Help save lives in CAP Emergency Services
Civil Air Patrol Santa Fe Squadron
Civil Air Patrol conducts over 90% of inland search and rescue missions in the US, and saves over 100 lives per year. It has provided vital support for major disasters like hurricanes, floods, and earthquakes. The Santa Fe Squadron partners with local SAR teams to locate missing persons, aircraft, and vehicles and support other state and federal agency missions.
In CAP, pilots and non-pilots are welcome. You can train as an airborne scanner, observer, or photographer. If you are a pilot, you can qualify as an aircraft commander. Ground-based specialties such as radio operator, image processing, and staff assistant are also in demand. We expect to be utilizing UAVs (drones) in the near future.
In addition to our emergency services mission, a range of opportunities in youth development and aerospace education are available. The squadron also has openings in operations, logistics, professional development, public affairs, IT, safety, administration, and more.
