Flying during COVID-19

Alabama Wing remains vigilant to operating in a safe environment. Squadrons are now allowed to have in person meetings with social distancing and masking. Some squadrons are still meeting virtually. Contact us to see how you can help!


Even with Covid-19 restrictions, there are tasks you can complete to become a CAP Volunteer, let us assist you. Recently Alabama Wing has been flying Covid-19 missions and we are always looking for volunteers dedicated to providing their time to train and conduct these missions.

ALABAMA WING is supporting the state response to the pandemic and is transporting COVID test kits to rural areas.


WE NEED PILOTS and other volunteers to help run our operations!

As a volunteer with CAP volunteers can participate in Search and Rescue missions, training and practice exercises; and disaster relief efforts as part of the Auxiliary to the USAF.

If you’re up for the task, CAP offers ordinary citizens stimulating training opportunities few experience outside the military.

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 volunteers such as in radio communications, logistics, planning, aerial photography, transportation, aerospace education, and mission observer or scanner.
The Pell City Squadron is constantly training and preparing their members for the skills necessary to provide emergency services to the public in a time of need: Pell City Senior Squadron meets the second and fourth Thursday 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in Pell City, Alabama.

We invite and welcome you to be our guest for an evening at one of our weekly squadron meetings, either virtually or in person. When you arrive, one of our members will give you a tour of CAP facilities, or if virtually, you'll get a chance to meet some of our
members who can share with you specifics about their particular unit and answer questions you might have about the Civil Air Patrol.

Qualifications: · Strong organizational skills, people, and communication skills. · Aged 18 or older for Senior (adult) members.

  • Willingness to become a member of the Civil Air Patrol. · Ability to pass a background check. · Enthusiasm for community service. Veterans and disabled veterans are encouraged to join.
