, we have other positions available (Public Affairs, Professional Development, Personnel, Logistics etc..)

Participation in the CAP and Squadron 150 effort is voluntary and includes efforts by members in three areas:

  • Emergency Services Training
  • Professional Development
  • Specialty Track Training

Learn New Skills!!! - Those interested in joining CAP and Squadron 150 should expect to participate in a training period of approximately six months and should plan on participating in at least three meetings per month for that period until they have attained a level of competency commensurate with their squadron responsibilities and CAP career ambitions.

Veterans and disabled veterans are encouraged to join.
