Educators and role models, trusted adults who enable cadets to grow and succeed through CAP's carefully-designed Cadet Program.Cadet Program Goal is to Transform youth into dynamic Americans and aerospace leaders.
The Maxwell Composite Squadron has a long history of providing youth ages 12-21 a safe, positive place to develop leadership skills and strong character, while exploring aviation and STEM careers. The squadron is in need of adults to work with cadets, assisting with planning, coordinating, training and mentorship.
Additionally, as a volunteer with the CAP you can participate in Search and Rescue missions, training exercises, and disaster relief efforts as part of the Auxiliary to the USAF. If that isn't your thing we also have opportunities in Cadet Leadership Programs, Aerospace Education, sUAS (drones), Aerial Photography, Pilot, Scanner, Observer, Logistics, Planning, Public Affairs, and Communications/Radio Operator. We have MANY opportunities to chose from.
If you’re up for the task, CAP offers ordinary citizens stimulating training opportunities few experience outside the military.
Our volunteer members train diligently to acquire the life-saving and emergency service skills necessary to assist Federal and State humanitarian agencies when disaster strikes; participate in search and rescue missions; and help keep communities safe through homeland security effort.
While the central focal point of our effort is training and preparation of aircrew for the Alabama Wing fleet, there are many roles available to non-flying members such as radio communications, logistics, planning, and mission staff participation.
Consider visiting Maxwell Composite Squadron with meetings each Tuesday at 6:00 p.m. on Maxwell AFB, Alabama.
We invite and welcome you to be our guest for an evening at one of our weekly squadron meetings. ADVANCE NOTICE IS REQUIRED. When you arrive (we will meet you at the front Welcome Center and escort you on base), where you'll get a chance to meet some of our members who can share with you the organization and provide you with information and answer any questions you might have.
