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.

Communications / Radio Officer Trainee

Long Beach Squadron 150 of the Civil Air Patrol is seeking a communications enthusiast to become part of our all volunteer member supported 501(c)(3) non-profit organization chartered by Congress to be the US Air Force Auxiliary.

The nation-wide CAP communication system has 840 high-frequency radio stations, 5,000 fixed-land radio stations and 10,000 mobile radios, deployed in CAP units in every state, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.

Using volunteer operators trained to professional standards, the CAP communications network is a ready force for homeland security and the protection of life and property.

The Long Beach Squadron 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.

Veterans and disabled veterans are welcome to join.
