The squadrons of New Hampshire Wing, Civil Air Patrol are looking for Airborne Photographer / Aircrew Trainees to become part of the all-volunteer Auxiliary of the United States Air Force.
Airborne Photographers & Aircrew Trainees train to become members of Civil Air Patrol (CAP) flight crews that are tasked with aerial photography, search & rescue, or disaster assessment missions. Photographers and aircrew members act as additional eyes in the sky, conducting visual searches and other duties as assigned. This Aircrew specialty requires in-depth training in CAP emergency services and a volunteer commitment of regular training meetings and occasional weekend Search and Rescue exercises, which can take up to a year to accomplish.
If you’re up for the task, CAP offers ordinary citizens stimulating training opportunities that few experience outside the military.
Your local Civil Air Patrol unit is training and preparing its members in the skills necessary to meet our mission of providing emergency services to the public in a time of need:
The Concord Squadron meets each Thursday night at 6:30 p.m. at the Concord Army National Guard Armory (1 Minuteman Way, Concord).
Strong organizational and communication skills;
Aged 18 or older;
Ability to pass a background check;
Enthusiasm for community service.
We invite you to visit a weekly squadron meeting. You'll get a chance to meet some of our members who will discuss the organization, provide you with information and answer any questions you might have about the Civil Air Patrol.
